    Only way to know for sure is to get your hormones tested.  But very likely, some of us have early menopause, 40 here and had peri for the last 4 years.  I had the joint pain and insomnia and much more.

    Hi Tracey

    Welcome to our world.

    46 is a very reasonable time to being the process for certain.

    Many changes are happening for you right now as it is so many of us or which we are here on this forum or support that you will get  smile

    The hot flushes is the declining of the estrogen, just part of the process. IF you can just go with it and not resist it, know in your mind that this is whats happening then you have control right there. Accept it, nothing bad is happening its just miserable..Some women have an easy time (an im jealous of those ladies smile

    other women really truly suffer like yours truly.

    Yeah, my joints, and back ache a LOT in the morning then it slowly dissipates as the morning goes on

    Hang in...

      I have take every supplement known to man and can not pinpoint if any of them helped.

      I think though that if you can take a really good fish oil, this will help, Omega 3's. 

      Im sorry your going through this, i get it.

    Hi Tracey, I have just found out a month ago that I am going through the menopause, from a blood test, I'm on the coil Marena which means that they can't test my estogen levels. My main problem is my memory as it is fuzz, but no hot flushes yet, this might happen soon. I'm 49 and trying to do more excerise and taking vitamin D
