    Take Green Lipped Mussels every day - don't buy from H&B they are soooo expensive - get them from the internet.  Everyone I have recommended them to says they are amazing I would not be without them.  A golf friend of mine was in such agony he had to give up completely - 6 weeks later he was leaping like a lamb and has been ever since - 3 years now. If you are a vegatarian then take Devil's claw instead.

    Barbara49965, sooo glad to know I'm not the only one. Yes, I get random aches and pains. Like one day my neck will feel really stiff and sore, next day my left knee will hurt then day after maybe my left arm. I will get tingling in my left hand but temporarily. I take ibuprofen more now than I ever did. Plus I have fibroids and get discomfort from them too. It some ways, I'm glad there is a light at the end of the tunner and I'm getting close to never having a period again but this is hard to go through. It's scary when you start having all these symptoms and have no idea why!

      Hi Nancy, I have just started taking B6 150mg & magnesium 350mg. 

      I also put linseed 1tbsp into my porridge each morning & take nutrition fx which has helped the hot flushes.

      I will give all this a good month & let you know how I'm feeling!

      Its all so unfair having to go through this & doctors really dont know how to help!
