The reason why your Fibromyalgia (FM) gets worse when on your period is because FM takes your period pain (PP) and makes it worse, widespread and prolonged.So if you can identify where the source of your pain is coming from and treat that pain than FM will improve. For me I get back PP. So if I take my muscle relaxant which improves my back PP it also improves my FM.
YES! Right there with you right now! LOL I guess its good to know we are not alone. It was also good to hear that while pregnant, FM symptoms were reduced. I would love to hear more about this if anyone has additional info. That is actually really reassuring as I'm trying to get off my meds but have no idea how I will function for 9+++ months without Lyrica! Thanks ladies!
For sure it does for me! Ive also got endometrosis and recently had the laproscopic surgery and an IUD put in to help take my period and endo pain. Low and behold, after a month Ive had a constant period and all the fun stuff that comes with it. I really wish you all the best with your flare ups! Weather is a major contributing factor for me as well, does that make it worse for any of you?
