Shoulder pressure

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

A new symptom for me - shoulder pain!

I have experienced every perimenopause symptom going, but this is a first for me.

It almost feels as if someone is pushing down on my shoulders.

Does anyone else have this??

    A few years ago when all of this hit me, that was one of my first symptoms. It felt like I had weights on my upperback/shoulders.

    Later on I developed frozen shoulder, but I don't think the symptoms you are describing is part of that. I'm not sure what it is. Do you have anxiety issues about all this peri?

      yes it feels like a pressure on both shoulders. Didn't last very long, matter of seconds.

      I'm due my period shortly so guessing it's possibly related to that.

      I do get anxiety with the peri which strikes before and during my period.

      Do you suffer with it?

    Hey Dora, frozen shoulder or as Chinese medicine calls it “50's shoulder“ is very common during this time. I had it in my left shoulder, quite bad, but my massage therapist fortunately worked it out in a matter of months. The pain you’re describing doesn’t sound like frozen shoulder though. Google frozen shoulder and see if your symptoms are similar.
