Is it or isn't it?
Ok, I know you guys can't answer that. And I DO have a doctor's appointment on Monday. But, that said...
I'm only 42. Lately, I have been experiencing hot flashes, sensitivity to heat and sunshine, headaches (some lasting for weeks, cognitive problems (can't find the right word, confusion, frustration with being confused, etc), a feeling of instense heat inside my head, and night sweats, and mood swings that feel like five to ten minute bouts of PMS, then fade away, leaving me feeling guilty for my irrational irritation.
I've been googling symptoms like crazy, and I keep coming up with two things-
Heat exhaustion and menopause.
I'm baffled and confused. Also frustrated.
I've tried all kinds of supplements, EXCEPT the ones for menopuase. I bought a generic version of estroven, and soy balance. Haven't decided which one to take yet. I read that someone experienced almost immediate relief from using soy milk. I wonder if the same thing could happen for me if I take the soy supplement?
How long before I can expect any relief from this??? Any words of encouragement???
