Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
It is true that in menopause there can be irregular bleeding in amount or frequency.
As you are feeling shaky, lightheadedness, dry mouth, I think the bleeding is too much.
You need urgent evaluation by doctor in ER.
Bleeding will need to be stopped.

You may need hormone therapy.
If the hemoglobin is too low, then blood transfusion may be necessary.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
