Why do I feel dizzy during my period this month?

Home More advice Health

I am having the most unusual things happening during my period this month.
I hate to move around and when I lay down everything feels all a swirling, like sea sickness or when you twirl around and then fall still. I hate being touched because that makes me feel dizzy as well- being held feels ok, as long as its still.
I often feel clumsy before my period, and sometimes for the first day or two, and this feels a little like an elaborate extension of that.
Whats happening in my body?
Can anyone offer some biological explaination of this dizziness I am feeling?

I am 43, and have noticed a few changes to my normal cycle, like ovulation bleeding, I am contributing those to life changes, (of which I am having a few) but could it be the start of menopause?
