I have 3 days each month where I got very tired, oversleep and can be pretty much good for nothing. It usually occurs at the end of the month or beginning. Its severity also varies from month to month. Some months its hardly noticeable others it completely incapacitates me. Recently it appears to have shifted to occurring mid month. Just coming out of the absolute worst one I've ever had which started on Sunday, absolutely no energy whatsoever and muscles aching most of the day. Struggled to even walk half a mile to local café and I'm a marathon runner and former international athlete. Another quirk is the more severe it is the better my troublesome hypothyroid type symptoms will be in the month after 'My time of the month' GPs adamant nothing wrong with my thyroid and have only ever tested TSH. Toft who I saw in February didn't want to know about it either, he was more interested in talking about his fishing trip in the summer to an estate near where I live in the Scottish Islands. This all started 8 yrs after the medical profession in its wisdom decided to overdose me for a year on a drug that is known to mess up the thyroid. Can anyone shed any light on this rather peculiar 'Time of the month' thing that I get
