I started menopause naturally at 37. I'm now 51 haven't had much symtoms. However after watching BBC this week. I've had symptoms dizziness thought it was my ears but they are clear, anxiety so I'm on citalapram, my husband says I have mood swings cant say I do but he said I do!! My bones are starting to ache. I'm having night sweats only lately. So I went to the doc and I'm now on HRT. Just to protect my bones. Loved the BBC menopause week. Let's hope the above slows down. I must say the leaflet that comes with the tablets frightened me. Anyone felt the same.
Yes - the leaflet that comes with your HRT is pretty frightening. Luckily I had done a lot of reading before I started my patches, so it didn't put me off, and since I'd had symptoms for a long time, I was ready for some relief!
I read a lot of information from Dr Loiuse Newson that put my mind at rest, and I've attached a really good interview that she did on the Lorraine programme that covered a lot of concerns.
Hope it puts your mind at rest!
Hi Kaz this made me cry, I wish o saw this years ago. It has reassured me SO much I'm doing the correct thing and going on HRT. I've had a terrible 10 years struggled with sleep and anxiety used alcohol to help and still do. I never knew this. I'm excited now about me getting "Normal" again. Thank you so much x
Oh @dizzyclamityjane !!! Happy tears I hope!
What brilliant things happen when we talk to one another!
I was asked to appear this week on the BBC campaign, and quite honestly, I was absolutely terrified and almost didn't do it. The reason I finally agreed, was because talking and informing women makes a massive difference!
I hope you begin to feel better really soon 😊
Happy tears for sure. I'm so happy I found this forum. :-)
