Just another comment on the red burning eyes. I've had that but it wasn't due to perimenopause. If the drops and nighttime eye ointment don't help, you need to see an ophthalmologist, although a regular doctor (internist or family doctor) could help also. I had to use a drug called Restasis - you may have seen it advertised on TV.
It relieves dry eyes. One drop twice a day - it stings a little but after a while my eyes when back to being clear and not burning so I didn't have to use it anymore.
Good luck with all your symptoms! Let us know how it's going.
