50, in menopause, and body went to hell.....

love2garden22April 1, 2007

I turned 50 and stopped having my periods around 7 months ago. (I'm really hoping I won't "relapse" either) But it seems my body in general is going screwy. I get tired easily, my arms and hands have been numby for 2 months now (but seem to be coming back now), my joints ache especially my back, oh yeah, I seem to have started to develop a small hunch back (hubby calls me quasi). Has anyone else gone through any of this? Will my ship right itself soon? ANY RESPONSE would be appreciated! Thanks!

get a bone density test...at the onset of menopause we start loosing bone. i'm sure you seen the ads for the once a month pill, and simple things as light-weight lifting...

don't let it go! you sure don't want to risk a fall and break a hip...
