Question what are the symptoms for menopause???

hi all im just wondering about the symtons of menopause ,i have some symtons but i read on my pamlet of the levothyroxine i take and the symtons are sort of like menopause my fsh says 47.6 i did have some deep depression and crying spells about a couple mos back but right now i feel better then ever since i stopped taking my levothyrioxine medication because it gave me bad chests pains that sent me to er i also had flu like symtons and headaches and dizziness and diarea i do sleep but thats because i take xanax i suffer from severe panic disorder im so confused im not sure if its my thyriolds or menopause my tsh is 1.5 but the dr i see is suppose to test my t's and my free's this is werid cause i dont really feel menopause i did have a ovary removed jan 2006 and right after surgery i went into sudden menopause and i dont feel nothing like i did then but after 2 mos i leveled back out and done fine till about may i was on effexor xr for 10 mos and they was not helping a bit by the time my psychiatrist found it because my dr thought i was crazy but he refused to tests my hormones or my thyriolds well mine was skyhigh of 8.45
so can anyone tell me the symtons of menopause i have no hotness nor nightsweats no more crying or depression i feel happier off the levothyroxine then i did on it im going back on something but my dose i believe needs lowered even though my fsh says menopause does that mean we all feel the symtons or do we go through it faster????\
need some advice about this .

Re: what are the symtons for menopause???

Here's a list I found online concerning the "34 symptoms of menopause". It seems very similiar to the "35 symptoms of perimenopause" that are posted on this site.

Changes in your menstrual cycle - i.e., longer or shorter periods, heavier or lighter periods, or missed periods
Hot flashes (power surges -- sudden rush of heat from your chest to your head)
Palpitations, skipped heartbeats
Internal shaking / tremor-like feelings
Night sweats
Vaginal dryness
Dry skin and skin changes
Formication (feeling like ants are crawling on your body)
Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
Mood swings
Allergies, sinus problems
Wheezing, respiratory problems, coughing
Panic attacks
Crying for no apparent reason
General irritability and/or anger
Hair thinning or loss
Pain during sex
More urinary infections
Urinary incontinence
Decreased or non-existent libido
Increase in body fat, especially around your waist
Forgetfulness, brain fog, problems with concentration and memory
