      Although they can vary, here are the symptoms I had that led me to believe something was wrong (in order of appearance, over the course of about 5 months):

      AF suddenly got very heavy
      Night waking/insomnia
      Sweating at night (waking up 3-4x per night totally soaked)
      Crying spells
      Flushing during the day (aka "hot flashes": my chest, arms, and face would become suddenly hot, even in a cool room, followed by a backswing, to the point where I would be shivering)
      Very light or No AF for 3 months

      I found this web site helpful: I wish I had seen it prior to my OB visit, I would have had much better questions.

      Hope this helps,
