In brief: Perimenopausal?

You may be perimenopausal.
Adrenal stress/fatigue may also play a role. You need your hormone levels checked to rule out other problems that can affect your periods as well. Neurotransmitter (chemical messengers in the brain) testing should also be done. Sleep deprivation can cause the symptoms you are describing. The average adult needs 7 hours per night.
