Joint pain and insomnia
Hello. I'm new here and hoping for some help. I'm 55 and just a couple weeks from the magic "1 year" date. I can handle the hot flashes and dry skin. I'm already heavy set and I don't notice any unusual weight gain. My *big* problems are joint pain in my legs, including my ankles and toes, and insomnia. My legs hurt and feel weak anytime I'm on my feet for more than an hour or so and they "ache" at night. I've had my knees xray'd and there were no concerns other than some arthritis. I also find legs are hyper-sensitive now; any pressure of any kind actually hurts, yet bending my joints doesn't hurt at all. Sleep is a long lost friend much of the time. I can't fall asleep and I can't get comfortable. I'm still working so this is a big problem, and I've never functioned well without sufficient sleep. Anyone else gaving these issues? Any advice? Thanks!
