Hypothyroid & perimenopause

Hi all. I have been suffering with low thyroid for a while with ups and down despite medication provided by Mr Peatfield. About a year ago I started suffering the menopause symptoms: low moods, hot sweats, fatigue, muscle soreness, strong headaches, brain fog, weak memory, struggling with falling asleep and sleeping enough (i have 6-7 hrs sleep a night).

I was on HRT for 9 months but exlerienced very heavy period and i have 4 fibroids and not happy overall how i was feeling. Came off it. Put on 6KGs al together and am not a happy bunny. Trying to rest and gentle excercise. I take magnesium twice a day, vit b complex by Nutri, Vit D 5kiu, and now I started using Phytosoya and they have an evening tab for sleeping better with Lemon Balm and more Magnesium.

I still get the symptoms above described which are pretty much interfering with my life as I work for myself and struggling.

Any suggestions for what supplements work for you in Menopause with sweats etc..

Many thanks,

  • In a hurry sorry but quickly, soya not good for thyroid... have you got latest blood test results, with ranges? Have you had b12 FERRITIN FOLATE tested?

    A lot of your symptoms can be hypothyroid and or low b12 etc but it would be a huge help to have a 'full picture' 🙂

    I am well past menopause but still had all the symptoms hot sweats etc and after reading people talking about how it helped them I got some 'Wellsprings Serenity cream ' and at first made me worse but as I reduced dose to a tiny smear sweats 90% improved. Sorry must go
