Hello Dr,

I still have very regular periods.I sort of think I am having menopause symptoms because I also wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep. I hear this is also a symptom of menopause.This sleep thing happens a few times a week now.

other symptoms would include the occasional hot flash, which does not last long.

In terms of other, I am a chronic migrainer with migraines about 3 weeks out of the month.

I had a bad one over the weekend.Maybe the sick stomach was due to the migraine OR the fact that I took a bunch of pain meds all day long.Ibuprofin and Butatatab( spelled incorrectley).

Look forward to your reply.

Dear Gina,
Thanks for the valuable info you had given & requesting me to answer you.
Yes,nausea can be a symptom of perimenopause.Infact it is a very common symptom of perimenopause.Other symptoms are:
-Irregular periods, heavy or low menstruation
-Hot flashes
-Weight gain
-Insomnia, difficulty/disturbed sleeping(as you are having)
-Low/no sex drive
-Breast tenderness
-Vaginal dryness
-Night sweats
-Edema or water retention
-Many more
Women normally go through perimenopause between ages 45 and 55.Menopause officially occurs when you have not had a period for one year.The symptoms you have described can be due to perimenopause.
So I advice you to consult your gyne doctor for examination & the hormone testing to know the levels of hormones & then treatment(if required) may be done accordingly.Eat healthy & nurtrious.Take nutrious diet containing good amount of iron,calcium,magnesium,multivitamins.
Hope this helped
