Has anyone been through menopause? If so does it cause night sweats, mood swings, and chronic dabilitating pain that lasts for 9+ days?  I'm at such a loss for what is going on, so are the drs that i'm wondering if maybe im not hitting menopause really really early. The night sweats stopped when the pain first got to this degree 9 days ago, but they came back with a vengence last night. So now i'm having pain and the night sweats, and the mood swings have been around for a bit...so does this sound like menopause?

I did not have night sweats, but those are a normal symptom of menopause, as are mood swings.

What pain  are you having? I did not have pain.

Exercise and a great mental health specialist and 6 months of an antidepressant. got me through it.

I was done with periods by 44, but the mood swings, well, I'm not sure they are gone yet but are much better! I am 48.

I hit "premature menopause" at age 42 when my right adrenal gland was removed due to a benign tumor.  No symptoms at all for me that are obvious except for the absent period and unfortunately beginning osteoporousis,   I have had 2 infusions of the drug Reclast to help prevent its progression to full-blown.  Doc said if I did start having hot "flushes" as he called them that there were ways to treat them.  Talk to your GYN he/she will help.   Blood tests can confirm if you truly are hitting that stage of life.

I had all those symptoms except the pain.  I also had severe insomnia,  Many women do not suffer from it as bad as I did.  So I did a lot of research The synthetic hormones are unsafe, and most doctors know little about the natural compounded hormones.  Most doctors prescribe only  estrogen, but progesterone is very important in the balance.  There is a very good doctor in Jacksonville Florida that can give you some guidance over the phone, and likely direct you to a knowledgeable doctor near you.  Here is their website:

Natural Harmone Institute

Here is an article on the subject: Hot Flashes And Sleepless Nights
