muscle and joint pain

I ache all over too, but that's mainly due to me having fibro. The surgeries just added a doubly whammy on me and its taking me a lot longer to recover. Each day is a whole new set of aches and pains for me. I'm only taking progestin right now.

muscle and joint pain

My surgery was exactly five months ago and at about 3-4 months, I started noticing considerable aches in my joints. I am not on any HRT and had read that the reduction of hormones in our bodies can cause joint aches.

My surgeon suggested Advil or some OTC anti-inflamatory. I am taking about 1000 mg of Ibuprofen each morning and evening and it seems to take the aches away.

Best wishes!

Yep! And that is on my list of things to ask the doctor as well. I am not on HRT either. I'll post what she says.

Here's to hoping we all feel better,

Add me to the list of no HRT. So Estrogen is probably the culprit? All I know is, I'm never going to get back in shape if I hurt this bad now. My Lenten "sacrifice" is more of a "to do" - I'm going to do some kind of exercise every day. Even if it's just walking; maybe that'll help. My chiropractor says I have a horrible case of TMJ and that's never happened before. That's another symptom of fibromyaglia ( I hope that's not what this is )!

I was wondering the same thing, my shoulders hurt and my hip joints hurt. The worst thing I'm experiencing is cramping in my lower legs as soon as I lie down to go to sleep. It makes the insomnia even worse. Any ideas on that? PS. also no HRT

My potassium was low, which caused leg cramps. Try eating a banana or two to see if that helps. But if it gets really bad, I would say something to the doctor.

muscle and joint pain

Ladies, i am a breast cancer survivor and I was on tamoxifen for 5 years because my cancer is estrogen receptive. The Tamoxifen cut out the estrogen that feeds the cancer. This lack of estrogen made me achy in my legs, especially the last 2 years while on it. Once I went off, in 2 months I felt years younger. Now, I've had my hysterectomy, the estrogen is gone for good and I am expecting to start feeling how I did when I was on the tamoxifen. Everything you have described is how I used to feel. I will soon start another drug to prevent breast cancer that will make tamoxifen seem like a picnic. My point here is there are breast cancer sites, especially breastcancer.org that you could go to and see what those ladies are doing to help with their pain. I never did anything because I was young and just tried to exercise through it. I like the fish oil idea and may try it. I know that on the B.C. site women talk about controintin and glucosamine (i didn't spell it right) and that it is a big help. Sorry you all have to deal with this pain but I think it is the lack of estrogen and for those of us that can't take hrt we need to find alternatives.l Good luck. Sorry this was so long.
