New symptom of menopause?
Hi all.......I have been in peri-menopause for about 3 years. As I've mentioned before, I have Fibromyalgia, which makes it confusing as to which "disease" I should blame for which symptoms. I never would have thought, when I was younger, that I would refer to menopause as a disease.....but for me, it has been! Okay....for several weeks now, I feel like my upper chest and head fill up with blood and isn't draining properly. It's not like a cold. It feels like my blood isn't running back down out of my head at times.......Of course I imagine that I've gotten a big, honkin' tumor sitting on a major vessel somewhere. It's funny (not!), but when I get these various perimenopausal symptoms, I also get anxiety and panic along with them, so that I perceive them as life threatening......even when they aren't. Can anyone relate?
