Periods and menopause

I have started the early stages of menopause. I still get my period but I find my whole body gets flu like symptoms (body aches, hot and cold etc) for the whole duration of my period. Why does it do this? I am only 40 now and my mum said she also started menopause at 40.
Thanks

This is not typical of menopause, more likely PMS.
