I got my period 5 days early and I have been very tired lately during the day with a little back pain what could be the cause of it?

Some possibilities: An early menstrual period may be caused by changes in hormone levels, which can be due to anxiety, stress, overworking, intense exercise, fatigue, or excessive weight gain/loss. If pregnancy happens, a bit of spotting sometimes occurs 9-14 days after conception, and may seem to a woman that she's starting an early period. An ob-gyn doctor can check, if symptoms are worrisome or recurrent. ...Read more

You're on the right: track, I think. If you are deconditioned from lack of exercise, the symptoms may be especially noticeable during your period. Try to walk 30 minutes daily, especially leading up to and during your period. Eating some lean protein and whole grains at each meal helps energy, and eating 4-5 small meals spaced through the day can also help. Try a multiple vitamin and drink water, not coffee/pop/juice ...Read more

What blood work?: Blood work typically doesn't look at vitamin and mineral levels. Before giving her pills, ask the doctor to specifically check her iron, folate, B12 and vitamin d levels. Then you will know if she is low and can give her foods that contain what she needs. Avoid pills whenever possible. ...Read more
