Menopause-Related Arthritis

What Causes Menopausal Arthritis?

Menopausal arthritis can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose menopausal arthritis, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "menopausal arthritis" as a symptom.  For example, adrenal fatigue.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
late term miscarriage
history of asthma
severe fatigue after slight exertion
poor tolerance of heat
regular infections
major fatigue for 3-12 months
shingles
severe sexual abuse during childhood
poor cold weather tolerance
adverse reaction to stress
low energy/stamina
hypoglycemia
... and more than 40 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of menopausal arthritis.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate being menopausal or being postmenopausal, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Do you have arthritis that appeared around menopause?
Possible responses:
→ Not applicable / don't know
→ No
→ Mild
→ Moderate
→ Severe
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate not having menopausal arthritis, mild menopausal arthritis, menopausal arthritis or severe menopausal arthritis, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Low Adrenal Function / Adrenal Insufficiency.
