Re: Headaches , menopause

My own experience with menopause was similar. The headaches were usually on the left side, very painful and exhausting and could last 3 or 4 days to a week at a time. This was during the years leading up to my last period...known as the peri-menopause, and the headaches actually lessened after that. Fluctuating hormones can play havoc In the months leading up to the last period.

If your headaches persist and you're worried pop to your doctor and ask for a blood test to see if your hormones could be the reason.
