I know there are a million threads on here about the long list of symptoms this horrible menopause throws at you. But I just feel SO old... and doesn't it get you down? I am active and have been careful with what I eat but the list of symptoms just seem to be getting longer and show no sign of leaving! Here are mine:
Weight Gain - Eating less and moving more but still seem to be gaining weight. Trying out intermittent fasting with just staying statically fat!
Joint Pain - At night this is worse when sitting down in the evening and "relaxing". Legs ache whether elevated, crossed or uncrossed. Getting out of the chair is a creaky affair as is getting up in the morning. My shoulders in the morning are so painful. Once I get going these all improve but do you know what Mrs Menopause, we can't keep moving 24 hours a day!
Hair Loss - front of my fringe seems to be disappearing and my parting is really thin showing more scalp as the months go by...
Ovarian Cysts - Had two now and they are a delight.
Stomach Trouble - Bloating, nausea, constipation or the other. Stomach bloats like a balloon as and when it feels like it.
Nausea, Dizziness and Headache- seems to be getting worse especially when the heavy period turns up.
Mood - generally a fed up disposition with little tolerance for anything!
Hot - that's it, not a flush or a wave just hot.
Spots - lovely blind spots that seem to be particularly at home on my chin(s) line.
All the above has been checked out by doctors with no real solutions. I take a bucket of supplements and not keen to go down the HRT route. I'm just moaning on here because I know all you of fab forum followers are probably going through exactly the same!
