I dunno about that. I didn't seriously start falling apart until I hit 54. Now I have heart trouble and have to take medication for it, plus I'm smack dab in the middle of mentalpause which makes me homicidal and/or weepy depending on which hormone is in a state of flux.
Oh, and I've had vertigo for about 10 years but that's not uncommon in women over 30, and it rarely interferes with my life. I take meclizine (generic Dramamine Less Drowsy) for it, and that keeps it at bay 99% of the time.
Sure, the joints and bones are less fluid and more creaky and when I fall I don't bounce anymore, I splat and break things, but overall I think I'm still in pretty good shape for an old broad who's been ridden hard and put up wet more times than I can count!
