Why do I get lower back pain with PMS?

There could be multiple reasons for back pain, around the time of your period:

1. Not drinking enough water – this can affect the whole body system, and is especially important around your period.

2. Circulatory problems can cause aches and pains – key symptoms are cold hands and feet.

3. Posture could be a factor – we tend to hold ourselves differently around our period – slouching etc.

4. Old injuries can flare up around the time of the month, as water retention can cause added inflammation.
