Menopause aches and pains are have started to rule my life | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MENOPAUSE symptoms have begun to rule my life and I don’t know how much more I can take.

I’m 50 and for the past few months I have been in complete agony with muscle and joint pains.

When the menopause first started two years ago, I barely felt any different – and often wondered how I’d got off so lightly.

But now I feel like I’m making up for lost time.

My body constantly aches all over, and my bones have become completely stiff.

I used to be so active and did everything I could to look after my health, But now I often struggle to get out of bed and find the simplest of tasks too much.

The symptoms are overwhelming and not knowing when they’ll end is torturous. I feel hopeless.

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m sorry to hear your symptoms are affecting your quality of life.

Many women experience debilitating joint and muscle pain and stiffness during menopause, due to their declining hormone levels.

It would be best for you to talk to your GP, who can advise on treatments or refer you to a specialist.

You can also get help at menopausematters.co.uk.
