Hello Ladies,

I am 49, in peri and am on lo loestrin to hopefully level me out.  I am already in quite a few forums with most of you RE: our peri symptoms so here is my newest ache/pain/symptom. For about a week now my shoulders and neck just ache.  Sometimes enough to cause my head to hurt.  I know in our other forums some of us have mentioned that our shoulder and neck are sore and hurt but I don't believe any remedies have come out of it.  So my question is this:  What are you all taking to relieve this pain.  It's as if I worked out my shoulders and neck.  I have stretched, I have massaged with hot water in the shower and nothing.  Any suggestions or remedies that might help.

    Hi i am peri and have been having neck and shoulder pain since June 2017. I have had physio do swimming  yoga and have had several massages nothing has helped. My anxiety had become  a lot worse. I have not done anything for a few days  apart from a heat pad and trying to relax as i feel my anxiety is making it worse. I feel like i have got a know stuck under my left shoulder blade and sometimes the pain goes to my collar bone. I am eager to see if anyone has any solution. I am considering hypnotherapy to help my anxiety and maybe this will allow my muscle neck and shoulder pain to stop. x
