Pre Menopause Symptoms - Self Help Tips

If you think you are in pre menopause symptoms you should look for are irregular periods to start off with because the hormones that have been managing your period like clockwork for the last 30 years have now gone berserk and love to cause havoc to your system.

You may start to feel minor hot flashes that only last a couple of seconds or you may notice that you wake up in the middle of the night sometimes absolutely drenched in sweat.

Night sweats occur often and usually signify then onset of other pre menopause symptoms.

People close to you may notice that your mood swings are happening more frequently and are more severe than usual.

Being irritable for no reason and snapping when someone approaches you could be a sign of pre menopause.

If you enter a room and the people in the room get up and tip-toe out you may be pre menopausal.

When you do have a period, and as time passes they will get fewer and farther between, the premenstrual symptoms you experience may be worsened by pre menopause.

Other symptoms include sudden cravings, depression, nausea, headaches, decline in sex drive, breast tenderness and anxiety.

Now doesn't that just brighten your day? Seriously!

Some women will never experience any of these symptoms and then there are the women, like me, who have experienced every single blasted one of these symptoms at one point or another.

Sometimes on a really good day they all converge and gang up on me all at once.

At that point all you can do is duck and cover and hope for the best.

I do not know how many times I have asked the various people who are closest to me to shoot me in the head because I just can't take it anymore.

They refuse to do it. So I am relegated to being a pissed off, sweaty, b-word for the next 5 or 6 years because pre menopause can last up to 10. Yes, I said 10!

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10! Where's the fair in that, I ask you?

Oh well, by the way, there are some things you can do for yourself that will help things go a little smoother and they are, keep your diet well-balanced and get some exercise daily.

Even if it is just a walk around the block. Drink plenty of water, and we all know what the recommendation on that is, don't we?

Stay away from caffeinated drinks, diet drinks with aspartame, quit smoking, and cut down on your alcohol consumption.

Try to reduce the stress in your life.

I have noticed that stress is a big trigger and alcohol will trigger a hot flash that will bowl you over like a tsunami.

Look into herbal supplements that can help relieve your symptoms.

Go talk to the person who runs your local health food store and see if they can give you some advice on what to take.

There are also a few over the counter medications that you can ask your doctor or pharmacist about to relieve your pre menopause symptoms.

If we are lucky, we will all get old someday. But wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t ever have to feel old?

While there is no real ‘Fountain of Youth’ there are things that we can do to ensure that we will feel younger longer.
