You are a bit young to be perimenopausal, which would fit with your symptoms. Apart from the irregular periods, these symptoms are faily non-specific and may be related to stress, heavy work schedule or chronic illness. I would suggest that you see a GP to start with and you may need to see a gynaecologist to assess the reason for your irregular periods.
