I don't ovulate until the 5th of this month but yet I feel bad today...anxiety, cold n cough, feet cold, tightness in the throat area, what is going on? When is this nightmare going to be over? I want to get back to work!!
I seem to have months where I feel awful around ovulation and during the period, and a bit better in between. Then I have months (like this one) where I don't get to the "bit better" part. Ovulation makes it worse, period makes it worse. Every month is a surprise :)
I totally understand you. I felt AWFUL last week for about 4 days I had the normal laundry list of awfulness plus a cold my boyfriend brought home. slept 3 hours/night and was exhausted but body wouldn't let me sleep more :( I just want to get better and get back to school and work too :( We have to just keep telling ourselves it will get better and we will get back to normal eventually. :D Hang in there and I will keep fighting as well!
I wish there was too :( I contacted Dr. J, the one who helped proudmama so much. I feel so desperate to try to get better as I'm sure you know during these rough patches it feels like you're dying and/or you want to die if you keep feeling this way :( I have another Dr. appointment tomorrow. I will keep you posted on that as well as when I hear back from Dr. J :)
I always feel even worse around ovulation, too. This month I had a little relief from an anti inflammatory med. my neuro gave me. He said ovulation pain can be from too many prostoglandins. It's indomethacin and it's generic. It helped somewhat with my all over muscle pain (horrible burning pain) and quite a bit with that hard knot of anger I get at that time of month. I think it equates to what some describe as anxiety (?) With me it feels more like road rage. My husband even made a comment about my mood being so much better by the next day. Instructions say take for 14 days but I only had to take it for 5-6. I hate meds, but "any port in a storm."
