Yes I can sympathize.
My periods have always had me in bed oddly on the second day of bleeding. The last period was really bad, I was sat on the loo not knowing if I wanted to vomit, urinate, defecate or pass out.
My husband was in bed (it was around 6am) I knew if I called him he would have called the ambulance. :yikes:
I was soo weak with the pain I pulled the towel off the rail and lay there for about an 40 mins. I will spare you what I had to cleaning up.
I managed to get back to bed and stay there for the rest of the day.

A few days later I also had a bad allergic reaction ( I carry an epi pen because we don’t know what it is I’m allergic to!!) luckily I took the antihistamines in time.
But its left me with three more spider nevi on my face!

Hey ho
Keep on trucking girls.
Love an peace

hi , i also suffer heavy and very painful periods. the doc gave me some tablets but they didn't work so i have to just deal with it the best i can. i never used to be bothered at all with heavy painful periods so my doc said that it is linked to my FM. :banghead:

ps they also last longer!!!

I had mirena coil fitted. Periods were pretty none existance yippee.

But after a month having it fitted I started with really bad breast pain. After 9 months I had it removed because the pain wasn't settling down. Shame really.

I too have a merina fitted and I love it, although after 8 weeks I am still bleeding slightly. This didn't happen first time I had one.

My periods weren't too bad but i got sterilised after having my last baby and the docs all said that this is why mine went mental on me.

omg, reading around this site i had no idea that all of the little irritants during that time of the month were attributable to fms

i had noticed the fact that it lasts longer and is different, but i thought that was just me adjusting to my sterilisation

i get wicked sciatica on the first day and for the first time ever my last one had me in bed with a hot water bottle

i've never felt so ill as i did last time

i'm so grateful for this site, it's putting so many of my little niggles to rest which is helping me to cope in a much more effective way

Be good, take care, see you soon :-)

LOL! Jesus reading through these replies makes me feel more normal now. I had a TCRE in 2004 this co-insided with my slipped disc.. I thought wonderful the end of heavy periods and cramps. How wrong was I although the heavyness of the periods stopped almost immediately the cramps and boob soreness got worse. I am at that age now where the menopause is fast creeping up on me and although I have several tests as I have the symptoms but apparently not the loss of hormones.. I can only put my hot sweats acheing boobs down to fibro. I have had several cysts in my boobs dispersed over the last year and have just over the weekend found another think I will leave this one as I cant bear the thought of having more needles poked in me... :goodluck2: :fingerscrossed: that we all have Happy Periods as the advert says .. I mean it can only be a man that dreampt that advert up cant it.
