Menopause is anormal phase

Last time I saw my family doctor, he said menopause is a normal phase for a woman and there is nothing he can do for me about my symtoms since it is normal or natural. is this really true becuase i feel terrible.he did send me to the gynecologist for check up and hormone test. I just want to ask women going through this, how you are feeling. For me I feel like i have a health problem that has not been properly treated.

Re: Menopause is anormal phase

Cindy - How am I feeling? Like I have new and miserable symptoms that need to be addressed for me to be healthy. When this came up for me, my family physician referred me to a endocrinologist. A gynecologist would probably have been alright too. So I do think my doc helped me deal with these new symptoms, even though they are, as your doc says, "natural, therefore, there's nothing to be done."
Cindy, I hope the gyno you've been referred to works with you - not just to do the bloodwork - but listening to your symptoms and helping you feel better. Yes, it is a natural process, but suffering terribly is not necessary!
Wishing you peace and comfort,
