late or missing

Post by britney » 8 years ago

I'm new here and really haven't had a chance to look around. Forgive me if I am posting in the wrong topic but I really just have a question to ask the women.

Do you feel like you are late or even skip periods during a bad attack? I never have before but now that I'm two months into an attack and numb from my feet to my ribcage, I think this month might be one I wouldn't mind missing as I am late already.

I know when women get really sick they can miss their periods, just curious if that applied to MS as well?

hey there, i've never missed a period since i got diagnosed, but i can tell you that once i started taking magnesium for my ms symptoms, menstrual cramps vanished and have not returned!
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
