Pms pain

I am 43 and am in so much pain during my pms. My bones hurt, my back and legs hurt to the point I can't sleep I feel I'm losing my mind during his time. My doctor wants me to take progesterone cream. Any advise or suggestions.

Re: Pms pain

Louie12: Go for it. It's becoming more common these days because of all the toxins we are exposed to. Did you get your hormones tested? Find out what your estrogen levels are. See if you're estrogen dominant. The progesterone is the Calming Hormone. Some of this might have to do with your adrenal glands. I just posted about it on another post what Dr. John Lee says about the adrenals in his book "What your doctor won't tell you about perimenopause". It's a load of information.

You could also try doing some yoga or stretching exercises. What about fibromyalgia? Have you been checked for that?

Also, get your vitamins checked. Increase vit B6, B12, magnesium, selenium, and maybe even calcium and Vit D. Drink lots of water. Do you get any relief from using a heating pad? How about a massage? Some people get relief from Black Cohosh and Black Walnut. You can find them at a healthfood store.

Hormones will do a number on your body for sure. They're also more responsible for brain function than you know. They play a big role in nerve function. Read some of my other posts.
