the hormones which are released to cause the shedding of the uterine lining facilitate inflammation, and that works throughout the body, not just on the uterine lining. if you have an old injury, it will flare up pre-menstrually. those with a bad neck get a headache; I get a sore right knee, back injury causes back pain. Being sick can bring on the same phenomenon. The period itself doesn't cause the problem.
