Does any ones MS get worse when PMS starts? Mine is about a week before my cycle and than through my cycle. Does this get better after menopause? Are the MS symptoms better or worse or do they level out after menopause?
(My story on my MS is on the title diagnosed with ms 9-06)
would it be better to get a hyst. done?
anytime your hormones change, MS changes with it. For some, it gets worse already PMS time..most people are more affected when they actually GET their period...as for menopause, yes it gets worse, while going thru it, and levels off as the hormones level off.
THere are lots of studies being done as we speak about Estriol, the female hormone and MS- nothing conclusive has been announced.
I know I'm jumping in late here but I'd forgotten about these boards and just now found them again.
Anyway, are you on depression meds? I am on wellbutrin and was complaining of worsening syptoms during the week before my cycle. The doctor felt my problem was really with the depression meds as they don't work as well during that time. So my gyn put me on seasonale (only 1 period every 3 months) so at least it limits the time that my wellbutrin isn't working.
I am not on any depression meds. But just started my cycle yest. evening and last night and this morning I hurt and ache all over really bad headache, almost like a migraine, and I can barely walk and my foot is dragging alot. I am wondering if having a hyst would be the answer. I can't do any birth control pills or anything of that sort because I have chronic high blood pressure. Just don't know what to do!:
I learned something really interesting from my Gyne. She said your immune system is at it's lowest point right before and during your cycle. Have you ever noticed the bad luck of getting a cold right around the time when you have it? This happens to be a few times a year. But I have a ton of female probs including endo, adhesions, and ovarian cysts. So, right now I'm currently in alot of pain.
