    Would i be mean if I said, "Welcome to the club"

    Yes indeed its a big symptom that ive heard and experience periodically myself. Its like youve developed fibromyalgia overnight.

    Do not be concerned, its just the menopause..aches pains, trying to go through the changes..

    I wish i had another answer, but its just what it is.

    xx

      lol no your not been mean. But it's bloody awful waking up every morning with joints seizing up and in pain. I am using tiger balm, which does help but it's a nightmare xx

    Try bedtime and morning yoga stretches, on you tube. Only 5 or 10 mins. They help to keep your joints from seizing up. You can even do them in bed! Bonus!

    Yes Karen, all part of the menopause, it seems there are so many different symptoms we get. One goes another appears ? I've had those symptoms often they weren't all the time would come & go. I coped well with many symptoms ... then hot sweats & anxiety Hrt put a stop to this thank goodness.

    Yes, the worst part is perimenopause when your hormones are fluctuating.  I got very sore feet and elbows.  I'm post menopausal now, and my feet still feel achy unfortunately.
