      Tell me what you think...

      Lately, I’ve been waking in the middle of the night burning up. I get up and come down to the computer for a bit because I’m too uncomfortable to fall back asleep. When I get back to my bed it is nice and cool. I know this is a symptom.

      Also, my memory seems to be off. Does this sound familiar?

        • LOL!  You‘re having “personal summers” estatic and yes, it sounds all too familiar.  I, too, occasionally wake in the night, so now my bedroom ceiling fan turns 24 hrs a day!

          I haven’t noticed my memory failing, except when I try to juggle too many responsibilities.  But I have noticed feelings of irritability and just being “out of sorts” at times.

          Not to worry.  Some of us are lucky and have only mild symptoms.  Hope you‘re one of the lucky ones!

        • Yes, and I thought after a complete hysterectomy (as I had) that it would be over...nope...night sweats, irritability, lapse of memory..and do you have days that you would like to rip something to shreds?..oh, and I posted yesterday about bladder leakage, yes, that does happen to some women.

        • A Great book I have been reading about this subject and hormones:

          The Sexy Years       Susanne Somers
          Anything she has writen has proven to be of some value and understanding for me
          Try looking online at Half Price Books I picked mine up for under 10 bucks

        • Yup, occasional night sweats and memory lapse. Sadness too.

        • I’ve had one night sweat...but most of the time I wake up feeling like I’m on fire! My skin is even hot to the touch.  I don’t sleep with near the amount of covers that I use to.  

          That is really the only symptom that I know I have.  The memory thing...well...I just have a bad memory.

          Sorry Annie...

        • Something sent my body into perimenopause. So I thought. I made the mistake of getting the norplant birth control after my daughter was born. My body has never been exactly regular though so it was (still is) really hard to tell what’s going on with it most of the time. When I was about 38 or 39 my period just decided to ‘stop‘. I thought I had finally went into menopause completely. Now that I am 41, guess who decides to show up?? Almost 3 years of NO period. I finally decided I needed a gyn to see what was going on. She did an exam and blood work and she determined my body IS NOT in menopause. I am so confused. Sometimes I wish we could look in our closet and hang up the body we have and grab another one when its not working right :(
