Strange Symptoms

I am a 37 year old woman and have been very healthy all my life. I have suddenly started experiencing drenching night sweats and I am wondering if I could be going through some sort of early menopause. I have also developed very debilitating allergies where I am constantly sneezing, my sinuses are blocked and my eyes are red. I don' t know if these symptoms are connected. I have never had allergies before. I have also gained a large amount of weight around my middle (only) and working out 7 days a week for the last 9 weeks has had no effect. In fact I think I am gaining weight. When I think about the mess I am becoming I start to get tearful. This is NOT me.

It does sound like you may be perimenopausal. A blood test would make this diagnosis. The allergies would not be connected to menopause though.
