Feel like a bit of a crock! My hips ache, particularly the left one and I have backache in the morning and sore toe joints. I know it's nothing serious as have had a hip scan (I've had breast cancer so doctor is always more cautious) so am assuming it's my hormones. Reckon I'm peri menopausal or menopausal. What's the difference? I wonder if there's anything I can do except for HRT which I can't have?

R u on any of the long term breast cancer meds ??
If so, they are probably causing the pain, they shut down oestrogen , creating a menopause, which can cause joint pain.
