Hi. It seems like every time I have my period once a month, I suffer so much that I have to miss work because I cannot walk because the fibromyalgia is so bad (almost three days in one week). I am seeing a woman rheumatologist next month in NYC who has women’s interests in mind, but before then I will have another period. Does anyone know of a medication that can be taken or that you take that will reduce the fibromyalgia pain (not necessarily the pain from the period) during that time? I also have really bad periods maybe due to my hypothyroid disease. I do take Ultracet up to five times a day, but if becomes not as effective on my period. What possible treatments have worked for you? Has anyone heard of the medication that will stop your period? Has anyone tried it? If so, was it successful and what are the possible side effects of this medication, both short-term and long-term? Are they really bad? I am also open to alternative health options. Any ideas? Thanks!
