    Can menopause cause back, stomach pain?

    I am a 46-year-old woman. In the last three months I've noticed pain in my lower left stomach so I went to my GYN. After an exam, he ruled out ovarian cysts (that's what I thought it would be). I then went to my family doctor. She ran some blood tests and found I was in middle of menopause but not quite through it yet.  I had a hyserectomy four years ago that removed my uterus and and left my ovaries.  I now have a bloated stomach all the time (even if I eat nothing) and pain in my lower left stomach and pain in my lower back.  Any info would be greatly apprecitated on what this could be.
