This ones for all the ladies, possibly some of you can relate? I'm pretty high functioning (about a 7) when it comes time for "Auntie Flo's visit" my fatigue gets like 10 times worse and my O2 levels drop. 2 days before "the visit" I'll start to get more tired than usual and horrid "I think I'm in labor with an elephant" cramps. Tylenol helps, but doesn't completely cut it. I usually don't eat much because of this (otherwise I get pukey.) My fatigue gets worse before I bleed (which only lasts like 3-4 days), then afterwards the fatigue lingers for several days. I've had tests for anemia and I'm not anemic nor iron deficient. Today I've been upset with myself because I haven't been able to do much due to this wave of fatigue and achy pain. I took a nap and did a lot of low energy type stuff (which is okay since I'm only working and not in class at the moment, but come fall I'm kind of in a bind.) I'm looking forward to menopause, but have like another 25-30-ish years to go. Haha. Do you get worse before/after this time? What do you typically do about it?
