Peri or other?

brittwlSeptember 14, 2009

not sure if what i'm experiencing is peri or something else. i started having shortness of breath, sensation of anxiety and being squeezed high in the chest about a year and a half ago at age 36 - while i was still breastfeeding my daughter, incidentally. have seen pulmonary specialists, heart specialists (have a small shunt, but shouldn't be causing these issues)and they can't find a definitive cause. a few weeks ago started having hot flashes too. does this sound familiar to anyone? only other option i can think of is a thyroid abnormality, which i'll be checked for soon. is 36-37 generally too young to start peri? were anyone else's symptoms preceded by a long duration of shortness of breath?
