Aches and Pains
Hello Ladies!

I am wondering - does anyone else seem to get random aches and pains in their joints? I have been experiencing foot, hand, and back aches and pains lately. I just had a physical and blood work and other than my total protein level being low, I am fine. Just seem to have these aches and pains every once in a while and wondered if it could be part of peri. I am on a low dose pill, which has worked great for me. My feet have been bothering me also lately, expecially in the morning. I am only 43 so I hate to think it is "old age" creeping in!

hello mary
since my peri symptoms started to get bad in feb I have had aches and pains in many of my joints - the elbows, feet, cramping in legs, aching shoulders and neck and low back. I have never suffered from aches and pains so bad and as I am still having periods (erratic but still coming) the aches and pains are worse just before and during . I have stiffness in turning my head all the time as well. I am not even 41 yet! Its such a pain.


p.s my sister just started peri and she has been having back pain - she is two years older than me. Our mum had an early meno so it is definitely related.

Re: Aches and Pains
Aches and pains! One of the many, many symptoms we get to deal with. The worst of your list for me have been the leg cramps. For a while, it was everynight and some were so bad that they actually left my leg very sore. Besides the bio homones, I eat yogurt everyday (get the calcium, and I hate milk) and take magnisum. One of the three or all combined have helped my leg cramps considerably.
