Menstruators with fibromyalgia who experience this? Day 1 of my cycle and about 80% of my body hurts to the touch since I woke up this morning. My skin hurts everywhere clothes are touching it. How do you deal with it? Losing my mind at work and unable to leave early 😬

      Truthfully I often call out on my first day. I find a warm bath feels good.

      Find anything to distract your brain. This feeling is unbearable but it helps me cope to have something else to focus on.

Some individuals with fibromyalgia have reported increased pain and inflammation during their menstrual cycle. Some find relief by using hot or cold packs, distracting themselves with activities they enjoy, or sleeping. Others have found that managing their diet can help reduce inflammation and pain during their cycle. However, severe menstrual pain could also be a sign of another issue such as endometriosis or ovarian cysts, so it may be worth getting checked out by a healthcare professional.
