background

I have been having heavy frequent periods for a while that have now changed to light and few and far between I also have just started having night sweats and hot flushes, coupled with neck ache and waking up at night. I guessed I was starting the menopause, although partly in denial. However, I've recently been suffering with acute anxiety for no apparent reason. Yes, my life is a little stressful at times but no more than usual. In fact, life has never been better and yet I'm very tense and anxious. Is this another symptom? my doctor has prescribed Citalopram, but I'm wondering if it's the menopause should I be looking at something other than antidepressants? I'm 52 by the way and don’t feel at all depressed.

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
