Can Menopause Cause Pain, Weight Loss?

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Oct 2014 11:27 AM

Question: I went through menopause three years ago and have no health problems. But last one year I started having severe pains in my calf muscles and am losing weight. What could be causing the pain and weight loss?
 
Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Unexplained weight loss must always be discussed with your doctor. An evaluation is in order. Your muscle aches may be a part of a broader disorder that should be assessed without delay.
 
Weight loss can be tied to hormonal changes, illness, infection, an underlying immune disorder. It can also be a warning sign for cancer. It’s time for you to schedule an appointment with your doctor without delay.
