I am 56 and four years post menopausal.
Now here's my question I read the forum every day and the amount of illnesses that seem to be put down to peri/menopause is incredible from a sore wee toe to serious problems.
I agree with the anxiety/depression side of things as hormones are associated with the brain.
I have sore parts of my body but I put it down to being grossly overweight and not moving as often as I should, if I have digestive problems I put that down to I've ate something that doesn't agree with me like the previous forty years of my life.
There have been women on here in the past few days that say they feeling pins and needles and numbness on their faces and other women are saying this is menopause, these types of problems should be checked by a professional not diagnosed by all of us.
I have been on here asking for advice on post menopausal bleeding because there are many women that have went through this and they can clearly give me advice but I certainly wouldn't ask for advice on something as serious as numbness or tingling as this is a doctor's job.
I know that someone will have a different view of this but alas this is life and everyone is entitled to an opinion.
