Hi Ladies,I have suddenly hit full on menopause symptoms at 57!

Has anyone any experience of whether HRT has helped both menopausal hot flushes and had any impact on Fibro either in a positive or negative way.

I could do without this LOL but i guess it was inevitable..somehow it starting so late in life i thought it wasn't going to happen to me.Joking:)

My grandma and mum started very early in there 40s. Mu. Said HRT made her worse.said it didn't help the hot flushes one bit.
But everyone's different.
I have hot flushes all the time,god I hate them.they keep telling me I'm not going through pre meno but I beg t differ.
My poor mu. Went ten year.so hope I don't.

Yes Forgetmenot..its minor in comparison to fibro but wooh hoo when they say hot flushes they really are! Like a furnace that spreads up and over your body like someone put you in a bonfire and a swimming pool all at the same time LOL.

Sometimes they come every ten minutes..especially if im eating or am stressed because of the pain...I've loved being a girl all my life...but bearing in mind fibro hits 90% females and all the other lovely girls stuff we have to go through..i think next time i'll come back as a cat! :)

LOL teehee i picture you outside in your pj's begging for a frosty morning or snow!

I nearly said a man but i'm kinda off men these days! They've lost their appeal so not only don't i fancy one i don't fancy being one!!

My cats never gave me any worries just unconditional love and cuddles!!!
