Does anyone else find their chest gets worse before their period is due? I've never really noticed any issues before but since being diagnosed with Addisons have been more aware of feeling I'll & needing more nebs as my chest is playing up.
I know there are a few people who use this site who have both conditions like I do & wondered if they had also noticed a worsening of their Addisons the week before as well. I'm still new to having to juggle both & aren't sure what's normal. I'm getting what i think is 'normal' period cramps but also cramps in my legs, being unable to get warm (actually shivering) & feeling really sick with a severe headache. I've also started to crave salty foods, if it had been chocolate I wouldn't have been worried.I don't have a specialist nurse for the Addisons like I do asthma so don't have anyone I could just run queries by. I know you have to in increase hydrocortisone to cope when you are ill but didn't know if this would include 'time of the month' issues.
Sorry for raising this here but I was hoping that there would be someone with experience of this. It's strange having 2 conditions as you're never sure where to go to for help.
Many thanks & apologies for the long post
