I seem to have an increase in my pain the week before my periods and wanted to know if this happens to anyone else. I'm 46, perimenopausal if anything, and I just know there is a connection. If anyone has any suggestions, please post. Yesterday and today were really bad. I managed to get worked in with my pain dr and received trigger point injections (for the first time) but I really don't want to have to go through with them every month. Thanks!
