I have all the normal menopause symptoms,not flashes, night sweats, weight gain, (I exercise daily and eat right) weight gain DOES happen!!! My doctor put me on thyroid meds because when perimeno started,my thyroid went to borderline low. At night my hands go numb to the point of being painful and waking me up..then my hands are sore all day. I've been trying to sleep sitting up, (like I sleep anyway) I've read that parenthesis is a menopause
symptom,but not many have mentioned it. Anyone else have this?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are right. Paresthesia during menopause is not common but can occur.Skin problems during the menopause are linked to hormonal changes in the body. Women may experience dry skin; oily skin; itchy skin (pruritis); pins and needles or tingling or pricking sensations (paresthesia) and for some a sensation described as like having insects crawling over the skin (formication).However, a screening for diabetes is necessary here.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
