Hormones aggrivate my Fibromyalgia

Mar 28, 2016 9:25 AM

Hi has anyone else been suffering more with hormones? Has anyone had any treatment to stop periods? My pain level peaks like giving birth everyday even with usual tablets, tablets do not work at all when it's my time of the month. Has anyone else experienced this? Thank you and a happy Easter. πŸ£πŸ‡πŸŒΌπŸŒΉπŸŒž

I was on the 3 month birthcontrol that helped but my new insurance won't cover it.

After years of issues I had to have a hysterectomy.

Oh Hail to the V!!!! I seriously hope you can find the thread where I went completely menopausal crazy, loud and proud....I even laughed my ass off at my damn self. Hormones alone ...girl you just joined our CLUB! Happy peri-menopausal to you! God bless the people in your life with patience and understanding... Cause of they don't got that , then only heaven can help them. Hormones can aggravate a holy nun. (Snickering) grab your pads and join our circle!!!! Love, Terri

I don't have an official diagnosis of fibromyalgia (neurologist seems to be leaning towards it, however), but, YES, hormones play a huge role in my pain cycles. I am 1-2 days pre-period, and I'm in the midst of a very nasty flareup. Muscle pain, skin pain, fatigue, weakness, spasms, and brain fog...yay.

My best weeks tend to fall during ovulation. Anyone else have a similar pattern?
