Re: Fibro and Menopause....?.HELP!

Hi honey, I'll be 51 on Saturday and have been peri and full on menopausing over a year. I've gone about four months with no period and the hot flashes are a delight. I've had fibro since I can't remember. Officially diagnosed in 2004. I also have a rare but benign colitis so between all three of those I'm a train wreck. Lol. I'm a happy one though, things could be so much worse
I can't answer your question though, sorry can offer my ears to listen and shoulders to cry on or just to hug too..life is good and I'm enjoying this wonderfully annoying metamorphosis into the best part of my life!! xoxo
Peace love and cooling breezes
Sandra

Re: Fibro and Menopause....?.HELP!

I feel for you Monalisa. I'm 52 and have been thru and done with menopause (yea!) for about 5 years. I was a nutcase with mood swings and emotions coming and going as often as the hotflashes. My family walked circles around me in fear that I'd bust another nut on them. Throw in the FM and you can imagine how fun it was. But hey, the good side was I got no menstrual cramps. We're all different and your symptoms and length of time could vary from mine.

It wasn't until I scared myself that I did some proactive reading and a visit to the doc to get my life under control. I went the natural route and used a little progesterone cream, soy isoflavins and black cohosh. Get your hormones checked by your Dr. , that way you'll know what you need to take weather you go natural or bio identical.
I recommend this book: I called it my menopause bible.
The Wisdom of Menopause: Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing During the Change, by Christine Northrup. The Revised Edition .

Good luck to you, it's a fun ride.
