My major hypothyroid symptoms have been in check for almost a year and especially the past month or so because of an increase in my Levothyroxine dosage. That changed when my period came a few days ago. The symptoms I am feeling are not my normal PMS symptoms. I am so tired that my face and eyes feel heavy like a ton of bricks. I can't focus on any of my school work and I forget what I'm thinking about pretty frequently. My mental health feels shot because last night I was sobbing my eyes out and now today I don't feel any emotions. I feel like I am disassociating and sick with anxiety. I don't usually experience these things. The last time my mental health took a turn like this was the months leading up to my thyroid diagnosis.
So I guess my question is that do other people experience a severe increase in PMS/Thyroid/Mental health symptoms during their period? I know thyroid problems influence the flow/frequency/etc of someone's period but what about vice versa? Are there studies on thyroid function during menstruation? I'm seeing my Endo in two months so I'll talk to him about it but I just wanted to see what other people experience. thanks!
