    I feel terrible all the time, especially in the mornings. I have been to the doctor and there is nothing seriously wrong but i just want to be comfortable again.

      Hello Gaynor, Sorry to hear that you are in a lot of pain. If the HRT cream is not working well, it is best to let the GP know. There are alternative remedies that might be worth considering, as mentioned on this page, such as, Uva Ursi Complex and Menopause support tablets. Alternatively, it could be an idea to see someone like a nutritional practitioner. They can offer you support through an individual treatment plan to help.
