I feel like the Gremlins took over!
a tubal ligation and cervical cancer, I was told I would be
thrown into menopause within 8 years. I now have Fibromyalgia
and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome on top of Perimenopause!
I say Hallelujah for this web site! I'm 42 years old. After several
miscarriages in my earlier years, and feeling so exhausted, I went
to my gynecologist in 1997 to have a tubal ligation. She found cervical
cancer. After several procedures and a tubal ligation I was told
I would be thrown into menopause within 8 years.
In 2000 I became deathly ill, because of another doctor’s
medical negligence. I now have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome on top of Perimenopause! Talk about not being myself! I
feel like the Gremlins took over!
About two years ago extreme mood swings began, and dizziness upon
changing positions (I blame on an auto accident 3 or 4 years ago).
Now I know that the dizziness isn't all due to that. Add flooding,
spotting, hot flashes, cold chills, RINGING IN THE EARS!, forgetting
words, brain fog, depression, dry skin, and brittle hair. I haven't
felt like myself for so very long! But, it doesn't end there. Now
add poor circulation, and pressure in the head. The only thing I
don’t have is low sex drive. Mine is full speed ahead, which
would be great, but I am single.
Thank you for all your stories! It is such a relief to put a name
to all the symptoms. Now if I just knew the exact date it would
stop, and the Gremlins would bring the real Sarah back!
