    That's what I'd like to know! My doctor told me the same thing that I'm not going through peri. I'm with you. Then what is it?! They're so quick to tell you what it isn't but can't tell you what it is! SMH!

    I was going to ask exactly the same question , as mainly it has been my right wrist achy , but today it's been my left . Now as I type this it's both of them ! I feel like an old crock and I'm not 49 until next month . I have had so many different symptoms since last year , my list seems to never ending and I have really thought I am losing it at times . My worst are nausea , loss of appetite sometimes , general anxiety , migraines and just feeling generally under the weather . My memory seems to be getting worse as well , like I sometimes have trouble remembering simple words . Is this all normal ? I'm still having regular periods , but they can be painful and heavy almost like when I was a teenager . A lot of these symptoms came about last summer when my mum became ill and died shortly afterwards , so I don't know if this has intensified them . Hugs to everyone Jane Xxx

      I can take a lot of things but this aching seems to get worse I made my hubby take his knee band off and let me put it on my elbow up my arm it's helping a little why oh why do we have to get so much aches and pains I can deal with the anxiety I just play with my rubber band on my wrist but these aches can take a hike in the nearest lake lol

      So sorry for your loss Jane I've suffered the same in January this year losing my mum

      My symptoms have got worse as well so I think any stress/anxiety, grief or trauma definitely intensifies all of your symptoms

      I can't turn my neck cos of the pain and stiffness, psych doc thinks that I've tensed it so much with anxiety that's causing the problem and I'm also scared to move it now incase it makes the dizziness I have worse

      I've read that other woman in meno have problems with their necks and joints so I don't think it's all due to anxiety

      I hope your getting support Jane and dealing with your grief as well as you can

      Take care of yourself

      Xx

    Yes and yes monique. Sorry I had to laugh about the rubber band ?? No wonder you have a sore wrist snapping that against it

    No seriously I've heard doing this does help distract you from being anxious, might give it a try

    All the best xx

    What an ignorant idiot that doc sounds. Anyone can see with all your symtpoms your are most probably menopausal(past peri) if no periods for 3yrs! I would ring your doc surgery & ask if they have a specialist meno/well woman doc or nurse & make an appt to see them. many surgeries have a specialist doc or nurse now. You should find them more helpful hopefully. xx
