    does anyone have worse FM symptoms with they have their period. I have noticed that I feel a lot worse during that time.

    everything is worse on my period, including my mood!:
    My thigh muscles hurt along with my lower back.
    I also get hot and cold flashes too.
    I'm really a mess at that time!
    I always warn my husband when the PMS starts ( usua;;y up to a week before my period)so he can stay away from me or risk the consequences!:)
    Take care.

    Everything got worse during that time, and I'm bad to begin with. So I went on Seasonale birth Control pills, and it made a big difference. Now there aren't such huge swings in
    all my symptoms.

    I get terrible the week before..I too get the pain down my legs and lower back..

    I always tell my drs. that it all gets bad then and they just blow me off..

    Well I go to the gyno in Mar. and I am not leaving till he fixes something...

    I use to only get bad then...now I feel like I am having my period alllll the time..I can't take it any more..

    Glad I'm not the only one..:)
