: Thanks to all who responded about the period thing. I've just noticed that I get more achy and lethargic every 4 wks or so. I also finally discovered the pattern. It's nice to know I'm not crazy or imagining things!
: I hope you all have more understanding husbands than I do! I think he thinks that it's an attention ploy or something that I should just "get over". I don't usually say anything to him, when I'm having a bad time of it.
: Sorry to vent on ya'll. But thanks for listening.
Ali, Sorry your lifes partner isn't understanding of your situation. Has he been given info. to read on the subject? Has he looked up other web sites that explaine about fms? Having a partner that is not understanding can cause problems. I know of a couple of divorces because the partner was not interested in understanding what they could not see and you don't need to get depressed. Knowledge is understanding. Maybe you can take him to the doctors office with you so he can help him understand. I have found that vioxx at that time of the month has helped with the extra symtoms. It hasn't done much though for the fms. I start a few days before its due. Good luck and take care, Kim
