i have 2 strange symptoms that i am unsure if they are peri related or if there is something totally different going on. my sacroiliac joint is constantly inflammed and is sensitive to touch, rubbing, etc. chiropractor told me she could tell it was inflamed. also my eyesight has not just gotten blurrier but I'm much more sensitive to light. Can anyone relate to either of these symptoms???

    I can relate to you eye problem. My eyes have gotten very bad. Light bothers me, I have blurry vision and a bunch of floaters like spider webs.

    I have not seen a chiropractor but my joints have been acting out.

    This sacroiliac pain is how my symptoms started 3 years ago. I felt as though my hip was totally out of line and the pain came from my sac joint. I went to see various chiropractors thinking that I had somehow knocked it out of place. They all said there was inflamation in the joint but did also say that you would of noticed if you had somehow knocked your SI joint out as it takes an awful of pressure. The pain was unbearable. I went to my gp & got an xray - nothing! Eventually Ii was referred to see a consultant physio who deals primarily in hips, backs & knees. He did all the muscle strenght tests & said there was nothing wrong with my muscles. He said its probably my hormones & told me to get blood tests for menopause. He said he sees so many fit & health women come to him & explain that they suddenly cant walk due to hip pains. I got tested, I was in peri but I had not even thought about the menopause. My estrogen levels were on the floor. I had a discussion about hrt & my gp & I agreed I would go on it. After just 2 weeks of being on the hrt tablets (elleste duet conti) I was feeling great. No pain at all, anywhere.

    I'm not saying that hrt is the answer to your problems, but my god, it worked in an instant for me. Go & speak to your doc. Good luck. x
