Decreased estrogen - joint pain!!!

It been 2 years since my last surgery to remove my last ovary. I am 41 years old. My biggest issue that I continue to deal with after all this time is joint pain.

Recently I have decreased my estrogen because of other issues and the joint pain is getting worse. The aggravating part is that my muscles are also stiff and not as "fluid."
Has anyone else experienced this? Any remedies? Thank you!

Re: Joint Pain!!!

Yes, I have been suffering a great deal with this. I had arthritis even before the surgery, so it's just worsened for me. I have talked to my sports medicine doctor, my regular OBGYN, and my GYN-oncologist about this. None of them seem to have any useful answers. The sports medicine doctor did give some explanation, though. He said the joint pain may be more related to soft tissue surrounding the joints (ligaments, tendons, muscles) than the joints themselves.

My best solution was to go to a personal trainer at the gym, explain the surgery and its effects, and ask for a program to help me build back up to normal. For me, most of my pain is in my knees. He gave me some good exercises to build up the supportive tissue around the knees. It took 3-4 weeks of working the exercises and adjusting upwards about once a week, but I have been feeling a lot better. Probably the best things he did for me was having me walk around with the physical therapy bands around my ankles and to do some minor weight lifting with my legs. I'm still not back to running, but I really wasn't supposed to do that with my arthritis anyway. (Still, maybe someday.) I can walk, run on the elliptical, and ride bike without pain now.
