Read all Questions & Answers

I am having hot flushes during the night, my hair is falling out, and my iron levels are really low. I am on iron tablets 3 times a day and have been on them for 4 months now. I am also getting very forgetful, and when I talk the wrong words come out. I can’t think straight sometimes. Is all this the menopause? I’m 51 and have also gained weight over the last year.

Unfortunately, these can all be symptoms of the menopause. However, I would suggest you go back to your doctor and ask for a thyroid test because low thyroid function can cause these symptoms as well, so it is best to check. In the meantime you could try Sage Tablets to help with the flushes, and a magnesium supplement such as Salus Haus Liquid Magnesium may help with relaxation.
