I made an incredible discovery that I want to share regarding a frozen shoulder or possibly other similar joint issues.
Recently my shoulder started to get stiff and painful. Over a period of a few days it worsened such that I could hardly use my arm at all. I had a hard time sleeping as it was so painful I couldn’t get comfortable enough to get to sleep.
Frozen Shoulder and Hormones
I started researching to figure out what this was and concluded it was a condition called “Frozen Shoulder”. This condition most often effects menopausal women. As I read up more and more about this condition, I got more and more freaked out. It can last a year. Painful physical therapy is most recommended. Most pain meds don’t help it. I studied all of the top medical sites – Mayo Clinic, WebMD and others. It all just sounded absolutely horrible. The thought of losing the use of my arm for a year and enduring this pain was more than depressing. Overall it was looking pretty bleak.
So I studied more to find alternative treatments and stumbled upon a few obscure articles and some forums that talked about the relation of frozen shoulder and hormones. It made sense since this most often effects women in menopause.
So I applied doses of my bio-identical hormone creams (both estrogen and progesterone) that day and again that night before bed. By the time I woke up the next morning it was greatly improved and I mean a LOT. Within a couple days of daily application of these hormone creams it was completely back to normal.
One doesn’t need to be in menopause to have hormones go out of balance. This can happen at any age, but most definitely happens just before and during menopause. And I don’t recommend just slathering on some creams. Go to a clinic that specializes in bioidentical hormones and get your levels checked and get properly prescribed bioidentical hormones, not synthetic hormones that have risks and dangerous side effects.
Can you imagine going through a year of agony by not knowing that some simple hormone replacement could handle the whole situation within a day or two? WOW! That blew me away.
Not to mention the fact that I have been experiencing more and more joint pain in recent months – what do you know, it had everything to do with my estrogen levels dropping when I went into menopause.
If you Google frozen shoulder and hormones you will see a large number of articles about the connection. Here is one article about it: https://www.34-menopause-symptoms.com/joint-pain.htm – see under “Causes of Joint Pain” section.
Needless to say, if you know of anyone with this condition or other joint pain problems, please pass on this information and save them a lot of needless misery!!
