Hi all. In July 2020 I went to ER with chest pain, only to find a clot on opposite side in lung. Clot was not worrisome, however I went off birth control, had one period, and promptly entered menopause (was in peri before). The BC was stopping menopause (and maybe some other issues, but not sure if that was due to no longer having commute stress due to pandemic. In October of 2020, muscles (joints tendons bones who knows!) began hurting all over, had rotator issues. Fine when exercising though. Still waiting to see rheumatologist though. Already have bad bones from prednisone use, so a bit worried that I can't do hormone therapy due to blood clot. So now, vagina is quite dry, but recently had severe pain below belly button, almost felt bladder related. Had a yeast infection before and had to take antibiotics. I thought the pain was due to hard stool going through intestine/stricture, but it's still there and now bowel movements are very soft again. Anyone with menopausal issues causing issues with chrons? Kind of freaking and just wondering what others have experienced?
