Had hysterectomy, smoker, prescribed HRP patch. Having pains in knees, elbows, ankles, on medicines. Suggestions?

Hello, I recently had a hysterectomy (my age is 41) my doctor did prescribe me a HRP patch but I wanted to see how I would do naturally. I also do smoke methamphetamines occasionally. Prior to my hysterectomy I did not have any pains anywhere. My concerns are two things. 1) is 41 too early to be without estrogen . By choosing not to take it am i possibly speeding up my aging physically 2) i am experiencing some serious pains on my knees, elbows, ankles, and my bones constantly crack even with taking caltrate and vitamin D and i am 5 2 and weigh 158. What does this mean? So even with methanphetamines in factor would this have anything to do with these symptoms would the patch alleviate the majority of these problems. The hotflashes dont help either. Mentally i am fine it is just that I am physically miserable, uncomfortable, and worried that my decision to not take the hormones is putting me in the express lane for physical aging . . . . Would love some professional opinion . . Who is not my Doctor. Thank you
