I'm new to this community and to the world of peri-menopause. This may sound weird but I feel much the same as I did with post-partum depression (depressed, anxious, not sleeping) except that I am sweating all the time now. I was getting down around Christmas time and seemed to improved a little but last Thursday night, for the first time in years, I woke up abruptly in the middle of the night. I was hot, but didn't think about hot flashes. I haven't slept a full night since, I'm not that hungry (very strange for me), I'm thirsty all the time and I just sweat, sweat, sweat! My family doc has put me on Effexor and I'm already on gabapentin for something else -- I guess I just have to wait and see if the Effexor helps. Has anyone else had an experience like this?
