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:
very slow recovery from colds/flu
red palms/fingertips
history of chronic thyroiditis
difficulty conceiving children
adrenal insufficiency
having asthma
sensitivity to bright light
male characteristics
hair loss on lower legs
sexual abuse during childhood
early term miscarriage
... 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.
