Does menopause have side effects of backache and sensitivity ?

Over a week ago I began to have a painful sensitivity to my skin on the right, lower back, and the right front thigh. Because it has been over a week and I have seen no evidence of a rash or breakout, I m assuming it is not Shingles . The pain increases as the day progresses. I am a fifty year old woman and thought it might be a side affect of Menopause, but I have no other symptoms such as hot flashes. Six months ago I was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder also I my right side. I have finally began to see an improvement with the pain related to that, and now I have something new.

I am 54, and have been on the pill since 2004. I had completed chemo for Non-Hodgkins 10 years ago and my doctor did not want me to experience the effects of menopause in my early 40 s. Now at 54, I have high blood pressure and she wants me to stop the low dosage pill. What will the side effects be? I haven t had a period in years, and she observed in an vaginal ultrasound that my overies have gotten smaller. I am mostly worried about the side of effects of menopause. By the way, I am completely cancer free.

can I safely use natural herbal supplements for menopausal symptoms after having a TIA and being taken off of Hrt therapy...only recommendation I have been given is to take an antidepressant brisdelle or blood pressure clonidine I don t have either of these issues..last blood pressure reading 108/70...although I am having several hot flashes daily 1-2 hour intervals the worst symptom is joint pain ...which I experienced before I went on hrt and do have an appt with a rheumatologist unfortunately not until May. My family dr. Prescribed prednisone which really escalated things instead of helping....Tia cause unknown all ct scans carotids mri echo ecg negative. Did have a high protein flag on the anti coag screen. Taking 325 mg aspirin daily as recommended by hematologist? Do not want to start another possible addictive drug regimen until I see my rheumatologist. I am not looking for a drug to cover it all up but a way to get back to healthy

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

hi I have a question, my husband has a rash on the back of his neck that just started out real small... he thought it was a pimple at 1st, he scratched it and he said it kinda stung a little and was sore right at 1st, well he didnt think much of it then the following day he ended up getting more spots and he said that they oozed out with stuff when he went to scratch them or rub them.. hes never had this before... we are wondering if it could be shingles or possibly something else that might be contagious.. nobody else has this in our household except for him... we arent sure what it is

I am curious what this is. I think it s a pimple (or a few of them), but it s in an odd spot on the side of my rib cage (near where my bra would be on the side). Ignore the scar - it s from a childhood heart surgery.
