Author Topic: hormones and pain relief?

I've been diagnosed with fybromyalgia. It gets pretty bad, especially since I already have RA. But I've noticed that my muscle pain is almost non-existent while I'm menstruating. I was wondering, is there a excess of a hormone during that time that might be causing my pain relief? I mean, I assume estrogen is high at that time, but is there anything else?

I'd appreciate any advice!
