Since my diagnoses of fibro just over a year ago now I've noticed just before my period starts usually about a week before my fibromyalgia flares up ... The last few months it's been really bad.. This month it was at it's worse... The pain I experienced was so intense I thought there was something really serious wrong.. I even though that I might have been pregnant because I felt so ill tired and sick... My breasts became very tender and painful.. I was very close to buying a test.. Then as soon as my period came my fibro symptoms was much better.. I actually had more energy and my period was a relief... I'm now dredging my next month because it all starts just before the middle of the month then get better for a week then it starts to get really bad just before... Does anyone else experience this ... I've looked at various web sites but not much info on what you can do to help eliviate the problem ?
