I am 42 and sometimes I get very tired and exhausted the week before and/or the week of my period. My period should start in a few days and I've been feeling pretty bad in the past days. Extremely tired, nauseous, no appetite, mild anxiety, palpitations. I am sure it's hormonal, but I don't know how to make it better. Tried acupuncture before but didn't help a whole lot.
Does anyone else get very tired the week before their period and feel fuzzy headed as though you've had really strong painkillers and aren't used to them?
I am so tired today, irritable and I feel zonked as though I've accidentally taken too much codeine (I haven't).
I'm 43 and my periods are wappy now with ones lasting 4 weeks then done only 5 days. My PMT is bad and I didn't used to suffer really.
