Electrical Shocks to the Skin: Menopause

Yes, you heard me correctly. I've been getting zaps of electricity on my shoulders and neck...checked google and with my chiropractor, a symptom of menopause. Also you might feel like bugs are crawling under your skin, another wonderful symptom.

Thank goodness for menopause support herbs by Pure Encapsulations. Symptoms are alleviated, so per the instructions, I will take 3 weeks on, and then take a break.

It's a very uncomfortable feeling for sure. I thought I had shingles! It's weird, I turned 49 and I am definitely going into full blown menopause. Heavy duty hot flashes, irregular periods the whole nine yards.

Poor women! Monthly periods, we bear children, perimenopause and menopause. We should be worshipped as saints!

maybe it's bedbugs

My chiropractor and I joked about that since there is a national epidemic of bed bugs!!!

I get that, too.

I don't like it, but it hasn't been so bad that I've needed to address it. It does make me want to rip all my clothes off and scratch, however... The hot flashes make me want to rip my clothes off, too. I sense a trend here.

My mom assures me it will continue to get worse over the next few years.

Oh, goodie.

I don't get the electric shocks but do get the itches sometimes. Drives me crazy! Hot flashes, too - but only if I am idle (like sitting in a meeting), and at night.

I am 56 and had a complete hysterectomy 3 1/2 years ago. The hot flashes started about 6 weeks post surgery and have continued, though they are not too bad. I asked my (now 87 year old) mom how long her hot flashes lasted and she said, "Oh I think they stopped a year or two ago." GREAT!

If it cheers anybody up, I had no menopausal symptoms whatsoever so maybe they aren't guaranteed.

My mother had nothing either, so maybe it's hereditary but expectations might play a role, so keep that in mind. I don't really know what a hot flash is but I guess I'd know if I had one.

I had one hot flash.

It felt like someone had made a voodoo doll of me and threw it into a fire.

Lasted about 30 seconds.

That was it. Thank the goddesses.

Itchiness...hmmmm I got this arm rash which I've never had before. It's going away. Somehow I think it's corn dust from peeling off the husk...or stress, which I won't go on a venting jag.

My rare 5 min. hot flash..usually early in morning lying in bed. It feels like a internal blush in the face.

Then gone.
