Hormonal symptoms after 3-4 years with no periods?

catherinetApril 2, 2008

Hi all,

I had slowly been stabilizing since I stopped having periods (after going through about 10 years of perimenopausal hell). Its been about 3-4 years since I've had a period. But recently, I got all the symptoms back......severe fatigue, headaches, sinus problems, GI problems, panic. I'm wondering if I had one good egg left and it finally errupted?? I wonder if this is how older women get "accidentally" pregnant?

I feel horrible. Just like I did in the midst of perimenopause.

Have any of you who stopped having periods a few years ago, had a return of all the symptoms?

I'm going to reply to my own post!
I have had such sinus pressure and burning and hearing my pulse in my ear, I finally went to the ENT doctor. I mentioned that I wondered about my hormones, and he sort of shrugged it off. I'm going to have allergy testing next week. But......after I got home from the ENT visit, I started having really bad ovary pain!! I can't believe this. This substantiates my suspicions.
I wonder if some of our post menopausal symptoms are from our FSH getting sooooo high, that it starts beating our ovaries into submission........to spit out any possible remaining eggs. I was pretty sure this sinus stuff WAS hormonal......but gee, its been several years since I had a period. Now I have to decide if I want the allergy testing or not (I'll have to pay for it out of pocket).
I suppose with all my funky symptoms (fibromyalgia, etc.), that it probably wouldn't hurt to see if I had any allergies.
But I suspect, once again, its these DANGED hormones!!
Die you ovaries, die!!

Hi Catherinet - Go to this link and hopefully it will help you. You might have to cut and paste it. It doesn't really sound like menopause to me. Hope this helps. Bobbi
