I seem to be dealing with something similar, my AF was almost a week early this month, my skin is behaving weirdly, but I don’t have my typical stress sensations (my neck is good, by back is okay – knock on wood) and I generally feel pretty calm – makes me worry a little if I’m in for a major attack in a couple weeks…

Meant2Bee:  Sometimes, our minds go into auto-pilot when we’re dealing with a lot of things. And sometimes when instead of dealing with the stress, we ignore it, our bodies give us the old STOP IT OR I WILL MAKE YOU STOP signal.

Best suggestions I have:

spend 20 minutes a day meditating

make sure to drink enough water each day

exercise even just a little each day

sleep

smile and reflect on the good things

 

All of these will usually help the body regulate stress. It’s sometimes difficult to realize that we’re not giving our bodies enough time to recoup. I know my body will shut me down more quickly these days if I don’t give it what it needs. Darn 31 year old body thinks it can boss me around. Oh wait, it can, and it does.

When is your wedding? Are you getting enough sleep? Can you take a weekend trip (even one night a half hour away) with no phones, computers, or wedding planning?

Meant2Bee:  I had a similar experience in that I kept getting cold sores in the months prior to my wedding (for me this is stress induced) even though I dake a pill daily that supresses them which had kept me outbreak free for a year.  It was so weird because I really didn’t feel stressed about the wedding at all and wasn’t really putting that much work into it.  I was worried there was something wrong with my immune system so had some testing done and everything was fine.

After the wedding passed the outbreaks stopped.  So I guess on some psychologoical level I was more stressed than I realized?  Weird.

Might be worth checking with your doc to make sure everything is ok, but the best you can do is take good care of yourself.  Sorry you are dealing with this!
