Today was a flare day. I started my cycle last night so of course today was a painful day.
I’ve never thought about researching if there is a connection between fibromyalgia and difficult menstrual cycles. I always have a painful cycle that includes severe back pains, unbearable cramps, headaches, and all over body aches. It’s like a flare, but increased cramping.
Everything flares when I’m menstruating. My stomach is my sensitive, mood swings more drastic, and depression returns for a bit. It’s most uncomfortable.
Tomorrow we have plans to be outdoors walking. I’m hoping the walk will ease my pain.
