I'm 49 years old and I'm having hot flushes regularly now. I have an ache in my knees, elbows, and neck. I'm also having frequent headaches, which have been plaguing me on and off for nearly a year. My GP has put me on Amitriptyline, 30mg every night. When will the headaches go? Or is this to be expected all through the menopause?
