I always get that urge and those pains....especially when I'm trying to sleep...now that you mention it.
I tried playing some badminton today....it hurts so much afterwards....even after only like 15 minutes of play. I think it has a lot more to do with collagen loss and very weak connective tissue that comes along with severe AF. I had this MUCH worse when I wasn't even supplementing with any HC... but for you it might be a weaning off symptom I guess...
I hope I can start weaning off soon :/
I wish u the best Marie in your recovery....you've been through a lot you deserve it.
