Don't Know if You're Perimenopausal?
I figured I was perimenopausal with the way I've been feeling for quite awhile. I'm in my forties, so it's to be expected. Anyway, I had hormone blood tests done, and it seems I'm not near menopause at this stage, so does this rule out perimenopause? I'm not sure.
But, I did find out I have Hashimoto's, which is a thyroid disease that causes hypothyroidism, which explains a lot of my symptoms. Depression, extreme anxiety, feeling like a ton of bricks fell on me, etc. Maybe there is some perimenopause symptoms mixed in, for good measure (sarcasm because I'm tired of feeling this way). Maybe some of you guys are experiencing some thyroid problems, too, because some of the symptoms I read here points to it.
