      Hi Jacqueline,

      So far I’ve had heavy/clot periods, aching joints (mostly fingers) bad mood swings, itchy scalp with spots, feeling tired and can’t be bothered, hot flashes but not often. A lot of them I didn’t realise could be symptoms until I joined this group, I’m sure I’ve got many more but don’t/didn’t associate them with perimenopause xx

    Hi yes I get this too on my right side earache, my glands are up slightly and dull headache makes me think I'm getting a bug as work in a pre school (germs galore) I've actually had it the past few days is it down to peri menopause then? I haven't had a period for nearly two years but the pill I'm taking does stop your periods so I just don't know.

      hi Trinity I also have the same issue with my right ear. it's crackling, popping and ringing. I also have jaw pain. did your ear symptoms start with other peri symptoms? mine started right after all the panic attacks and anxiety.
