I have had hip and lower back pain, on and off, for a few months now. I've only just discovered that this can be associated with the Peri-menopause. I have other symptoms that could be menopausal; I suffer from anxiety, mild depression, awful fatigue, and a lack of concentration. My periods are still regular though, despite a brown-coloured discharge for day between periods last month. I have been to the doctors with the hip/back pain but he just diagnosed low iron and put me on 200mg a day. Does this sound like the Peri-menopause to you? If so, what do you recommend?

Do you have questions? Please feel free to ask.
