Hi, I'm Louise, 53 years old and I've been going through the menopause for about 2 1/2 to 3 years now. I feel I'm getting worse though. I wear the Ladycare magnet in my knickers and that has helped the hot flushes, I do still get them but not as severe. I still get a horrible clammy skin after one though, i just feel dirty. It's the exhausted feeling and foggy brain I'm having. Im making stupid mistakes at work and my manager isn't the most sympathetic person at the best of times. Im thinking of trying hrt but does your symptoms come back once you stop taking it?
