More Menopause Signs

Sleep Problems
Sleep problems are another common symptom of menopause. You might start having trouble getting a good night's sleep. Maybe you can't fall asleep easily, or you wake up too early. Night sweats might wake you up. Or you might have trouble falling back to sleep if you wake up during the night.
 
Mood Changes
Other possible menopause symptoms include mood changes. You might find yourself more moody, irritable, or depressed around the time of menopause. It's not clear why this happens -- or if there's a connection between changes in estrogen levels and emotions. It's possible that stress, family changes (such as growing children or aging parents), or always feeling tired could be causing these mood changes.
 
Changes in Your Body
You might notice your body is changing. Your waist could get larger. You could lose muscle and gain fat. Your skin could get thinner. Your hair could get thinner, or you may start losing your hair. You might have memory problems, and your joints and muscles could feel stiff and achy. Are these menopause symptoms due to having less estrogen or are they just related to growing older? No one knows for sure.
