Have all your joints gotten loose?

I swear, my joints have gotten so loose, since I don't have estrogen anymore. My knees especially. They're always going out on me.

Mine have gotten more painful. But then again it could be arthritis. Knees only. Everything else seems OK.

RE: Have all your joints gotten loose?

Catherine, are you exercising? Maybe the muscles just need strengthening.

RE: Have all your joints gotten loose?

Thanks Cathy and Jenn,
I do have some osteoarthritis, but I'm sure I should be exercising more. My problem is that I have so much fatigue all the time, it's hard to make myself do it. Then I go work in the chicken coop or the garden, and probably expect too much out of my muscles/ligaments, etc.
I'll try to exercise more......
