I am a new subscriber to this group. I started having pain and flu-like body aches at the same time I started menopause and it has been with me since for 5 years now. My first flareup was extreme pain in my right shoulder that was so painful I could not even raise my arm above shoulder height. This lasted for several months. Throughout the past 5 years the tenderspots have shifted from one area to another, very strange. I am now finding it hard to get normal housework done like I used to and having to deal with a foggy brain at work. I am just glad I found these posts to know I am not alone.
