I have been on oestrogen only HRT since having a hysterectomy 10 years ago. I have always felt brilliant and led a full and active life. I can't stay on HRT forever (although I would love to) and so I have very gradually reduced the HRT dosage over the years. I am now down to 25 micrograms and I feel terrible. I ache all over and I am so stiff that I feel 90 years old. I can't even put my socks on without experiencing pain! I've had to give up so much that I am feeling old before my time. My doctor has put me on an exercise programme and I walk loads but I'm getting tired very quickly. I am taking Glucosamine and Omega 3.
