I have a diagnosis of undifferentiated connective tissue disease - likely SLE. Generally my symptoms of joint pain, fatigue, mouth ulcers are so much better on a strict gluten free, dairy free,largely organic vegetarian diet with a miriad of supplements. BUT premenstrually it is awful. I get the headache (unrelieved by any analgesic) fatigue and sleeplessness I used to have all the time. This time the headache was so bad. I should b grateful as all this used to last several weeks and this time it was only 3 days. But 3 days when I could do nothing else but take to my bed.
Sorry just needed to vent and family don't get it.
