Does menopause lead to slow growth and/or loss of body hair i.e. leg and arm pits?

Yes

Testosterone
Menopause also causes lower testosterone levels which affect your body hair. Testosterone is produced in the ovaries (which are no longer working in menopause) & in the adrenal glands which slow down with age as well.

Pulled muscle in my upper arm. should i wrap it with a tensor bandage to add some support and/or a little pressure, and should i ice or heat it?

Timing is important

Muscle
If your injury is within 48 hrs, ice & bandage it -- do not heat, to minimize swelling/injury. After 48 hrs, it doesn't matter, but heat would be preferable after 48 hrs to improve blood flow to area, help healing. Compression with a bandage is not needed unless there is swelling to be prevented.

What do you do if you have a bad side effect to anti depressant and or antianxiety drug like nerve twitching arm goes numb brain zaps memory loss etc?

Speak with doctor

Memory
If you have any side effects to a new medication, call your treating physician for a follow up appointment. This situation cannot usually be well done over the phone, and warrants some time to determine exactly what is going on and what to do about it.

Dr. Mary B. Engrav answered:

All the muscles in my left arm hurt from the armpit to the wrist. Most of the time it only hurts in the tricep and or bicep I've had PT for the past 8 weeks twice a week. I only get relief for a couple of hours. Most of the time it's very painful when I l

Pain

Pain that is radiating down your arm could be from several causes. Pain radiating down your arm is always concerning for heart pain. If you have any chest pain, shortness of breath, or palpitations you would have to be seen immediately. Pain could also be coming from the spinal cord (cervical spine) and radiating down your arm. If you had any numbness, tingling, or weakness you would have to be seen immediately for that. There are other musculo-skeletal causes of pain as well. Please be seen by your doctor for a complete evaluation, but if you have the warning signs above you would have to be seen immediately.

How can I get rid of dark under arms and or inner thighs?

Depends on cause

Arm
Hydroquinone based creams are used to help lighten dark spots. What you are describing, however, could be a condition called acanthosis nigricans. This is commonly associated with high insulin levels and insulin resistance. I see it frequently in patients who are significantly overweight. If that is what you have, it needs to be addressed by your doctor.

Random, PAINLESS muscle jerks in arms and/or legs plus occasional neck spasm with no history of SCI, or other injuries. What would cause this?

Movement disorder

Leg
Dystonias or other movement disorders are often painless, involving often bizarre posturing or sudden random motions. There are a considerable variety of these, some of which are post-infectious, secondary to medications, psychiatric disorders, as well as genetically-determined movement disorders. IF this a persistent problem, see a neurologist.
