AMS (After Menstrual Syndrome)

Hi, Im back again!

So I am 100% IN peri ...

My last 6 periods have been erratic...One day on 14th, next month 18th, next month 12th, then 18th, 14th and then 24th

I never get any PMS warnings anymore....Instead I get a headache at the last day of my period...

I get horrid cramps once it starts, and unsteadiness and shakes the first day.

This last period just ended yesterday, the last 3 days have been horrible. I felt like I was having an allergy attack, palpitations and Multiple Sclerosis and irritable bowel syndrome all in one...

Does this sound normal?

Hi and welcome back. Have you discussed your symptoms with your OB/GYN? She will be able to tell you what to expect and may be able to offer some suggestions on how to treat your symptoms.

Okay so I got a pap, Ultrasound, EKG and a battery of blood tests... I have a non cancerous Cervical Polyp, elevated BP & cholesterol (but not bad), EKG was normal my fibroids have gotten a bit larger,and my hormones show me in definite perimenopausal stage... But look this blood pressure stuff is driving me crazy I went to the hospital and had them check me out and thats why I had the EKG! I woke up yesterday with a headache and elevated BP 130/80 and I was feeling pain under my left breast in my heart. I just went in the kitchen to cut up watermelon and I was having pain and felt winded.... But the Hospital said I was fine and so do the Drs. Is this peri? I cant live like this.
