Could be hormones.  I started feeling like that in my 30s (I'm 37 now)... achy, tired, foggy, etc etc and enlisted a homeopathic doc (no regular, big-pharma-agenda-ed docs for me).   I started eating a whole diet at around 36 (nothing refined, mostly raw, very limited red meat, less fruit, more berries and nuts).  I also started taking a double dose of liquid Omega 3s and tripled the D3 dose on the bottle.  Within a few days, I felt better.  Within a couple of weeks, I felt 100% normal again.  For me, it was absolutely hormonal and it is for most women out there.  Remember, menopause (premenopause, perimenopause) starts in our 30s.

Rant done... hahahaa!!

Welcome to 30ish. My warranty expired at 30. Knees..back....shoulders ..all pop and ache. I've been a cna for 14 years so that's my reason. Why are you falling apart? Lol

Hahaha! I've been saying the same thing lately! I'm 31, will be 32 in January. My joints hurt, it takes me forever to get off the couch and I'm having issues with flexibility lol. I'm about 5-10lbs overweight (damn baby weight won't leave!!!!) so it's nothing really outrageous, so I don't think it's that lol. I walk a lot and do yoga when I can. I drink a ton of water and take vitamins --but I'm still falling apart!

Ugh, I hope not. I didn't enjoy my 20's much since I was busy raising kids. I was hoping my 30's and 40's would be better.

For me a lot of this depends on how I eat. I personally find eliminating grains, dairy and sugar really helps. I no longer feel and act old.

I've felt physically fatigued since my late twenties. I also get a lot of backaches and headaches.

Just curious, how long does perimenopause symptoms last? My mom stopped getting her menses at the age of 50 and claims she had no symptoms. I know every woman is different and I also know she probably had symptoms, maybe she didn't really recognize it though.

Small symptom onset was in early 30s.  It got extreme at about 35.  I didn't let it get worse because I changed my lifestyle.  Menopause normally ends in the late 40s/early 50s.  I was in premenopause/perimenopause.  I still am but its manageable.
