Question Getting sick first day of menstral cycle. help.

The last three times I have started my period on the first day I get very ill, sick to my stomach and I throw up. I get really shaking. I checked my blood pressure today and it was right at the low level. I have NEVER had trouble with my blood pressure that I know of. I took a vitamin incase I was lacking something in my system. I don't have any other symptoms. Anyone else have this happen and if so what do you do about it? Does this come with age? I'm only 33. It feels almost like nerves, does that time of the month mess with your nerves? I am not on birth control and no chance of being pg. Any info or advice would be great.

I get the same thing, except the day before I start my period. Some months, I can't get out of bed.

Maybe get your hormone levels checked? If you're getting extremely strong periods and spikes in hormones it will make you sick as a dog...Otherwise, it might just be something unavoidable, although b/c might regulate it somewhat.

Re: Getting sick first day of menstral cycle. help.

I often feel sick the first day of my period too. I almost feel like I am coming down with the flu. I get aches and pains, feel feverish, have a headache, and am just dead tired. It seems to happen every other month or so.

You may want to talk to your doctor if it is interfering with your day to day activities. I seem to live with it - I just take a lot of Advil!
