Are these menopausal symptoms??

I recognize cold & hot flasehes; last night my family thought our rec room was warm enough @ 76 degrees & still wanted our gas fireplace on as I was distinctly cold. I am confused by a symptom I just woke up with - maybe you can help.

Went to bed @ 2am (5wks post op - kept ovaries). Woke @ 5am with my heart racing & short breath. Thinking may have had a bad dream, I shoke it off, got up and doddled aound my kitchen for something to do. The heart rate stayed @ 104beats/min with no physical exertion. My stomach feels queasy, my head hurts, I am sweating and sitting my basement now @ 60 degrees not feeling the chill at all - Hot Flash??? What ever it is it feel weird! Not to mention, 'I want to go back to sleep!!!'

I have had concerns that my ovaries are not doing their job. I am going to the dr on Thurs. Just checking in to see if others have had similar 'middle of the night' symptoms.

Thanks girls. Hope you are having an awesome day!

Re: Are these menopausal symptoms??

I have never experienced cold flushes, only hot flashes and night sweats. Our thermostats are never ever set above 67! But the middle of the night heart pounding anxiety is for me my biggest sign of low estrogen. I will experience that during the day as well. Once my estrogen is increased, those episodes decrease significantly.

Re: Are these menopausal symptoms??

I wondered if I was experiencing something due to estrogen - just didn't know if it was a dip or spike. Definitely something to discus w Dr.

Thank you for replying.

Re: Are these menopausal symptoms??

There are some great articles about menopause under the articles section that can answer many of your questions. It is not uncommon for your ovaries to shut down for awhile after surgery so it could be menopause signs.

Thank you Tracy. I'll take a look and see what I can find. I did not think this would be happening - but it is - jury is out re its permanancy :-)
