Dr. Shahzad MD :

hi there

Dr. Shahzad MD :

thank you for your question

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes I agree with you that since you are around the age of menopause you are having premenopausal symptoms

Dr. Shahzad MD :

There is a long list of premenopausal or menopausal symptoms that a lady can have at this age.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am giving you a weblink where you can read about some of the most common symptoms:

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Most of your symptoms do fit into the premenopausal symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since these symptoms are really taking a toll on you I think that you should discuss these with an ob/gyn doctor or an endocrinologist to evaluate you and treat these premenopausal symptoms with hormone replacement possibly.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do rate me for my services only when you are done asking.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Kindest Regards
