I have Joint pain, sleeplessness, depression, hot flashes and the list goes on and on. I'm 42 years old. Could I be menopausal?

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your post. Definitely, these are symptoms of menopause. At your age, is absolutely normal to start experiencing some symptoms. Such as hot flashes, mood swings, difiiculties falling asleep and many other. You need to discuss with your doctor the type of treatments best for you. Some women choose not to take HRT and prefer a natural option of treatment. It also depends on your medical history.  Hope this has helped. 

Here are some resources for you
