    Oh Yes, aches & pains & extreme tiredness & like you feel as though legs are swollen. Also like Trevis I find if I sit down too long I seize up so try to potter a bit, can't charge round like I used to without getting a pounding head & dizzy as though blood pressure has shot up !   Absolutely hate this time of life sad

    Hi Lesley, I am 53 and also feel 90!!! i so appresiate everyones comments on here at least we do not feel alone at this awful time we go through.  I started peri when I was 44 and well into post, have every symptom going an absolute utter nightmare, 3 years ago I hit the wall and couldnt even get out of bed it was so horrendous.  Career gone, and havent worked for over 3 years.  At least now I can function but could not take a job or go on holiday, confidence down the pan, anxiety has improved but jumps out every now and then out of nowhere weird!! I have had a wee break fro the imbalance for a few onths but this week it has returned and feeling that I have nothing to give, so tired all the time is it ever going to go away!  From someone who has always worked, always had responsibility and always busy/happy/socialising to absolutely nothing, not going anywhere incase the imbalance hits its scarey & bothers me more than anything & causes huge anxiety its a viscious circle ......sad xx

      Hi trevis

      I felt exactly same I got sudden onset of pain in knees in feb by end of feb I couldn't walk with the pain excruitiating at times even ended up in our A&E dept the pain that bad I'd had an xray at the morning but by tea time I was in floods of tears n that's not me even more so not me to use A&E they checked xray n it was arthritis they advised me see my gp for cortizone injects which I did but didn't help I've since had MRI scans n again shown degenerative changes n arthritis but the pain carried on so I asked for a further referral n saw different consultant who agreed to do an arthoroscopy which found tear in ligement n meniscus on my left knee I'm 2 weeks post op and up until yesterday slight pain but I went out fir the 1st time in months to Liverpool to see the 3 queen ships today I'm suffering with the toothache type pain again so I've rested today hoping it's down to too much walking

      I have never in my life felt like I have since becoming sick with back pain in December sorted that then my knees started the awful anxiety tiredness fatigue sickness insomnia you name it I've had it apart from night sweats I found out after numerous blood tests I had vit d3 deficiency & my hormone lvls were very low so I've been commenced on vit d long term tried HRT but didn't agree with me so citalompram was give to help with anxiety n nauseous n given a sleeping tablet aswell which helps I've also started to take calcium n magnesium with zinc I actually feel more human over the last 4 days which is great becoz since December I've lost 3.5stone n was very low in mood but couldn't explain how I was feeling

      Just hope this knee pain subsides over nxt day or so but how yu explain the aches n discomfort is right I felt my legs were not strong enough to hold me up or unable to walk they were stuff n couldn't bend my knees

      I hope you start to feel better soon xx

      Hi Trevis

      thats awful I feel for you as I suffer with the anxiety as well but touch wood it's been ok for a while but I am in agony with my back and my knee (osteo arithritis) and I can't take a lot for it as my medication for epilepsy interferes with a lot so I have to suffer quietly (well unless I'm moaning in here)!

      fed up with the thick feeling of my legs and strange sensations down my arms, palpations, hot sweats .....I don't think I need to go on

      nice to have your reply

      tale care xx

    Hi - I feel much better now as I take Osteocare by vitibiotics, it has magnesium for the muscle's, D3 for joints, zinc, they are big tablets to swallow, you can get chewable, they have helped so much I wouldnt be without them! You can but them from Boots or Morrisons.  I also take VitB6  for my mood swings & Menopace plus! Hope this helps. Give the tablets a good 1-2 weeks to kick in! biggrin

      Really pleased there helping Caroline, I did forget to take them once & the pain did return, so I never go without them. We can only keep trying & sharing different things especially with the pain as I was at the end of my teather! cheesygrin X

      Hi Ladies - also forgot to say that I use a magnesuim oil spray, which I rub into certain muscles & joints, really helps with my sciatica if its paining me up at night! Works really well & no harm at all, you can even use the spray as an oral hygeine routine??I get mine online from Amazon!
