The discomforts of the transition through menopause can exist many years before (peri-menopause) and after (post-menopause) menstruation ceases.  Common discomforts are hot flashes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, amenorrhea or irregular menstrual cycles & bleeding patterns.

Back Pain Part I- Alternatives

There are many non-pharmacological alternatives available for the various causes of chronic pain. Common causes of lower back pain (LBP) are:

  • degenerative disk disease (osteoarthritis, herniation, osteoporosis)
  • radiculopathy & sciatica
  • muscle spasm/strain (repetitive stress & poor ergonomics)

Less common is back pain from ligament tears, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), tumors & multiple myeloma. Back pain can also be a symptom of kidney stones, gastric ulcers, pelvic inflammatory disease etc.
