A 46-year-old female asked:

Can perimenopause cause paresthesias which are felt on the face (tingling) & top of head (dripping)? if so, are there any treatments e.g. hormones?

Maybe: it certainly causes it's hot flashes usually not tingling. Do video consult or see I doctor for more specific valuation of your symptoms

Estrogens: Menopausal symptoms are caused ultimately by estrogen deficiency and the commonest symptom is hot flashes. Your symptoms may be related in some way and if estrogen therapy eradicated them,it would be proof. However your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate,advise and treat you.
