Aches and Pains!

Sep 30, 2013 by

Probably the most common symptom that people hear about with menopause are hot flashes, but I’ll tell you that my biggest complaint so far is the aches and pains.  I never hardly had a pain in my life until just a few months ago and I started noticing stiffness . . . I feel like I need an oil can for my hips (makes me think of the Tin Man on Wizard of Oz 🙂 ).

I’ve even changed my mattress out twice and have added a thick mattress pad because my hips hurt so bad.  The mattress pad helps, but I’m still so stiff . . . I feel like an old woman almost over night :-(.  I think it’s just menopause but I have decided to finally go to the doctor to make sure.

I also have the desire now to start learning more about supplements, vitamins, and treatments . . . more so about the supplements and vitamins though because I’ve heard just enough about treatments to be scared . . . more risks.  I intend to keep it simple and hopefully that will make me feel better.
