    Hi Michelle, I know exactly what you mean regards the pains, my neck, arms and back are bad today and as you say I feel older than my 50 yrs. I don't suffer a great deal with acid and not had a migraine for a while . I sometimes feel like screaming as I feel nobody else my age is as bad as I am so I'm very grateful for this group as I thought I was going mad. I also struggle to convince myself that I haven't got something like the big C as I feel so unwell most days . Hugs to you😕

    Hi Michelle,

    ​I know exactly how you feel!  It's been all down hill for me since I turned 50! Plus I came off HRT after using it for 3.5 years!  I've put weight on, feel sluggish and lethargic.  Can't seem to lose weight despite trying but now given up!  Mood swings a good week or so before a period and the periods pains and back ache are horrendous.....I get all these symptoms at least a week or more before I actually start!!  I've chronic back ache and been moody these last few days but I'm not due a period until next Monday.  Maybe it will start earlier but I've been quite regular for some time now.

    ​I've also started with acid reflux but it's not really bad thank goodness.  My body aches a lot these days.  I had a long walk with my dogs today and I was shattered and ached by the time I got home.  I feel like 90 not 50!!!

    ​How long do we put up with all this rubbish??  Who knows!!  I'm due to see my gyne again on Friday and I didn't think much of her advice when I last saw her 3 months ago.  Tells me I'm NOT in peri as I'm having regular periods.  Well she should try putting up with MY symptoms!!  I know I'm not ovulating anymore as I could always tell when I ovulated.  But hey, she's just a Consultant what does she know about my body!!! :0

    ​Hang in there, we are all here for each other on this forum :-)

    winkso sorry Michelle, had horrendous day myself, I'm a bit further on than you, no periods but I have developed other awful symptoms which I am sure are connected with the change.

    I find it incredible that there doesn't seem to be a genuine medical outreach tp help with such a debilitating syndrome.........................

    this has to be the worst time in my life and I feel so alone, does anybody really take this seriously in the medical profession??

      I don't think they do take it serious, they just expect you get on with it. I think unless you go in to your gp screaming you get nowhere which is awful. I have never felt so bad for so long xx

      me too, just think (infact) I can't believe it but I used to go hiking 3 times a week for 3 hours (fell walking)....................................eek

      I now find it hard to get through my work day, I ache all over, calves, neck

      I decided to cut the trees in my garden over the weekend and I'm sure that's what started the hey fever symptoms

      and the worst is not knowing exactly how long this is going to last

      Yes I have always been very active, we have 2 dogs that need walking but most days this is done by my hubby as I am in so much pain and am to tired. I feel so useless at minute. I feel so much older than I feel I should at 50. I don't feel I can make any plans as I don't know how well I am going to be and with bleeding most of time I can't go far 😕
