I had a hysterectomy (kept ovaries) last November. I still have my hormones and I definitely feel worse about a week before my period would normally come. I get the headaches, etc. Interesting thing is that my headache pattern has changed since the hyster. I have a headache probably 2 days out of every week. So it's hard to follow a pattern if they're due to my hormones. I also wondered if my headaches were Lupus oriented, but all my blood work says my Lupus is dead quiet. I have absolutely no inflammation happening. So I'm chalking it up to stress, my Fibro and possibly my hormones, and most definitely changes in the barometer. I get weather related headaches BAD!
Where are you headaches located? I get mine behind my eyes and forehead mainly. I'd tell your Rheumy about these for sure. Headaches are so draining aren't they? I wish you well, sis!!
