I was just curious if any one here experiences more fatigue when on or near their menstrual cycle? I have felt sooo tired since Sunday and yesterday I could even see the bags under my eyes...and then later that evening I started my cycle. I started thinking and I realized I usually I do feel worse right as I'm starting it.

I always get more symptoms of my Lupus right before and during the first couple of days of menstrual. I've pondered how my hormonal changes may affect my Lupus but never really brought it up to my docs. I just figured thats the way it was.

I had the same problem and I asked my doctor about it and he told me that for women their hormone fluctuations do actually cause a change in their Lupus......not a good change. My was affected so bad during that time of the month that I was put on a pill that stopped me from having my period. I have to admit, not having that monthly hormonal change has helped the Lupus stay pretty consistent at this point. So, you are right......the two really are connected!

I am so sorry you are feeling yucky and I wish I could do something to make you feel better. I am sending you gentle hugs to hold you through the yucks during this time of the month :hug:
