35 Possible Symptoms Associated with various Stages of Menopause

If you have two or more of the following symptoms, it COULD be the onset of peri-menopause. Many of the symptoms could indicate other problems too (such as thyroid), so it would be a good idea to make note of what you are experiencing and see your healthcare professional, who can then help you determine the best course of action for you personally. And remember, some of these are normal effects of the aging process where the only treatment is acceptance and taking good care of yourself! (this is where the laughter comes in handy!) Just remember, you are not alone! Join us on Facebook and Twitter!

2.  Bouts of rapid heart beat

Many women have reported feeling an increase in their heart rate and have become quite frightened at this feeling. No one seems to have a firm answer about why this starts happening around the time of peri-menopause, but it seems to be related to what others call "palpitations" and also panic attacks. The main thing is to check with your doctor if this seems beyond your norm. Of course, even doctors don't suspect menopause sometimes. Oprah couldn't get a proper diagnosis on her palpatations! She went to several cardio doctors, and not one of them mentioned menopause. It was her trainer, Bob Greene who pointed it out to Oprah!!
