I was diagnosed with Fibro about 13 years ago, I'm 44 yrs old and in the middle of Peri menopause. I am also an older mom, have my first 3 kids in my 20's and early 30's....then when I turned 40 I found myself pregnant again lol My last child was the only one I was pregnant with while having Fibro.
It seems this Peri menopause is making my Fibro flares occur more often and more severe....then on top of that I have all those nasty symptoms of Peri...nausea, inability to sleep through the night, horrific mood swings, and my periods are all over the place. They were 28 days like clock work then after the birth of my 4th child it went crazy. Started every 20-22 days, missed one period completely 2 yrs back and I would have some periods not happen til like day 32. Now this past month in Dec...had one normal period then 18 days later I had another (I think lol) It was brown, then bright red, but not alot and lasted 3 days. Not sure if that was another period or spotting lol I have no idea if I'm into day 16 of my cycle *because I think I may of had a period* OR if I'm late because that wasn't a period and it was spotting!!! lol Gotta love this.
Just finding it really hard to deal with BOTH at the same time. Also, ordered Maca even though I don't get the hot flashes if I do they are mild and are rare.
