Menopause Fatigue

Menopause fatigue is an exhaustion that cannot be resolved with more sleep. It can make you feel like your energy has bottomed out. Feeling fatigued is among the top symptoms reported by women in the menopausal transition.

Menopausal fatigue is due in large part to hormone changes and the downstream effects. The levels of estrogen and progesterone are changing all at once and these interact with the endocrine hormones associated with energy from the adrenal and thyroid. This instability can be hard for the body and can lead to crushing menopausal fatigue.

Feeling tired goes hand-in-hand with another common perimenopausal symptom—trouble sleeping. When you’re waking up frequently at night or have trouble falling asleep, it’s little wonder that the next day you feel drained with poor sleep quality.

By understanding what was happening I could be part of the change, not being too afraid to talk about it or seek help. I learned tips for sleeping better, eating differently, exercising that was right for my body, supplements that would make all the difference and recognizing what the symptoms were telling me and then trying the various things that could help not just the symptoms but the underlying cause! My self-worth was plummeting and now I am all about nurturing myself and self-care.
Stasi was a wealth of resources, giving ideas and things to try for symptoms. She asked good questions and had specific suggestions I could try right away. It’s very helpful to feel heard and supported.
