Thanks for the query.

The symptoms you mentioned could be due to hormonal imbalance in the perimenopausal period.
Possibly they will subside soon without the need of medication.
If needed you can go for symptomatic treatment.
If the symptoms persist or increase in severity, if your cycles become more irregular once consult gynecologist and get evaluated.
If she suggests you can go for low dose of hormones to correct the symptoms.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
