I'm 46 yr old, I have been perimenopausal for what seems like forever. I have migraines that go on for four days a month sometime around my periods.

I was just recently treated with cortizone shots for carpal tunnel, and as a result, suddenly I had 2 migraines and a period for the normal time, then started again like the next day and it hasn't gone away since! And the palpitations...ridiculous!

Has anyone else experienced this during peri/menopause? Or is the bleeding for 3 weeks caused from the cortizone, or should I get to the doctor?
