Suffering from muscle and joint aches, tiredness, hot flushes, urinary incontinence with gaining weight

muscle and joint aches , weight gain, tired, hot flushes, urinary incontinence , eye problems, hand and foot cramps, forgetfulness is this due to thyroid i went to my doctor because I was not sleeping due to waking up sweating and i put this down to menopause because of my gender and age (51), he looked at me and ordered a thyroid test. I was surprised, but it does explain a few things, for example, i work out with a personal trainer, but am gaining weight, I have muscle and joint aches, I get forgetful - normally i have an excellent memory, i am slower physically, and cannot keep up with other people who do not work out! i have urinary incontinence on occasions, my eyes are sore and feel as if something is in them, i have hand and feet cramping and i had put all this down to getting older. Is it likely to be due to thyroid, i have two weeks to wait for results of blood tests.

Thanks for query,

These are the signs of having manopausal syndrome.

You might have thyroid too.

This due to hormonal changes taking place during this time.
Urinary incontinence might be due to cystocele.

Consult gynaec and seek advice,

You attend Manopausal clinic and class.

Ok and bye.
