aches and pains and tiredness

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had a hysterectomy total 12 months ago, I soon started with aches and pains all over my body, really tired and irritable, I do have stress depression anyway so this is not the reason as that is being treated. Initially I was super women no replacement therapy going cold turkey giving into the hot sweats several times a day, not sleeping because of the sweats, 8 months in I went to the docs and got something for the sweats and mentioned the aches and pains, decided to give the hrt a go unfortunately 3 months on I have been on and still like a old woman at 48 thought it put a spring in your step?

    Ask your doc to check your Iron Studies. You could be overloading iron now that you are not menstruating. It happened to me. Keep up the hrt.

    Hi Gail

    I will follow your thread with great interest as it nearly all applies to me. I am taking magnesium, omega oils and vitamin b complex regularly, also HRT. I'm aged 46 knocking on 100 at the moment. Also tried

    glucosamine sulphate but seemed to react with my HRT and gave me painful breasts.

    Totally fed up aching this much.

    Just a thought everyone. Are you taking statins for high cholesterol. Some statins cause the most terrible aches and pains in joints and muscles. I was on Simvastatin and could barely get out of bed for the pain. I went to Doctor who listened and changed my statins to Atorvostatin, aches and pains disappeared. Also be careful on the supplements as some of those cause problems.

    I'm not aware of what supplements it is that cause the problems but if you google what you are taking or just read the side effects listed on the products info you should be able to find out what is causing the aches and pains which could if you are older, just be arthritis. Good luck everyone.
