    Hi Rach,

    Welcome to the forum.

    It does sound very much like you are showing perimenopausal symptoms.

    If you find that they are becoming troublesome, I would make an appointment to see and discuss with your GP. In the meantime, keep a note of symptoms and dates etc so that you can give your doctor a helping hand!

    I've attached a factsheet which might give you some more useful information.

    Hi Rach, welcome to this forum & thanks for your query! Yes...it does seem very likely that you could be on your way to being perimenopausal as you're body is giving you new symptoms which relate to it! A visit to your GP is certainly advisable for a chat & I'm sure you'll be given a leaflet or two for bedtime reading! Good advice from Kaz above for keeping tabs & making notes of your symptoms which you can then have at the ready! Again the above literature should be most useful too......💕
