Brief Answer:
HRT might help

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

Symptoms you have mentioned appear during menopausal transition. This happens mainly due to estrogen hormone deficiency.

You need to start hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to improve the side effects of this menopausal transition.

You are likely to see improvement with this.

Let me know if you need any more clarification.
