    Hi Tessa,

    I'm about to go for my hysterectomy  and I don't know if it's any consolation but I am 51 not quite in menopause yet and I have aching muscles, joints and quite a dry mouth a lot of the time.

    No itching of the skin or dry eyes though,  maybe it's a bit of natural ageing, our bodies do do weird things.

    I hope it helps

    It may be unrelated to woman's organs and hormones. I would go to a Rheumatologist. It could be an auto-immune problem. Sounds like Sjogrens Syndrome.
