Perimenopause

I am having mood swings (mostly toward anger), difficulty concentrating throughout the day (I feel like I am in a fog), short term memory loss, dry skin and hair. I also experience frequent waking at night if I stay up later than usual. I am more tired than normal whether I sleep well or not. No 'hot flashes' yet, but I do go from cold to warm rather quickly. I am a healthy 49 year old. I take no prescription medication, but I am taking gingko and multivitamin daily.
Any suggestions, particulary for the concentration and memory issues would be wonderful!
