 joeybubbles - Tue Apr 18, 2006 3:48 pm

I am a 45 y.o female who has had ringing in ears, motion sickness feeling and sensation of sunburned skin on arms and jaw for a little over a year. Also, menstruating every 21-26 days, increase in headaches and much worse pms symptoms with bloating and pain. I saw ent and neurologist.
I get frequent cold sores and take valtrex prn and otherwise only take a multivitamin. Only past surgery is c-section.

Mri of brain, auditory canals and spine normal. cbc, bmp, ana, sed rate, serum electrophoresis, crp normal. b12 was 311, cholesterol levels are always very low despite my diet high in fat. total 100, ldl 45, hdl 58 triglycerides 39. Ultrasound of pelvis showed pelvic congestion syndrome.

Family history is alzheimers, osteoporosis, breast ca and one aunt with diabetes.

Could the symptoms of tinnitus and burning skin be related to perimenopause or should I see an endocrinologist

thank you
