I know for me it's Fibromyalgia...

Sounds to me like a hormonal thing {{{{{{Gidge}}}}}} I know when I was not taking any estrogen, my joints were really bad. Currently my legs/hips and ankles are so sore

Do you think its time for a new hrt for you?! You should take a peek over in the jungle..there are so many women there with sore joints. It seems to be a common thread amongst us post-op ladies!

Are you using any progesterone?

I'm sorry you are experiencing so much pain my dear....'S

Hey Jude, thanx for the response

I am taking the birth control pill for hrt, I can't tolerate the bio-identicals (patch, gel, estrace, tri-est) as they are all derived from soy and I'm allergic to it! The bc pill has synthetic estrogen as well as progesterone.......I had to reduce my dosage about 6mths ago because my blood pressure was up and I was having wicked headaches every single taking more is out of the question!

sure hope it's not hormonal, or if it is it's a passing's like a headache in your legs and feet......boom boom boom that's what it feels like!

Perhaps your dose may need a slight adjustment. I have found that over time I had to do a wee bit of tinkering with my doseage. Also, have you been under any kind of stress? Stress can cause the hormones to go whacko.

Sending my daily and for you! Sorry I'm late but I've been stuffing my face and am extremely uncomfortable now.

It's the Fibro for me too. I remember last year when several of us had this same complaint, it was how my Fibro seemed to have started then moved to the rest of my body. I'm sorry you are having so much pain

Hey Gidge!

I'm sorry your having that achey feeling! I also go through that i'm on the couch at like 6 pm! I can't figure it out, I take IB prophrin for it and it seems to help. And to top things off i'm so tired mmmm! My dr put me on Loestrin1.5/30 to help out with the endo for now, i know its not a cure but it seems to help with the pain! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving! It seems to me alot of our problems are hormonal! Hey sister take care and i love ya!

Hey Gidge,

Just a thought, but are you still taking an anti-inflam? If so, perhaps you need to try a different one....sometimes our bodies can build up a tolerance. If not, try taking one to see if it helps

Perhaps you should try a low dose of Premarin, as well as some progesterone? That's what I'm on now. Are they not synthetic? Sorry, I'm really just now learning more in the jungle It sounds like you should have your levels checked eh?

**Colette** I hope you are doing better dear.

Sending you lots of 'S &

thanx for the replies girls

Jude, I have tried Premarin, it gave me bigtime headaches, it is derived from pregnant mares urine , so I guess it is synthetic in some ways.

I'm going to wait and see maybe this is a backlash hormonal thing from the surgery......or maybe it's this fibro mother keeps going on and on about how I have all the symptoms of fibro or lupus......who knows.

it's the weekend which means I can pace myself and not be in agony or exhausted, I sure wish I could do that the rest of the week! Big 's to you girls, I don't know what I would do without y'all!

Maybe it would be a good idea to see a Rheumy. So many of us have similiar symptoms and look how many of us have been DX with Fibro Just a thought...
I hope your feeling better today
