Thanks @WheresMySquishy 

 

Do you ever get headaches?

Re: Exhaustion

@Tiny_leaf   I get the occassional headache, but I tend to get them when I haven't slept, am on the wrong lens prescription, etc.
I hope you can feel better soon. Heart

Re: Exhaustion

I'm so sad to hear that @Tiny_leaf. Smiley Sad Headaches can be so awful. I used to have a few friends who struggled with really debilitating headaches.
Do you think anything has triggered them? It might help to keep a basic log of your activities for a day, when they started and your mood. There are also some apps that you can try to log your headaches.
Does anything make them better or worse?

Re: Exhaustion

@WheresMySquishy it's always around my period.

 

I want them to stop but apparently you have to be like 30 or 40 before I'm able to decide what happens to my own body because everyone's desperate for me to reproduce.

Sorry just.. frustrated.

Re: Exhaustion

Period sickness stuff is the worst I get really sick around then sometimes and it is awful. I also think it is awful that people with a uterus still don’t have the right to decide what happens with their own bodies simply because others think they know better and the patriarchy won’t just call it quits.

Re: Exhaustion

@Tiny_leaf   One of my friends experienced migraines around her period too and her GP ended up recommending a medication that helped her. It's a bit hard to know what causes headaches though. I've heard that mood and stress levels can also affect them and that some psychologists are specialised in treating headaches.

I know right?! It's so frustrating that we can have all these symptoms but have doctors who are reluctant to do anything about them due to our age and other factors. I don't think it's just something that affects young people either. A doctor tried to discourage my grandma from having knee replacements because he thought she was 'too old' and 'going to die soon anyway' (she was in her 70s at the time I think). She insisted on having them though.

Re: Exhaustion

@Eden1717 I know..

I'm old enough that I could get a tattoo or cosmetic surgery but as soon as it comes to my uterus I'm not old enough to know. Smiley Frustrated
