50 symptoms of menopause seems outrageous.  Suzanne Somers talks about the Seven Dwarves of Menopause but really, there are many more than seven. We're finding there are more symptoms to menopause then we once thought. I've been working with menopausal patients for about nine years in a menopause specialty practice and have heard and seen symptoms of menopause than are not recognized by organizations such as the Menopause Society. There are about 50 symptoms most women experience due to declining estrogen and eating the Standard American Diet (SAD). We're seeing that estrogen deficiencies are at the root of many diseases among aging women.  

Let me make a note by stating that not all women experience all symptoms, or any at all.  The severity of menopause symptoms will fluctuate according to the diet a woman chooses to eat, the lifestyle she chooses in regards to physical activity, recreational alcohol and drug use, medications, surgeries, and sleeping patterns.  A woman may also have menopausal symptoms and not be in menopause.

Another thing I'd like to add is there is no particular age a woman could be in menopause.  A woman in her twenties could experience symptoms of menopause if her estrogen is low enough. No matter the age, if estrogen is low enough, a woman will experience some symptoms of menopause. The following is a list of menopause symptoms I have found to be the most common:

Anti-social Behavior
Bleeding Gums
Body odor changes
Breast tenderness
Brittle/splitting nails
Cognitive decline
Controlling behavior
Emotional disconnect
Lack of motivation or drive
Facial Hair
Hair Loss
Headaches & Migraines
Hot flashes
High Cholesterol
High Blood Pressure
Irregular heartbeat
Itchy all over
Joint pain
Low libido
Memory Loss
Mental decline
Mood swings
Muscle Loss
Night sweats
Not wanting to be touched
Painful intercourse
Panic attacks
Sugar addiction
Tearfulness and sobbing
Tingling extremities
Vaginal dryness
Weight gain

As you can see, there are much more than seven symptoms and some women experience additional symptoms not listed above. These are the menopause symptoms we saw most in our clinic.  We also saw most, if not all of these menopause symptoms disappear after a woman optimizes her hormones by a provider who knows how.
