    I was 36 when my symptoms started Night sweats, hot flushes, Doctors dismissed my symptoms and put it down to stress. Then my periods became irregular by the time I was 40 periods had stopped My joint pains were horrendous in shoulders to the point I was becoming a pain killer junkie. I had cortisone injections I changed doctors and finally was listened to. I was very reluctant to start HRT and in actual fact find start taking it until o was 45 so 5 years of my doc trying to persuade me, and omg what a difference it made to my joint pains. I do have arthritis in both Shoulders and hips, but some taking my HRT I've gone from pill popping every 4 hours to virtually zero.

      Has your doctor advised that you continue HRT indefinitely, Michelle?

      No nothing has been said about indefdinately. But I went to gynacholgist who also advised me to take the hrt. The problem is there is a risk with breast cancer but I've been told by a few doctors that the studies done on breast cancer and hrt were done on ladies in the 50s when breast cancer is more likely. Also was told the body shouldn't be getting rid of these hormones until into the 50s so hrt isn't a worry for those under 50. Hrt also protects don't quote me but I think they said the lining of the womb. It's definitely made a massive change to my life.

      Hi Michelle, I'm so glad you have a solution to your problem currently. My advice ongoing would be to talk to your consultant about when (and if) you have to come off HRT, as you will benefit from doing it really slowly over as long a period as possible, to avoid a recurrence of your initial symptoms.

    Hello there. I am 59 and had my last period just 18 months ago. I have suffered almost every menopausal symptom imaginable over the past 10 years or so and thought I would be finally be over most of them, however, these past few months I am suffering quite a lot with aches and pains in my legs (not when I'm resting, just when I'm trying to move about) and also lower back pain from time to time. The aches seem to start in my groin and go down my legs.....I have suffered with fibroids in the past but thought they would have shrunk by now. I'm reluctant to go to the doctors as I don't want to be put on HRT and surely I must be nearing the end of all these horrible menopausal symptoms as I will be 60 next year.....Just wondered your thoughts on these horrible leg aches and pains. Thank you

      Hi Julie Back pain can often irritate the nerves to the legs causing pains that could go down to the feet. I would suggest going to see a Chiropractor who can check everything for you and offer treatment if necessary. 10 years is quite a long time to be going through the menopause, have you had regular checks on your thyroid levels, vitamin D and iron? These can all appear mid-life and cause menopause-like symptoms. If not, it is a good idea to ask your doctor to test for them just to rule them out.
