    I found that any kind of stress on my body caused the symptoms to be worse, including my period.

      August was 1 year for me. They say it takes a full year and I believe it. I feel back to normal now. My first 2 months were terrible and I thought I was dying. The next 6 months was very up and down. Around the 9 month mark, I started seeing a real difference.

      It takes a minute, but eventually you will get back to normal.

    Hi Katelyn,

    Yes, the symptoms are always worse right before my period. In fact, when this all started I thought I maybe had something hormonal going on because I was only noticing the symptoms the week prior to my period. I'm not sure if the immune system drops a bit before our periods or if our periods just add stress to the body and make existing issues worse-but I can tell I am still not 100% better because I definitely still feel super weird before my period. The muscle weakness is worse or comes back and my PMS symptoms are exaggerated.
