Perimenopause and pains

Posted , 9 users are following.

I’m 45 and we’ll into Perimenopause. I noticed I’ve been getting a lot of tendonitis and pains here and there in my body, and a stiff neck 

Anyone have this ? Do you think it’s low estrogen?

    Hi Aberzerk72, don't get me started! I have pain in different places on different days: pain in back an shoulders, upper chest muscles and a stiff neck. Or pain in my upper abdomen - sort of muscle cramp (that goes into my chest and convinces me it's heart-related). Or cramp odd, shivery feelings in my arms and legs and weak, cold extremities that go stiff. That's all besides the dizziness!!! Apparently, my GP says it is hormonal. It's horrible but laughable when I see it written down like this. This is probably the only place people will understand. I do hope you get relief soon. X

    Hi Aberzerk72

    Your not alone. I have pains in my wrist, thumb and I am off work today because I can’t lift my left arm it hurts so much. I don’t fancy HRT so i’m Hoping it will pass sooner rather than later.

    I've had a stiff neck for a couple weeks which I thought was due to stress.  My elbow aches at times which I could overuse.  At 48 I'm sure it's arthritis.  So I try to get to the pool as much as i can.   Trying ACV everyday to see if that helps.

      I am taking b12 sublingually. Average was 200-1100 and I was at 230. Went back to rheumy who said if numbers don’t raise I’ll need shots.

      I take mg for tendons.

      So hoping it’s just my low estrogen. I did excessive exercise for years so hoping it’s nothing more major

      Thanks smile

    Hi Aberzerk7, i am in peri and have had a sore neck since june. I am currently having physio but it does not seem to help. I can move my neck in every direction but my muscles are just so tight. I have tried yoga, heat pads, heat rubs, nothing helps.
