While dieting and exercising a lot, I still got my period but my flow was light and I had minimal cramps (truly glorious). I did 3-4 weeks of refeeding in April and my temps are up to high 97s at least; I’ve even gone over 98 a time or two. My IBS is gone, anxiety is gone, mood is more stable, weight is up but whatever, I’ll take it in exchange for not having intestinal cramps every day. However, I’ve experienced the opposite of what most women seem to when they refeed- my periods are so painful, it’s crippling. The last time I was able to just make it tolerable by taking two advil at the first sign of cramps, then two later. They were still very painful, but I was able to function. My flow isn’t heavy, and I don’t get ridiculous cravings although the need to eat is a strong biofeedback signal that I heed. My breasts get pretty tender and sore about two weeks before I get my period And stay that way until it’s over (I’m guessing it’s post-ovulation), I get a little emotional but that’s it- no crazy psycho episodes. The pain is really the only thing that sucks right now. Any ideas?July 18, 2013 at 11:19 pm #9487Matt StoneKeymaster
Talk to my girlfriend haha. She went to the hospital a couple times the period pains were so severe when she began refeeding. We started calling the pains “Tebow,” in honor of the immaculate conception.
If all the other metabolic signs are clearly improving, keep moving forward. It took her many months to resolve this, and if it wasn’t for me there pointing out all the improvements she might not have continued long enough to get past it.
Re-read the part I wrote in Diet Recovery 2 called “Menstrual Mayhem” and you’ll see this is all quite normal.July 19, 2013 at 8:58 am #9509thecanvasParticipant
Dude, just knowing that it’s not unusual at this stage of the game is all I need. I’ll go back and look at DR2 again. I’m really not surprised about it since it used to happen in high school, but this time it’s not being indirectly addressed with undereating or absurd amounts of exercise. Thank you!July 19, 2013 at 9:58 am #9520Matt StoneKeymaster
I went back and re-read it myself. I guess I didn’t say anything specifically about pain. But I should have knowing how rough it was for my girlfriend.July 20, 2013 at 2:07 pm #9607PollyParticipant
Oh wow, I’ve just had the period from hell! I am 3mo postpartum as well, though, so I thought it was only because of that. This last month I’ve made more effort to eat more. Maybe this is normal for now…July 23, 2013 at 9:47 am #9831in.pursuit.of.balanceParticipant
I probably should have read this first before posting a new topic about pretty much the same thing.
I’m typing this, while camped out on the toilet with burning poo and period pain from hell. What was even worse was it taking me forty minutes (normally ten) to walk home from work (where apparently I was so pale someone thought I looked like I was having some kind of alcohol/drug withdrawal) in such horrible pain that I had to curl up on the ground and cry a few times on the way.
So, I feel your pain :( It sucks. And I’m not sure I have enough improvements to convince myself it’s worth it. My digestive symptoms and bloating are worse than ever (after 1 1/2 years!), mood only marginally better, and have strong cravings for alcohol. But now I’m just whining. Boo me.December 19, 2020 at 8:08 pm #18417HersisParticipant
most of these conditions are connected with the inflammation in the cochlear nerve. This nerve is also called the acoustic neuron. This neuron transmits electrical impulses that allow hearing and localizing sounds. Inflammatory process in cochlear area can result in tinnitus, hearing loss, and other serious conditions with https://femadata.com/ring-relief-ultra-review/
