menstrual cycle and sx

I was wondering if any of your sx get worse just before and during your cycle?  I think mine may.  I think I'll start paying closer attention to sx and cycle to see if there is a relation in severity.

I certainly experience this.  I sometimes back down on my antibiotics at this time to help minimize it, but that only helps a small bit.  I honestly dread it each month.

However, this is not specific to Lyme.  It can also happen with fibro, CFS, and autoimmune diseases.  (I'm sure the list goes on.)

yes - I feel a lot worse leading up to 'cycle' - I think it is a lot to do with more fluid in my body at this time.
