I'm 49 years old and I underwent a partial hysterectomy about 4 years ago. Since about 4 months ago, I've started having severe pain in my legs, accompanied by a weak, wobbly feeling. I also have pain in my right shoulder and arm, which was diagnosed as possibly being frozen shoulder. About a month and a half ago, I suddenly started having perspiration at odd hours, and I'm starting to notice that I'm fatigued after completing any small household chores. I am a very active person, working as a teacher and a house-maker. I want to know if this is the menopause that I am experiencing or something else? I don't feel like doing anything and I cannot focus on work, either at home or at school. I'm always feeling low and tired. Please could you give me some advice?

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
