Are achy legs a symptom of menopause?



Achy legs are not listed as a symptom of menopause by Healthline, Mayo Clinic or WebMD. Common menopause symptoms include menstrual cycle changes, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and difficulty sleeping, according to Healthline. A decreased libido, urinary tract infection, vaginal atrophy, depression and changes to skin, hair and other tissue are also symptoms of menopause.

Additional menopause symptoms include night sweats and irritability or anxiety, notes WebMD. Women experiencing symptoms of menopause should consult a doctor if the symptoms are disruptive to daily life. If vaginal bleeding occurs a year or more after the last menstrual period, it is also important to contact a doctor, as vaginal bleeding is a sign of uterine cancer and other serious conditions. Medications, including estrogen or hormone therapy, progestin and birth control pills, are prescribed to relieve menopausal symptoms.

As a preventive health care measure, Mayo Clinic advises women to schedule regular doctor visits at the start of perimenopause, the precursor to menopause. Preventive health care may include a mammogram, a breast and pelvic exam, thyroid tests, lipid screening and a colonoscopy.

Symptoms of menopause are typically due to the lowered production of progesterone and estrogen, two female sex hormones, explains Healthline. Estrogen is a hormone that impacts the reproductive system, bones, breasts, mucous membranes, and heart and blood vessels. Estrogen also regulates the menstrual cycle and affects the brain, skin, hair and pelvic muscles.
