Hey! saw these posts and found them really interesting. There is one side affect that I did not see mentioned but I could have missed it. I have had SO MUCH trouble with my TOM omg. I mean you have no idea. My friends have PMS and I know it hurts them but I see them functioning like walking around and even going out . I cant do any of that. Like alot of you I feel symptoms of PMS 2 weeks before I get it. LIke I will have cramps and mood swings. All that stuff is natural to me. BUT once I get it im done for for like 6 or7 days.
I have excessive bleeding. Its more like hemoraging. Causes me to be really week and pretty much stay in bed for at least 4 days without moving. The pain from that is incredible to. Like doctors ask you in the hospital on a scale of 1 to 10 how bad does it hurt and my pain is a 20 at some points. Im in so much pain I cant even cry.
I have gone to the gynecologist ALOT about it. Last year I had an exploratory surgery because I just new I had some kind of cyst or condition. I was horrified when the results came back that my doctor found nothing unusual. I have been on many birthcontrol pills before that that made me gain a ton of weight and sent me through all kinds of withdrawals. Ive vowed never to use them again because I just dont react well to them like some people. Also I was advised to try the Depot shot but after i researched it and read the horror stories of people gaining not alittle but up to 70 pounds I was like omg no way you know. My gynocologist says that I have a very unusual situation. he said I was in the 1 percentile of girls who had normal periods yet they were so horrible that it was like they had something wrong with them. I had to go on homebound to because of this problem. The bleeding would be so severe that I coudnt go to school for that week. It has affected my work to because of that and the pain.
I just want to be functional I mean not feel GREAT even though that would be awsome lol but not go through this. I feel its a HUGE reason why I have gained weight over the years and had such a hard time keeping it off. Dont when u lose alot of blood you get hungry or crave food? I get so weak to that I dont want to walk.
ANway wow sorry this is so long this post though just inspired me to write about my situation. Has anyone ever heard of someone with PMS this bad? Is there anything that they did or you did to help you get through it?
Ive been told exercising helps to but when im as weak as I get I feel it would be dangerous for me to do much..that I might pass out of something . Now I have never tried vitamins and might give this a go because I read calcium helps. any people with results with this?
thanks to all who take the time to read this and respond. u guys are awsome and ive recieved so much help from yall. its so great to know that u are not alone on situations!!!!!!!!
