  • @ Diane porterfield-Bourne, Thanks for the response and advice, I really appreciate it. I am going to see what my GP says and I will give an update soon as I get a chance. Djdros52
  • Hi @Diane Porterfield-Bourne I have a question that may or may not be menopause related. Lately I have been bothered with hemorrhoids. I am never constapated because I eat plenty of fiber in my diet but yet I get flare ups. Swelling pain and itching. I've tried preparation H, tucks pads. I seem to get it worst after…

  • Brooke66, Hello, you mentioned you were taking supplements called menopace. What is this good for and where do you get it? If you don't mind me asking 😊 Djdros52
  • Thank you everyone! I will update you all when I know more. Djdros52
  • Diane porterfield -Bourne, Good morning, no I am not on hrt but on busperone for anxiety. I did not think hrt was given to people who are postmenopausal as it has been 4 year's since I had a menstrual cycle. I get hot flashes but no sweat. But these other crazy symptoms are a nucense. Especially the dizziness and motioning…
  • I will discuss this with my GP next week as he has done more blood work to check everything out. I am scheduled to go talk with him about my results and hopefully it will give some idea why I am having those feeling. Will give update soon. Djdros52
  • Hi Brooke 66, I unfortunately have been dealing with that motioning feeling as well. I am 53 years old, postmenopausal, and lived 2020 in ENT office. I have inner ear issues but they don't think it's really the cause. They don't really know what causes mine either, and I even went to therapy called bodies and balance. This…
  • MonicaM, I go through the flashes like that too. One other weird thing is that I feel heat go down the back of my neck to my ankles and there is this funny feeling under the soles of my feet. I have to kick off my socks or shoes because it's uncomfortable.
  • Hello everyone, I had a visit with my heart doctor yesterday and overall I was told my heart seems to be in good shape. The only thing is they found that there is a small leak in one of my valves and think that is causing the rapid heart beats. Although, they are not really concerned at this point, they put me on a…
  • Thanks Diane, I have also recently been to a heart doctor and was told I have a fast beating heart and I have a small leak in one of my valves. I occasionally get palpitations with anxiety. I going back on Thursday to discuss meds. He wants to put me on something to slow my heart rate. I guess I am a little worried about…
  • Hi Ladies, I just wanted to thank you'll for keeping the forum because it has helped me so much. I am taking buspron 10 mg 3 times a day and I still feel quite anxious. I am in the U.S. North Carolina and people are still not taking this pandemic very serious. I stay home for the most part but go out for food and medical…
  • Wow Julie 20, you've had the best Christmas gift to make your holiday. Congratulations on your up coming wedding. Good things do come to those who wait. Enjoy Djdros52
  • Hi MonicaM, just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you as well. I went through a similar situation bout 3 months ago. My GP sent me to GI to have a light put down my throat after I was having bloating, stomach pain, acid reflux issues. I was really nervous about what would be found. They found out I had a stomach…
  • Hi ladies, I have been away from the forum for a bit but now I'm back. I went to my GP and had a bunch of blood work done. My results were pretty much normal. I am indeed post menopausal which I already knew. The results showed I have a vitamin D deficiency and was put on a vitamin D2 supplement of 50,000 IU to be taken…
  • Hi Julie 20, I am also three years post menopausal and I was having palpatations quite regularly. Been to the heart dr. everything fine but found I have a rapid heart beat. Wants to put me on meds to slow it down. Not really sure I want to be on heart meds if nothing's wrong with my heart. I noticed also I get anxiety and…
  • Hello ladies, this is a very interesting discussion because I have been experiencing the same kind of weird head problems as well and my Dr. treated me for sinus infection which gave me relief but not total. I told my Dr that I think I needed a head scan because my head don't feel right and it feels like my head is full of…
  • Hello Dr. Frontino, I am 52 and have been through a lot this year health wise. In Feb I had pnemonia, in April I had a infected tooth pulled, in July had a stomach infection, sinus infection, all at same time menopause issues. I have been feeling very not like myself. My Dr. Did blood work and found out my vitamin D was…
  • Thank you very much the webinar was very informative. I will definitely discuss HRT with my GP at my next visit.
  • Hii ladies, I have flashes. What are patches you're talking about, and what are the side affects?
  • Hi Dawn 75, I just wanted to let you know that I have been going through the same feeling in my head. It feels like my scalp is being ripped from my head at times and like you describe that someone is squeezing my head. Feels like you are going to pass out. I have sinus infection quite regularly so my medical Dr is…
  • Hi Diane, Thanks for your response to my post. I stopped my cycle at 49 naturally. I recently was put on steroids and antibiotics for sinus. This is probably the problem with my head. The do have an appointment with the heart doctor on Sept 2 and I will update you with results. I'm hopeful that all is well. I am contacting…
  • Thanks Blanks for responding to me. It is really nice to have a group support that truly can understand what you are going through and you not look like you are crazy or weird. I am so glad to find this site. Thank for the links to the other resources. I hope all goes well with what you are going through also. Thanks again…
  • Yes I have blood checked every 6 months and had a thyroid check, all Dr. Said looked fine. I am wondering if it's all due to menopause.
  • Hi there, I 52 and stopped my period at 49. I get hot flashes that seam to start at the back of my head down my neck through my legs and burn my feet. Then I turn around and get chill's to the bone and my head feels like it has water in it, andy ears ring constantly. Any idea what I am dealing with. Additionally, my heart…
  • Hello, I am new to the site. I am 52 and very menopausal. My last menstrual cycle was at age 49. Recently I was diagnosed with acid reflux, went to GI clinic to get light run into my throat and was told I had a stomach infection. Took antibiotics and during the process lost 15lbs. I have had some crazy symptoms, like hot…
  • Hi l am new to the site. I have allergies and sinus and also hearing loss that requires hearing aid. Recently I went to ENT and was told had fluid in right ear. Placed a tube in that ear, and now I hear ringing all the time and head feels floaty. I'm not sure if that floaty feeling is from menopause or ears. I'm 52 years…
