When I first started researching the menopause, I learnt that there are at least 34 symptoms.
And every woman has a different combination of symptoms in varying degrees. I had 32 of the 34 symptoms and for me, the most overwhelming ones were anxiety, night sweats, fatigue and joint pain but for some of you, it may be trouble sleeping, hot flushes, headaches, tender breasts, mood swings, weight gain, dry skin or difficulty concentrating. Every woman’s journey is different; in my case I have never had a hot flush but some of you may have them all the time!
