I have exactly this (I don’t particularly think it’s weird) 

 

but my weird one is that that I get incredibly horny on my period 😂 sad times!

I’m also a bottomless pit on my period!

The worst uncommon one for me is thigh cramps. The tops of my thighs just kill the first few days!

Yes! I also get insatiably hungry when I’m on my period! I also get really, really sore boobs! Is this normal? I don’t know! But I think it’s weird.

Thigh cramps for the first few days of my period. Sometimes before my period m boobs are sore especially in the morning. And just the general feeling really rundown and tired but luckily it usually lasts for about 2 days maybe 3. I also get this craving for soda which I don’t normally drink.

Sometimes I’ll just crave lunch meat like crazy. 
I haven’t had meat in nearly 13 years now so.

I get a touch of insomnia. I’ll have 1 sleepless night during the week.

aharcam :  I get thigh cramps too!! Usually it comes before I get full blown abdominal/back cramps.

Horrible cystic acne. It’s the WORST. Happens the week before my period, and takes half a cycle to clear up. Currently going through it. -_-

Curring our dairy helped a HEAP with it though – went from 5+ big suckers to maybe one or two. But yeah. Cystic acne. Literally invented by Satan.

My weirdest is probably hot flushes as if I’m going through menopause! I also get nausea, headaches/migraines, and I feel super dehydrated as if all the water has been sucked from my body, it’s weird haha

I always get a little ulcer on the exact same spot on my tongue the day before I get my period and it goes on the last day/ the day after. Very weird!

ash101 :  Cysts are the devil.  Have you tried Renee Rouleau Anti-cyst treatment?  You put on a super thin layer as soon as you see/feel the cyst developing and it’s like damn MAGIC.  Mine disappear overnight and stop in their tracks.  If you use it on a current large cyst it seems to bring it to the surface to resolve a bit quicker…i still had to get mine injected by a derm though since they were doozies.  Its expensive but worth every penny for the peace of mind.  The product is almost water consistency so I find it lasts quite a good amount of time.

I end up with super sonic hearing. I can hear conversations happening between the ice cream tub in the freezer, the chip packet in the pantry and the white wine in the fridge. I can hear them talking amongst each other about me and wagering bets as to which one of them will be devoured first. Sometimes just to shut them up I devour them all at once!! 😜

I have an IUD so no periods for me but I can tell when I’m PMSing because I get fiery hot feet! I could be freezing cold but my feet will be red and hot to touch. SO has actually poured me an ice bath once and the skin was super cold to touch but they still felt really hot to me. I also get thigh cramps (feels like growing pains). 

A few other symptoms that I consider ‘normal’: My appetite increases, as does my “hanger”  lol. I crave sugar like crazy and I’m completely exhausted for a goo 3-5 days.
