Hi, I was diagnosed with lupus and scleroderma in 2011. I have good days and bad days but find that the days leading up to and whilst on my period, I get the symptoms of a flare up. The consultant says that this is normal and has suggested that I don't have a break in between each month but every two. This can seem to ease the symptoms but then it hits me.
Does anybody else have the same problems or is it just me? I feel like I'm moaning when I say how bad I feel during 'the time of the month' when other women have to go through it too.
Also, has anyone got any diet tips too. I seem to have put on so much weight too in the last 12 months. I'm managing to work but don't have enough time to exercise as I'm always too tired to do any. I try to eat normally but with digestive problems, I sometimes eat what I fancy rather than should.
