When you KNEW you were (peri)menopausal
Even if your doctor disagreed, especially if your doctor disagreed. I was scanning the posts and some sounds familiar. I had constant bleeding a couple of years ago at the age of 39 or so; the OB/GYN didn't know why, but we did a uterine ablation. Since then, I wake up every night so hot I can't sleep and have to cool down before I can return to sleep. I can't help but think, I'll look back on this and say yep, that was the beginning. I even wished I had a bed that was cooling like the opposite of an electric blanket. Or like the Chillow some of you suggested.
I bet you guys know in hindsight when it was even though no one was listening. Is there a big gap beteween when you knew and when you were "diagnosed"?
