Anyone know what kind of disease this is considered. Before menopause, my joints were strong. After menopause, they feel loose and dangly. I still take HRT so I'm still able to play tennis. But barely. confused

Hmmm. that's a good question. Could the medication be doing that? Are you on anything else?
 
I'm guessing Erin or someone more experienced in this could help. Have you spoken to a doctor yet about this?
 
I hate that feeling. I've dealt with it before and it's not fun!
 
Take care.

Yes I have spoken to my doctor. It seems like it's a genetic thing that came on after menopause. Has to be lack of estrogen and progesterone.

Thanks for responding. It's not life threatening so I will have to live with the inconvenience. yeah

Ceres,

Were you evaluated for osteoporosis?

You say your joints are weak?  What made you notice this?  Was is a change in range of motion?  or difficulty moving, lifting, reaching?

I know personally, I get that same feeling of "loose dangly" joints when I am on prednisone.

What genetic predisposition is your doc talking about?

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Keep at that tennis!

Sincerely,

Erin
