Chronic pain and periods

Oct 01, 2018 1:56 PM

I have CRPS over most if my body, and everevery time I get my period I always get a really bad flare up. Dies anybody else have this?

Totally Cass24! I used to dread that time of the month. I'm on the contraceptive injection now which just happened to stop my periods so I feel much better now.

Hope you're okay

Cass24, I just read an article regarding hormones and fibromyalgia. It said women were twice as likely to have fibro than men, and a higher level of pain, all due to our fluctuating estrogen levels. Maybe it's the same with CRPS. Hugs love and prayers your flare up will improve very soon! 🙂❤🙏🌼
