Question Flu-Like Symptoms During My Period

So weird it's day 1 on my period and I have fatigue and flu-like symptoms. I feel achy, jittery, it is hard to think and I have a slightly upset tummy, but not majorly its not too watery.. Plus a slight headache and I am not hungry, the idea of eating makes me slightly nauseous. Wonder whats causing it. (NO im not preggers, I have the monthly gift as I said and my husband had a vasectomy.)

It's gotten worse as the day goes on, but also goes back and forth from the point I feel almost normal to the point I feel like laying down and I have a vertigo like feeling. My period is pretty heavy today. It's hard to tell if this is from my period or from a virus I may have caught someplace since it came the same time as my period. The first 2 days I am usually tired normally anyways so that's not too odd, but the flu like feeling, minus congestion, is odd.

I took a Centrum performance vitamin, a Probiotic and some Aleve so far which helped some but not a lot, I am also sipping water to stay hydrated. Any ides anyone on what this could be?

Re: Flu-Like Symptoms During My Period

Do you use tampons? If so go see a doctor. It could be unrelated but those are symptoms to look out for when using tampons as there is a small chance of toxic shock syndrome which can be fatal.
