mkoven Posted May 23, 2009 Report Share Posted May 23, 2009 I'm having my premenstrual ans struggles, but worse than usual. I don't usually do abdominal compression, as it's not very comfortable, but I was feeling so lightheaded, achey, blurred vision, short of breath, I went for it. I pulled out an abdominal binder and put in on as tight as possible, and pretty quickly, I started to feel almost normal. My doc had told me that some of the menstrual stuff is literally because the uterus is stealing from circulation and more blood is pooling there. So I guess I really am a leg and abdominal pooler. It's yucky being so wrapped up when the weather is warm, but it beats feeling like I can't get enough blood above the waist! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
