Tiredness On Onset Of Period

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just dx at the beginning of the month and have been gluten-free for about four weeks. My digestive symptoms have been fine for the most part since starting the diet, but I do still feel exhausted about midway through the day intermittently. I am exhausted today and I know that I am pre=menstrual. This is my second cycle since starting the diet and felt the same way prior to my period then (which I chalked up to just starting the diet). This past summer as I was suffering the symptoms of what turned out to be celiacs, I realized that my GERD was much more pronounced when I was pre-menstrual. Anyone else having similar experiences?

Although my chronic exhaustion cleared up after about 6 months on the gluten-free diet, my PMS-related exhaustion hasn't improved much. I feel more or less like I've been hit by a truck almost every month. Sometimes it's extreme pain, sometimes it's more like I'm just DEAD. I think it's a little better since being gluten-free, but that seems more like I'm not just piling one exhaustion on top of another.

I find that gluten symptoms and PMS symptoms make each other worse. After healing and getting totally gluten free, I couldn't even tell when my period was coming anymore.
