Nausea 8 days before period starts
Hi everyone, this is my first post. I'll try and be brief as possible.
I need input as to why I am getting sick 8 days before my period comes!
I have been feeling like this for two years now.
My period has always been regular, 28 days exactly. As soon as I get to day 20 in my cycle I start feeling awful, and there is no pain involved. It feels slightly like my uterus and vaginal walls are contracting during this time too.
I have been on three different types of pill, still when I reached the sugar pills I was ill, even worse. I take multi-vitamins, I've tried Agnus Castus, Black Cohosh, Calcium, I take vitamin B6 a week before this starts, nothing has helped.
I try ginger, peppermint (in the form of tea, food, or aromatherapy) and they only help slightly. I've taken anti-emetics such as stemetil and maxolon, but they don't work very well either (Good for viruses not for hormones?)
I've had internal and external exams, I eat very healthy (a little more salt than most but my body seems to crave it.), I've had full blood work, inc thyroid tests. I've even had my hormone levels tested and they seemed to be fine.
It is ruining my life feeling so ill, does anyone have ANY input to what it could be? I'm willing to hear anything obscure. I had to leave my job because I took too much time off. Doctors seem to shrug, HELP!
I've put this under hormone problems, because I believe it to be something to do with my hormones.
