Peri menopausal

I am 42 years old. I have had strange symptoms lately and have done some research on the internet - is is possible I could be peri menopausal?

I feel very emotional, something I am normally not. (mood swings, cry at the slightest thing)
I feel hot all the time (esp my face) when the rest of the family are complaining they are cold!!!!!!!!!!
My hair is thinning and my scalp is very dry - patchy sometimes

Please can you advise what I can take? I take a multivitamin and calcium.
