      Hi Angie You may find taking the Devils Claw and a fish oil supplement can help to ease the joint pain. Symptoms in the morning can often indicate that you have become dehydrated during the night so remember to drink lots of water during the day and try a little shot glass of warm water just before bed. You could also try the Arnica Gel as this often works quickly to ease pain and discomfort.

      Hi Diane Unfortunately, at this point doing lots of exercise if your joints are sore is not a good idea both from the pain and also the exercise can irritate the joints further making things worse. I tend to suggest really gentle exercise such as yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi or swimming just to keep you moving. The Devils Claw may be of benefit alongside the Menopause Support. Low magnesium and calcium can also be an issue so it may be an idea to take a good supplement. Acupuncture can often work well for both joint pain and balancing the hormones.

    I used to do so much exercise just a year ago now finding it hard to get back to due to sciatica pain which gets worse when I walk. I get so many aches and pains now stops me doing much which makes things worse and feel bloated too

      Hi Shirley Do get this checked out by your doctor just in case it is not related to the menopause. If it is the why not try the water and see if you can tweak your diet, sometimes this can make a difference quite quickly!
