I’m certinaly not as active as I youst to be. I do stretch, exerise, youga poses most days and even during the day along with heat. I do some work and then use the heating pad then more working and heat.. the heat seems to help loosen me up. The cold effects me right away and I get stiff. And I also still have hot flashes on a regular basics all day and night. I had a total hysterectomy in 2001. And from that point I have been getting worse. Sometime I feel like one side of my body is shifting.
