    I for sure do!! Your not alone. It's mainly at night for some reason..sometimes not. I started yoga last night in fact (beginners) to see if this will help. I will keep you posted!!

    Yes, since starting the menopause, I get a lot of aches and pains in my joints. Particularly affected are my hips and knees. It is worse when I get up and gets better when I start to move about and walk. I am going to mention it to my GP next time l, but I expect the suggestion will be to stay active and maybe take a vitamin supplement. I am not on HRT and don't want to go down that route.

      Hi Chucki , I have exactly the same problems with my knees, you can hear them crunch a mile off when I bend down its really noisy. I went to the doctor about it and basically said it's wear and tear, lose a little weight and keep active to build the muscles up . I'm not on HRT either, im like a creaky old gate when I get up but after a while I do loosen up, horrible getting older isn't it !

      Hi Lou, yep I get the crunchy knees, particularly going up and down stairs. It can also be a bit painful putting on socks. The only plus side for me is that my once spotty complexion has cleared up a treat. But it is hard getting older and realising that actually those wretched periods did offer some protection! Oh well, must persevere. All the best.

      Agree, I'd love to be five years younger again just for one day would be nice and really enjoy jumping up and down with joy and waking up happy instead of all this rubbish ! Yes we carry on because we have to !

    I used to get the knee crunching in my late 20s for several years. Going up the stairs was sounding like eating chips.

    Now when I go walking my right hip occasionally gives me this sharp pain and I feel as if I'm going to fall. It lasts a couple of seconds but very intense enough to take breath away. I thought I had a fracture.

    Got it xrayed a couple weeks ago and came back as degenerative decline.

    Had a birthday recently and its first time I ever wished I was 10 years older and finished with meno.

    Dear Janice

    Yes i have hip pain on and off in the right hip and leg cramp at night mainly in right leg, i think it seems to help when i take a calcium supplement with magnesium in (when i remember to take it)
