Thank you Sam

      Hi Sam You would need to go and see your doctor about this as only they can advise you on how to go from here, we are not allowed to advise on prescribed drug use, sorry.

    Hi Im on elleste duet for menopause symptoms. My worst symptom is dizziness. Had all my bloods done all ok. Dr thinks the dizziness is caused with the menopause. I also have high BP and I am on Ramapril. Is there anything I can take with the hrt to help me with the dizziness please. Many thanks Sam

      Hi Sam Hopefully the tips above will help with your dizziness but you could try the Menopause Support as well, this is fine with HRT, although it could take about 4 weeks to start showing benefit.

      HI Sam B12 is best taken as part of a vitamin B Complex unless you have been diagnosed with B12 deficiency by your doctor. If you have had a few heavy periods then a short course of Feroglobin should be fine

    I get hot and sweaty and dizziness, it's like my sugar levels have dropped as I want something sweet, this seems to help the symptoms subside. I am 48. Any ideas

      Hi June It is more than likely that this blood sugar yo-yo effect is actually triggering the sweating and dizziness and this is really common in the menopause. The falling hormones can affect your blood sugar control and this can become unbalanced very quickly. Unfortunately, sugar is the worst thing for helping this - having something sweet will make you feel better quickly as it raises up your blood sugar levels but afterwards there will be a swift 'crash' making you feel worse so you have more sugar foods and this can keep repeating. The best thing to do is eat little and often but have protein/fat foods as these will keep your blood sugars stable. Foods such as nuts, seeds, full fat plain yogurt (no sugar!), oatcakes and cheese etc make for good, healthy snacks that will not trigger this response.

      Hi Clare You could try the Menopause Support, this doesn't have the same contraindications as HRT. This is gently known to raise and balance oestrogen so may ease your symptoms. You could also add in the sage tablets as these are specifically for hot flushes and night sweats and usually work quickly. I would suggest one with your evening meal. Check your diet and make sure that you are eating plenty of fresh foods and avoiding high salt and sugar foods and caffeine. Remember to drink lots of plain water as dehydration will make everything worse!

      Hi Bella If the dizziness is being caused by the hormonal changes then the HRT should help, it is difficult to say how long it may take to kick in as this would depend on what dose and type of HRT you are taking. However, stress, low blood sugars and dehydration can cause dizziness too so make susre that you eat little and often and drink lots of water every day. I assume your doctor tested your blood pressure and iron levels as low levels of both could cause dizziness too.

      Hi Bella They may do but fatigue in the menopause can be caused by lots of things such as dehydration, poor diet, too much caffeine/sugar/salt, low thyroid function, low iron or low vitamin D so it is a good idea to get this checked out with your doctor, especially if you have had it a while or it is getting worse.

      Hi Bella The changing hormones can really drain the body of energy which can cause the fatigue. Rest and relaxation is really important to allow the body to re-energise but I realise that this can be very difficult to do, especially if you lead a busy life. You may find taking a good female multivit can help to give you a boost (ask for one at your local healthshop) and make sure that you are eating well to give your body all the nutrients it needs just now. Dehydration and low blood sugars are often part of the problem so remember the plain water every day and eat little and often. This is usually a phase of the menopause but I can't stress enough how important it is to look after yourself well!

      Hi i am choosing to stay off HRT. Dizziness is a nightmare and have been given anti dizziness tablets which seem to be doing the trick. I can handle the rest of the symptoms albiet challenging but the dizziness has been debilitating.

      Hi Anne Shopping is a classic scenario for light headedness. Very often by the time you get to the shops (especially after work) you are likely to be tired and dehydrated. Often, too, the shops are very hot and busy. Before shopping remember to drink lots of water, have a small snack such as a handful of nuts and raisins or a small protein bar and practice slow, deep breathing for a minute or so before you go in, hopefully this will help.

      Hello, Sorry to hear that you are struggling. Dizziness can be a serious condition, particularly if it doesn’t go away after a few days. It can also be caused by factors such as low iron or low blood pressure or too much sugar or caffeine etc. I am not sure what tests the doctor has done or if you have tried other remedies. However, your doctor will be able to confirm if your dizziness is a symptom of the menopause, in which case hormone treatments, such as HRT, might help. Take care

    Hi! I had a dizzy spell 7 days ago,my blood pressure was sky high. I was checked over at hospital,it wasn't a cardiac and my blood pressure came down. I was absolutely fine for 3 days and my dizziness returned. I'm waiting to see if my iron is low. Im 55 and still have periods. Is this normal as I a, feeling quite anxious about this sudden change in my health.

      Hi Helen Yes, this can happen, falling oestrogen can really affect your blood pressure control and sudden changes can trigger dizziness. Acupuncture would probably be really good for this so worth looking into. Remember to drink loads of plain water throughout the day and eat little and often (but not high salt or sugar foods). Both dehydration and low blood sugar levels can cause dizziness too. Low iron is another factor so good that you are getting this checked out. You may find taking a magnesium supplement 200mg once a day can help to reduce your anxiety.

      Hello Janice, Sorry that you are having a difficult time. If you suffer from severe depression, the menopause symptoms can often overlap and vice versa. The doctor may need to review your medication, so make sure that they are aware that you feel menopause symptoms breaking through. Have you had your iron levels, low thyroid or low Vit D levels tested recently, as these can often arise ?
