?So my Mum has been going through menopause for a while i suppose now, and this past few months seem to be her hardest with the most typical symptoms, such as really bad hot flusehes, sleep disturbances and moods and such.
?Over the weekend though, she wasn't feeling great. she was really tired, said her legs felt like jelly, and she just felt lethargic, she also felt like she was getting a bit of cold/headache. She was also having like a weird occasional feeling in both her arms, she said it didn't feel so much like pain but sort of a weird feeling.
?of course, she was concerned it was heart-related so went to the doctors yesterday, although she was feeling a lot better generally. Apparently the doctor was very thorough and tested her blood pressure and said it was fine and she didn't now what else it could be. She is testing her cholesterol next week too.
?It put my mind at rest a little, but i'm starting to really worry because reading up on women's symptoms on heart probelms is really scary and it mentions things like pains in both arms which can appear early on before having an attack.
?Although she wasnt feeling good at the weekend, bear in mind I've also come down with a cold and haven't had any energy at the weekend, just not as bad as my mum, so it could be something we both picked up. And in terms of her menopause a lot of this seems to link to it and be symptoms of potential menopause, especially since the doctor said she was fine. However, I'm just curious about the feeling in her arms she gets. she said she thinks it started after we played tennis and golf on holiday about three weeks ago, becuase we don't usually play sports, that may have caused it.
?Basically wondering if any of you lovely ladies would say that you've experienced this? Have menoupause ever made your arms hurt or anything? thanks for reading, despite the fact shes practically feeling all better now, i'm still a nervous wreck
