I do not have any other diseases. Abdominal pain is mostly tenderness moves from right to left side - possibly fluid related. Numbness is in both legs. No other symptoms. My period stopped about 5 months ago. Have had periodic swelling since in ankles, knees - mostly around time period would have started. This month my ankles swelled, then knees, then into legs and hasn't gone away - seems menopausal related. I have had ovarian cysts before, but that was 15 years ago.

Have you done any blood and urine test.

Hi,
Thanks for the information.
Have you done any bood test to rule out anemia,vitamin b12 and d3 deficiency.
Because mild numbness could be due to vitamin b12 and d3 deficiency.
You can take supplement for the same.
If you are not having any other symptoms, odema can be explained due to menopause also.
Hope to hear from you soon.
