home / health / menopause / q&a's

I am having hot flashes during the night, my hair is falling out and my iron levels are really low. I am on iron tablets three times a day and have been on them for four months now. I am also getting very forgetful, and when I talk, the wrong words come out. I can’t think straight sometimes. Is all this menopause? I’m 51 and have also gained weight over the last year.

Unfortunately, these can all be symptoms of menopause. However, I would suggest you go back to your doctor and ask for a thyroid test because low thyroid function can cause these symptoms as well, so it is best to check. In the meantime, you could try sage tablets to help with the flashes. Liquid Magnesium may help with relaxation.
