The media spends alot of time talking about the "hot flashes" & "mood swings" that come with menopause, but haven't given the full list.

Here's a couple websites giving the full list of 35-37 symptoms of menopause & perimenopause:

Here's a little of what you'll find at these wesbites:
1-menopause can begin as early as age 5 (called perimenopause).
2-menopause (the point where your period has stopped for an entire year) can occur as young as 20.
3-there are other symptoms, like sleep problems (not from night sweats), feelings of dread doom & apprehension, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, urinary incontenence, fears, anger, irritability, rage, nausau, itching, body aches, increase in severity of other medical conditions, regular mood swings, rapid mood swings, indigestion, headaches, increased allergies, giddiness-elevated moods, poor circulation & tingling sensations, unusual sensations on one's skin, etc.

  • Indeed I agree with Dxd that there is just a slim margin between symptoms of hyperthyroidism and menopause. Better have a lisence and expert MD check up on you.
