    Hi Karen. Yes I definitely have the achy joints for sure and you know they get worse for me as soon as it gets cold in the fall and definitely worse with peri/meno, I can go all summer long without a flare up but as soon as rainy weather and cold damp days set in, there go the flare ups.. And I was tested for rheumatoid arthritis and my antibodies were way off the charts like 1300 and suppose to only be between 1 and 12 so I have the ra... Well hope your feeling better soon😌

    I am on a low dose HRT tablets and I have not had much problems for a while but last week every bit of my body aches especially my legs and it feels like I have been punched in the stomach repeatedly.  I am also feeling hot or cold and feeling miserable
