Early Menopause?
I am 30, had a hysterectomy at 28 and have 2 small children. I periodically have the following symptoms: hot flushes, heart palpatations, moodiness, severe migraines and apparently have a low estrogen count according to recent blood tests. What will help? and is this early menopause?

It could be early menopause. The way to know for sure is to check your FSH and LH levels. Oestrogen is not a good way of diagnosing the menopause.
