    Unhappy Menopause from hell?

    I'm copying almost perfectly my "arm-wrist-hand" thread:

    I've written on several boards
    here regarding my latest problem. You can get some more info if you search my postings. I am 51, and my last period was Sept 1, 2019 (1 year ago).

    Bottom line is since July 14, I have had various problems that ended up primarily as CONSTANT ARM-THROUGH-FINGERS PAIN, BOTH SIDES.

    Yes, there is more to it, but that is the primary problem I've had for endless weeks, unrelenting.

    It's burning, aching, sometimes in small spots but generally always a presence all the way from neck to fingers.

    I feel leaden, and fatigued in the arms and hands. It's the feeling of weakness when you're sick with a bug, or after you exercise and stop. But I don't "recover".

    Sometimes it actually saps my endurance, and just doing a little movement makes me feel "winded".

    In addition to that I have had chest and back pain, and minor "nausea" often connected along with bad bouts of the arm pain.

    Yes, I've had LOTS of visits and many tests, from ERs and specialists, etc. Still going through it, though never asked gyno.

    In the past, with similar issues and others, I've wondered if I'm going through peri-/menopause, but this is a lulu. It's killing me. It is HORRIBLE. I'm scared and it's very debilitating. I'm afraid to go to the grocery store! It wears me out!

    Has anyone experienced such weirdness with menopause?

    Have you had your thyroid checked?

    Hi. Only TSH, which was normal.
