    Hi, i had this too, my doctor suggested I take calcium but I also took a good quality glucosamine with MSM. Also, fish oil helps.

    I was going threw this pain in my lower back and right leg . Because it only got worse I had my pain specialist order x rays only to find out that I have arthritis in my back and right leg. So as a precaution have your Dr order x rays because what I thought was Peri symptoms turned out to be arthritis

    Yes, I'm right there with you Wendy. I'm pretty achy and stiff especially in the mornings. Menopausal women experience this. You can google menopausal astralgia. I take fish oil for inflammation, Vitamin D3, magnesium, and MSM. I'm guessing I'd be way worse without them. I wish I had my old self back.

    Hi Wendy

    I know exactly what you mean. I also get this. I had a forced hysterectomy last year and the pain in my joints is something else. I can barely move at times and feel as though I'm 80. I'm 46.

    I went onto HRT and it improved. I'm now on citalopram, an antidepressant which apparently is the new way to treat menopause symptoms. Go to your dr and get it sorted.

    I'm still exhausted, my memory is shot to pieces, getting no sleep and I simply have a 'Cant be bothered' attitude. I also put on a load of weight. I've recently lost over a stone, but it was bloody hard work!!

    Good luck! X

    Yes it's horrible isn't it?! Joint pain is THE problem for me. I have most of the other meno problems under control, but the joint pain is something else.

    I have had blood tests for RA, Lupus etc - all negative. They can tell me what it is NOT, but can't say what it is. I have been having Physio and was talking to a new girl recently. I told her what I just said and that I thought it was all hormone related. She said 'yes you are probably right. We are only just scratching the surface of what our hormones are responsible for.' Why don't we hear this from our doctors?
