    Im 52 and havnt had my period for three months now! ( Hope its the end, but I doubt it) I have just about all the same stuff as you but no foot or leg cramps! Hot flashes arent bad, butt the night sweats are horrable! No sex drive here for about 8 years, and yes I want to kill hubby sometimes for no reason at all exept that Im pissed off! Most of the time there is nothing to even be mad at! I think every woman is different, but you sound very pretty normal! I refuse to do the hormone thing! My mother did it natural, and so will I! How long will it last?? God only knows! I dont believe any Dr! can give you an answer either! As for the periods, I always had very heavy and painful periods! Thats the one good thing! for the last year, they were only about every other month, much lighter, no cramps or sore boobs, but the were longer when I had them! I would trade longer anyday for bleeding to death with terrible pain! Theres my take on it! The Mr! is ready to kill me most of the time, but we have been married for almost 34 years! If he hasnt killed me by now, I doubt that he will! Hang in there, well both be fine!
