Women can experience a lot of different menopause symptoms when they enter the menopausal stage. Some of these things can really be distressing. They can happen gradually or they can take you by surprise by happening all of a sudden.
In this article, I’m going to discuss a few of the most common symptoms that may be experiencing right now if you’re already menopausal. The first symptoms that we’re going to discuss are light headedness, dizziness, and loss of balance. Dizziness is described as a transient spinning sensation or a feeling of lightheadedness. This can also be described as one’s inability to maintain good balance when standing up or walking. Dizziness is a symptom of a lot of medical conditions. There are certain things that people can do to cope with dizziness. If you think that your dizziness is not associated with menopause, you should see your doctor so that you can determine whether or not it’s a symptom of a serious illness.
Weight gain is another common phenomenon during menopause. This happens because of hormonal changes. Some studies say that weight gain occurs because women are older and their metabolism is gradually slowing down. However, some studies claim that changing hormonal levels are directly associated to weight gain during menopause as well as redistribution of fat. By making significant changes in your diet and doing exercise on a regular basis, you can increase your body’s metabolic rate. Taking natural supplements can also help.
Incontinence that happens during laughing and sneezing or urge incontinence is also a common symptom that a lot of women experience during the menopausal stage. Incontinence is divided into three categories. The first one is stress incontinence, which is described as accidental urination when a person coughs, sneezes, or exerts. The second one is urge incontinence, which is a symptom that’s described to happen when the bladder gets a “mind of its own”, which causes it contract and empty unpredictably even if a person exert conscious efforts to prevent the passage of urine. Last is overflow incontinence, which is described as the complete loss of sensation that you need to urinate. If you’re urinating when you shouldn’t, you should seek medical attention because you can’t sense that your bladder is already full.
Sudden bouts of bloat can also happen during the menopausal stage. These are described as sudden feelings of being puffy bloated that come out of nowhere. You may notice these to be periodic and can increase fluid retention as well as abdominal distention.
Last in line are increasing allergies. A lot of allergies have their basis on hormone reactions. This is especially true for women who experience increasing symptoms as they go through hormonal changes.
