Hi everyone, my concern is around painful hips. I am 50 and have had sciatica years ago and so prone to lower back aches and pains. However, I have really bad pains in the hip and some in my knees. My legs feel really tender. The pain in hip can sometimes feel like a burning sensation. i didn't realise could be menopause related untl finding this forum. I have been diagnosed with a mass on my left ovary which they THINK is a cyst, awaitig MRI scan but thanks to Dr Google, I have convinced myself the hip pain is due to cancer all over me! Also sometiems my tummy feels tender, and I often feel like I am due on a period, even though not had one for 6 months - again, every symptom know I think the worst and can't get things out of my head. Does this sound menopause related?
One thing I have found helped by hot flushes is 300g star flower oil daily - however, bottle only recommends 100g - so I am self medicating a bit but having had a dozen flushes a day and night sweats - they have totally gone.
