I am here to ask some advise, perhaps a name of the doctor/hospital specializing in menopause research/treatment in NYC area.

My mother is 50 yrs old and her menopause started about 4 years ago.
She was very uncomfortable with lots of hot flashes, so against all advise she researched and started treating herself with a bunch of homeopathic remedies. The flashes disappeared and this is where everything else started.

She started to feel extremely tired all the time, gets disy a lot, has traveling muscle pain in various muscles daily, sometimes she looses control of her right leg and her toes seem to be curled under her foot and she can't straighten them, and some other symptoms I really don't want to list.

We have been to several doctors, did every urine and blood test ever conceived, she has taken prescribed hormone pills, but hey generally make her feel worse. A common answer to all tests: everything is in order, all hormone levels are in range and so on.

Once in a while (maybe once every 1.5-2 months) she would get a hot flash, during which she really starts feeling better!!!! All other symptoms disappear and reappear the next day.
If anyone out there has any info, please share.
Thank you so much!
