My periods are still regular, albeit quite heavy, but recently I've been experiencing overwhelming fatigue and, even after a good night's sleep, I often sleep for 5 or 6 hours during the day. I cannot even get up for many hours after. I also suffer from fibromyalgia and arthritis, for which I take strong painkillers. It's normal for me to be tired for some of the day, but for the last few weeks this fatigue has been extreme and debilitating. Could this be a sign of the menopause?
