    Catameninal Epilepsy #FlareUps #cramps #episodes #heatingpad #Advice

    So I was diagnosed with catamenial epilepsy three years ago after having seizure like episodes around my period. However, I wanted to know if anyone else had severe pain and partial blackouts during this time as well?

    I’d have these flare ups ( light/food sensitivities , joint pain and GERD) that are so frequent in between it worries me sometimes.

    If anyone with catamenial epilepsy has these symptoms too please like this or comment so I know I’m not alone.

    Struggling so much today.

    To anyone who deals with tricky menstrual cycles, does it exacerbate chronic pain and or or chronic illness symptoms? My mood has absolutely tanked too. The bleeding hasn't even started yet. Periods remind me of all I can't have too. Ugh. 😨 #menstruation #Periods #ChronicPain #MoodDisorders


    How do you know when to go to the doctor? Should I go?

    I've had chronic pain for a few years and haven't gone to the doctor in almost a year. I considered going a few months ago when I had really bad stomach pain or when my menstrual cycle began getting irregular (it has remained that way) . Or a few times when my legs just kinda give up. Or about my shut-downs (I won't talk or move for 1+ hours). Today I had bad chest pain for 5-10 minutes. I can't drive so I would need to inform someone else of my symptoms, only problem is my anxiety prevents me from saying anything to anyone, including doctors. #ChronicPain #Periods #Confusion #Shutdowns


    #PMDD is an ongoing battle and I'm tired.

    I've tried birth control, anti depressants, and therapy. I have even been able to finally talk with my husband about all my hormonal issues but, I feel I won't be able to fully escape the crippling #Depression that comes monthly before my #Periods . I started #Cannabis edibles, months ago, which has made a massive dent in my PMDD. Having #Endometriosis and #PolycysticOvarySyndrome on top of it is painful. I have been dealing with this since the age of 12, I am 34 now. I'm exhausted.


    How can I get rid of heavy periods and pms?

    Every time it's the same. My periods and my pms are always heavy and cause many side effects like, pain, cramps, nausea, dizziness, exhaustion, and sometimes passing out. Another problem is that I often have it twice a month and that hormonal medication doesn't work well and causes uncomfortable side effects. How can I get rid of it? #Dysmenorrhea #Period #Periods #NauseaAndVomiting #CyclicVomitingSyndrome #PMS #exhaustion #Passingout


    Painful, heavy, but short-ish Period? What to ask the doctor?#Periods

    I got off my birth control because my husband and I wanted to try for a baby. When I was a teenager my periods were irregular and somewhat painful and when I got to college they were VERY irregular (missing a period was normal for me) and I’d be in a ton of pain when it finally decided to show up. I’ve been off my birth control which helped a lot for 2 months and each month I felt like I was dying. The symptoms are so bad that even my husband said I handle pain well and he has never seen me this miserable. #MenstrualCycle #MenstrualPain

    #52SmallThings #Week8Challenge

    So yesterday I forgot to write down my goals. Today I think my goals would be...

    Physical: Go to the gym

    Mental: give myself credit for all the things I have done well.

    Emotional: more #LionKingStuff (as in, not so many worries). Yeah, still working on that one.

    Question: Anyone feel like their symptoms worsen during “that time of month?” #Periods
