Aches and pains

Posted , 7 users are following.

Does anyone suffer with joint pain I have been going through the menopause for around 2 years and all the usual symptoms. About 3 months ago I started to wake up in the morning with painful hands and feet which are very stiff, after about half an hour this wears off but will niggle through the day if I'm not moving around...I have had blood tests not arthritis

    It's strange but sometimes certain food gives me joint pains now in perimenopause. (This phase in my life has made me very sensitive to foods.)

    I get joint pain, especially in the knees, if I have milk, very good chocolate, and for a little while it was a certain probiotic I was taking. Have you added any new foods?

      You know I never thought of that but now that you mention it everytime I start eating dairy and sweets my aches are getting worst!!! For me also when I'm stressing and worried my entire body is aching so bad...

      Dairy is a big culprit for me. If I sneak a bag of M&Ms I am aching for days. I sit down and the excruciating pain in my knees keeps me there.  

      But even when I am good about what I eat, there are times when I just feel like I have body aches like the flu. Especially just before my period.

    Yes I'm experiencing that now. Very achy joints and I thinks it's from to much sugar/carbs! But so if I stay in one position for a long time I feel the pains! Having back pains everyday in the mid back area. I know it's part of hormonal issues!

    For me it was an estrogen issue.  It took all the pain away.
