PMDD and Fibro HELL

hello there! I am from the US and i have PMDD and Fibromyalgia, over the past year or so like 2 weeks before my cycle starts i get so severe in not only my physical symptoms but my mental state deteriorates, i have ended up in emergency care over the past couple days and was so bad, but finally i started my cycle today and i feel much better than i have in weeks, i am going to get on Nexplanon, the arm implant. has anyone tried this? any success out there?

thanks all!!

Hi @Inmyfeels29

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I have pasted for you below a link to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you also suffer with PMDD and I have pasted you a link below to the emc website cache on Nexplanon below. As with all drugs of this nature there are a large number of potential side effects:

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi dahling, I'm so sorry to hear the health issues you're having. I was never diagnosed with pmdd, but my obgyn decided because of the dibilitating effects of my legs and overall fibromyalgia flare up , along with ibs symptoms, she stopped my cycles from occuring. I'm 47 and menopausal now, but I struggled with the emotional distress and physical symptoms, to where it was too much. An iud and very low dose hormone took that away. Having a cycle every month is not necessary, as long as the uterine lining stays thin. There are many options available and trial & error can be part of the process, so be patient, but I pray it will be calmed and relief will greet you in return. It was difficult for me to walk, and the sadness was overwhelming. Hang in there dahling, best of wishes on your relief mission

Hi Inmyfeels29 I haven't tried Nexplanon if you look at the home page or mother site it may have information on there that could be useful.

If you can see pinned posts in blue there is one on symptoms and treatments. Let me know if you need me to send you the link.

Good Luck my friend

Thank you all so much for the help and advice, I really do appreciate it, I am looking forward to getting to talk to all of you, I just got up to go to my first pain management here, new home, new husband, I also have seen a rheumatologist as well, tests are being run for lots of things too, and we are looking for any doctor that can help figure out all of what ails me. I have had a rough run but hopefully it turns around, and maybe I can get some more rest today, that would be super, i will keep posting, you guys are wonderful,thanks again everyone!! Loves!
