PMT - Very achy thighs?

I've never really had bad period cramp before but the last 6 months its getting bad for 2 days before I come on I get really achy things - it feels like flu and was so bad last time I couldn't do anything all day. Has anyone any experience of this? Can anything help? It seems to be getting worse each month. I'm 40 so am also wondering if I'm heading towards the menopause although periods are very regular to the day.

My legs KILL me before I come on. I get no cramps in my stomach, it's all in the legs. They feel so heavy. It usually stops when I actually come on though.

yep - achy area too! Feel like I've been kicked between the legs. Nice...

Thanks, glad to know I'm not on my own, strange though. I too get no cramps in the stomach.

Oh, I do get stomach cramps. And my bowels disintegrate!

Lucky, lucky me grin

Yeah I get irritable legs and was awake loads with them last night - best thing is to invest in some Mag Phos 8 tissue salts (Boots chemist) for cramps and get some agnus castus tincture for peri-menopausal PMT symptoms.

In traditional Chinese medicine the 2 main Earth energy channels run down the legs and can become stagnant leading to achey legs - you could try brushing down your legs towards your feet and gently bunching up your hands and patting your legs up and down. Might sound mad but it works - also some good stretches for the leg muscles will help.

Thanks everyone, yes I too had the squits last time! Also now get zits - not only am I hit with being 40, divorced and teenage acne! Great.
