    I am sorry she gets so angry - she needs to be so grateful for a husband who cares so much - so many men are so opposite to you - bless you - some women go thru hormone changes with aches and pains every where until they can hardly handle it any more - some women never suffer much and others go thru torcher - has she seen a dr about her issues - there are Meds out there that help - sometimes changes in diet helpsĀ

    If she has brusitis she needs to go to a doctor for a cortisone shot. Without knowing the specifics of your wife's age, and medical history it's hard to assess why she's complaining.

    Yes this really happens to us women who have peri/meno issues! Our hormones are shifting to cause many aches and pains to our body because our body doesn't know how to react to the changes / shifting! So please bare with her . My husband gets tired of hearing me over and over about my aches and pains! But then he feels bad because he knows I'm not usually like this. It's been 3years for me, I'm 43yo. How old is your wife? I started early. Been to Drs many times since the beginning and the ER 8times in the past years . It's a horrible transition for some of us but i know there's hope! As I'm writing this I'm also in agonizing pain. From my neck to my back and everywhere else. It's no joke! Pray for us ! 🙏🏼

    Hi Benjamin, first of all you are a star for caring! I'm also very lucky to have a husband who cares - he has issues of his own and we often have a whinge session in the morning, 'how are you?' 'Awful, how are you?'

    Your wife really can't help it, she doesn't want to feel that way, nobody does. Hormones are very powerful regulators and when they start acting up they can be devastating.

    I am having problems with both shoulders, my neck and right foot - all old injury sites. It all started with the menopause. The doctors can tell me what it is NOT, but can't say what it is. When I mention hormones/meno they say 'oh I don't think so.'

    Diet does help, no added sugar, less simple carbs (bread and pastries) no 'fat free' or trans fats, lots of fresh veg and grass-fed meat and dairy all helped me with meno symptoms (and I lost weight!) Just the tendonitis to fix now!

    The bursitis needs seeing to. Cortisone is one treatment but not the only one. My OH has septic bursitis in his left elbow and we think the doc is not treating it as serious as it can be. Hope you have better luck.

    A while back my OH treated me to a back massage at a local beauty salon. It did me a power of good and made me feel a new woman (for a while) Part of the feel-good factor was that he cared enough to do it.

    It seems like your already doing a great job at being at Husband! My husband is really wonderful and it helps so much! I have the aches down my right leg..especially at night. It helps to rub castor oil after hot shower and some essential oils. It still hurts but it helps. Also, changes in diet and less stress. It's still there but it does help.

      well she's not going anywhere Benjamin, just going through changes, terrible as they might be.  She'll be back to her old self, might take a while but improves as she goes through it.  We are all on the same journey here and looking forward to being through the transition.  hang on in there, you're doing great for her and yourself!!
