Hey superstars. I’ve got an issue that’s on my mind because, well… it’s happening as I type, and I’m kind of curious to know if this is normal or not. (just as a heads up: I’m FtM trans, male pronouns if you please!)
So I’m a day late for my period. I’ve gotten all the symptoms I usually get- body achiness, moodiness, sore boobs, and there is never enough food when I’m right on top of my period. Specifically, never enough carbs, heh.
I’m pretty sure that’s all normal. But I’ve always had one symptom and I’ve never seen or heard another vagina owner complain of this: severe leg pain. I know for a fact that I need to wear a pad to bed tonight, and I also know that my period is going to be painful as all getout this month, because my legs hurt badly enough that I can barely bear weight on them. This always happens 24-48 hours before I start bleeding.
Acetomenophin doesn’t help, but NSAIDs do, if that matters at all.
So, in short, two questions from that. The first is a simple, is this normal? Anyone else go through this?
Second, is this something to worry about? I would imagine not, since this has been happening for years, but I’ve lived with symptoms I thought were just “one of those things” when they were signs of something more serious, so I’m more uncomfortable hanging my hat on it nowadays.
