    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.

    This boat`s getting very crowded - it`s about time the medical profession sat up and took more notice.

    So sorry to hear how much you are suffering. You are amongst the greatest bunch of people on this planet and you will be learning so much. I have in the short time i`ve been a member.

    Just one thing - this boards addictive, so should really come with a health warning..... For the eyes!

    Just to let you know, we are not allowed to give URLs (internet site addresses), and a very useful thing is the box at top "Search messages".
    If you want to know about ANYTHING mentioned or if you have a question, tap in the word or words and a whole list will appear of past posts to sift through.
    Punch in your name and all your posts and replies to you by name show too. It`s great, I use this a lot.

    May this be the start of recovery,

    Love Pat.
