    Yes i get that too. Not necessarily radiating down the spine to the lower back but I do get it in the neck, shoulders and out to the left arm all the way down the arm. I heard magnesium is good for aches. Hope you're feeling well soon.

     Hi Sandra, do you spend a lot of time at the computer? My father is a massage therapist and when the neck and shoulders are tight and it goes down to the back it is often the cause of headaches. I've had that trouble many times here and there. And menopause seems to make it worse. Can i recommend a good masseuse? Look for one that works on the pressure points and triggerpoints and you'll get the massage that you need to get rid of it in a day or two.

      I was having daily headaches and I wondered if it was related to the time I spent on the computer. I was spending probably two hours a day just looking at Pinterest, reading articles, blogs, etc. I have cut down my computer time immensely and guess what? Hardly any headaches at all.

    Yes Sandra I get that too. I do have problems with my neck and right shoulder, through past injuries and accidents. But they have got much worse and more regular with menopause. HRT and an excellent young Physiotherapist are both helping, just a shame I had to go private ( I finally have a NHS appointment - for the end of October!)

    Get yourself checked out just to put your mind at ease. But don't worry, a lot of us are going through the same thing.
