      Hi Ruwaydah Yes, high blood pressure is quite common in the menopause and if you already suffer from it then it can get worse. Hopefully, the tips above will help your mom and she could check out her local herb shop to see if they stock any gentle blood pressure remedies that could be taken alongside her medication. Just remind her to drink lots of plain water every day as dehydration can make this worse as well.

      Hi Fauzi It can be really difficult to pin point what is going on if you have thyroid nodules, I think the best thing to do is ask to see your endocrinologist again and get them to review your situation as you don't feel better. Unfortunately, we don't have any remedies that would be appropriate in this situation, sorry. What you could check out is acupuncture, this can often work well for the endocrine system. You could ask your doctor if there is a practitioner attached to your local NHS and if so ask to be referred.

      Hi Fauzi Unexplained weight gain can be caused by a number of factors such as low thyroid function so it is best to see your doctor, they can do some tests to see why this is happening. Early periods are common as you start the menopause but are not good for you so your doctor does need to check this too. They may be able to give you some medication to stop the bleeding.
