Older age with HA
« on: April 03, 2014, 06:55:18 PM »
Any older folks here over 50 that have HA?   
Do you find it increased with age?

I can't say.  'Oh well, I'm young, not likely to happen to me"  , so everything has become a HA issue.
I already struggle with known health issues.

EXACTLY!!!!  Thank you!!!   My only comfort when younger was, "I'm too young for that" now I don't even have that anymore!  However...  I can still "fool" myself.  Many times I'll say, "Oh that's menopause"   ;D

Oh I can relate to both of you. I have symptoms that can't be explained,and I guess I can't attribute those to age, but I do feel my HA has sky rocketed with age.

I can't even say menopause anymore as that was at 46 and I'm 58 now.   

Pm me anytime to talk more if anyone likes.

When something in said in chat/forum....That happens with older people.....I go into Yikes mode.

My last period was April 2011, but you can DEFINITELY still have symptoms of menopause POST menopause.  Sometimes they may even be worse.  Or o you mean your last period was at 46?
I just had a long time pen pal diagnosed with terminal liver cancer - one month to live.  I've been freaking all evening.

I'm 65-had ha about 2 years-seems getting worse all the time.  I guess its the idea i'm getting closer to death-and scared about it. I worry about missing milestones in my kids lifes-and being cheated of mine.

Same me.  I have 3 wonderful young adult now children I should be enjoying and visiting. 

My last cycle was at age 45. So the one year without at 46 meant post meno.

With all my HA problems-the funny part of it is in 2 months my daughter will be graduating med school and be a real doctor.  I just dont tell her all-she'll even have me peged as crazy.  /The less she knows the better.

Yes, I can definitely relate to this as I am one of the "older" folk around here.  The older I get the worse I feel and I realize the more likely it is a real disease.  All those diseases that we really couldn't get in our 20's, 30's or 40's because we were too young - suddenly I'm at the perfect age for them.  I don't like getting old one bit.  My body is aching so much, how does one know if these aches and pains are normal or not?  My doctor really isn't much help.  He either brushes everything off or scares me halfway to death by sending me for a ct scan or some other horrid scary test.
