sciatica and menopause

Posted , 7 users are following.

Past couple of months I've been having on and off right leg pain, tingling, numbness,also shoulder, neck and arm pain. Fingers, Had an back xray and diagnosed with mild degenarative bone , doctors say right leg pain is sciatica pain. It's on and off, radiates in my lower right abdomen at times. Past few weeks pain went away, now it's starting again. I'm thinking it's menopause related.

    Not sure if this is menopause related. You'd be surprised how many men and women of all age groups deal with this. My husband has for years along with low back muscle tightness. After seeing two orthopedic doctors and a chiropractor, and no relief at all, I did my own searching and ordered him a $100 inversion table. He used it for 5-7 minutes, 3x a day and was completely relieved of all his back troubles within 48 hours. If he ever feels his sciatic nerve tightening up or hurting, he just gets on the inversion table a couple of times and it's better. We've now owned it a couple years. Amazing how no dr. ever mentioned it.

    Hi, I used to have severe pain in my index finger and my elbow. I also had severe leg pain coming from around the hip area, and the Sacroilliac joint which was super painful. X rays etc came up with nothing. I began hrt tablets & within one month all my pain was gone. My estrogen count was so low my GP asked me how I had been managing for so long.

    It would be worth getting your bloods checked & seeing what your estrogen count is. Good luck.
