New to this forum. I turned 38 in the summer, but recently noticed a couple of things: Until recently, prior to getting my period, I would experience breast tenderness (they would also grow in size), and upon getting my period, they would last at least 5 days. As of this past fall, and currently going through a lot of stress, prior to my periods, the breast tenderness has gone away and my periods are irregular (lasting only a fews days and they aren't as heavy).
Yesterday, I was at a neighbour's condo and noticed immediately upon walking in that the temperature was too high/hot and she agreed. After standing and talking for a while, I told her that I needed air (because it was too warm in her apartment and I was sweating) and had to get a glass of water. I was going to pass out if I stayed any longer and I began to feel my knees buckle. When I got back to my condo, I barely made it through the door before throwing up a little in my washroom.
Same thing happened to me a year ago (a day after my period started) when I was out shopping. I got hot, clammy, took my coat off, and before I knew it, my knees buckled and I collapsed. At this point, I had a heavy period.
Have any of you experienced any of this before? Any ideas?
