Patient :I just turned 50 yrs old. I am in menopause (I presume) since I have hot flashes, cold sweats several days a week. My period has always been on time and dependable but now is intermittent. I now have a sharp pain every few minutes on my left lower abdomen and it feel like my female parts (like my ovaries, not my intestine). I also have some major itching sometimes that I never had before and it is all over my body, but there is no rash or visible skin problem... just internal weird itching. Is this normal?
