    Hello. My doctor advises that I am going through the peri menopause. I get hot flushes, mooder swings, can't get a proper nights sleep etc which I get for several weeks. I then get back normal and a few weeks later get the above symptoms again. The thing that is bothering me is that I have memory loss all the time. I go into a room and forget what I went in for, forget key things that people have said to me and find my mind wandering when people are speaking to me which leads to me forgetting bits of what they said. Is this normal and if so will it get better? Is there something I can take to improve my memory? Thanks. Norma Ralston
