I have yet another question. Since starting peri-meno, are you having hip pain....and especially at night. I'm a side sleeper and I notice when I'm having my worst peri symptoms I get this awful ache in my hip that I toss from side to side.
Anyone else get this? I still can't believe all the symptoms we get with this stuff...it's so fascinating that hormones can cause all these 35 symptoms.
Thank you and have a great rest of the weekend.
You're all a godsend. I'm so glad I have this board to come and ask questions. It gives such relief to read others have similar things and brings peace of mind.
I'm not getting hip pain, but I am getting shoulder pain, just on the side I tend to lie on regularly. I'm doing a series of stretching exercises each morning to counteract it. It always seems to be worse on the nights when I've slept poorly.
I also have the shoulder pain (right shoulder), but I did have the hip pain when I first began having symptoms and did not know that it was related to my hormones. I hope that you get relief so that you can get some sleep .
I am in the process of being tested for perimeno (at 33!), but the more I read these message boards, the more I am certain I am going through this, e.g. depression, abnormally heavy but short periods, severe mood swings, night sweats, etc. Now this...
I also experience hip pain, although I wouldn't necessarily describe it "pain" as I would discomfort. It is a dull pain that radiates through my hips throughout the day and night. I thought it was related to cramps I get in my lower back during PMS (about a week before my period) and it is extremely uncomfortable (making it difficult to sit, stand or lay in one position for long). Does this sound familiar to any of you?
I just had my second FSH test this morning (3rd day) to see what exactly is going on. The more I read, though, the less optimistic I become about my condition. On the other hand, I am also more optimistic about my chances at becoming pregnant after reading these boards. It has really helped.
Glad to hear that I'm not alone. I've been having hip pain for a number of months. Sometimes it bothers me while just sitting, other times while standing and many times laying on my side at night. Gosh, I had no idea that it was possibly connected to menopause.
