Hi all, I'm writing this in the hope of some advice & out of frustration. I'm living with Lupus (SLE) & other health conditions (APS, Rayneuds, Neuralgia, Ischemia). Today, I received a voice message from a locum GP that my hormones are slightly raised so I may be menopausal (at the age of 40). I've been having night sweats for over 2yrs (on & off) & no periods for about 6mths. I'm planning to see my GP (who knows my medical history). I'm still anaemic (9 mths). It's around this cold season time that I start having flare ups, but so far its not kicked in. I'm hoping the locum GP was wrong (wouldn't be the 1st time) as I raised my concerns about early menopause to my usual GP & that the locus didn't read my medical history properly or that hormone changes are linked to the Anaemia. I could scream right about now. These symptoms are never ending & I know that there is a high possibility that I'm infertile due to the Cyclophosphamide treatment I had last yr. I've been staying positive but at the moment I'm frustrated. Any advice welcome!
