Just wondering if anyone gets really bad pms and worsened symptoms since being diagnosed. I was diagnosed 8 months ago after having my first child and since then I've been really hormonal the week before my period but also extremely tired. Thoughts? X

Yes my symptoms are 100% worse the week before my period.

Period problems are linked with thyroid problems since it's all hormone related

This is one of the reasons I think I may have had an undiagnosed UAT for years as used to get serious PMS, irregular, migranes. So I so feel for you all you younger ladies. Please get help with this so you don't have years of ill health.

Until I was diagnosed and got my meds right, I had periods so heavy I couldn't leave the house and had to change every half an hour. Horribly painful and migraines that made me useless for two days each month thankfully all sorted now my thyroids under control.

Yes, I had migraines every month too and awful mood swings which my ex husband said he had enough off. So this really needs addressing.

Absolutely. If I ever have a daughter I will not put up with her going through that like I did.

Too right, there must be so many women out there having these problems each month and GP's just fobbing them off. This has to stop!

Does getting the right dose help or do you suggest something else? The week before my period is hell as I feel like the hulk trying to stay in control.

Getting my thyroid properly medicated is what fixed mine. Literally the straight away.

Interesting. Before I had my daughter (4 years ago) my cycle was extremely normal. I actually knew I was pregnant after I missed my period 1 day. Well I went back on birth control when I finished with nursing her and my cycle was really abnormal even on it! I would get my period after 2-3 weeks and even skip them. I switched birth control a few times and it still happened. I finally went off of it and now mine was really heavy and sometimes I have one after only like 2 weeks. It sucks.

I just started on thyroid medicine about 7 weeks ago. So I'm hoping to get that under control and see if it helps with my cycle!
