PMDD

I was diagnosed with PMDD a few years ago, as my PMS had become more than an inconvenience in my life. It was incapacitating. I started a low dose of antidepressant for my late luteal phase(basically, a little bit after ovulation) and it really has helped. I rec. that if your PMS is severe enough to really disrupt your life, that you ask your health care provider for information regarding this. You don't have to suffer like this. I still do have some minor PMS symptoms, but I am much more stable emotionally at pms time. Remember that the physical symptoms do not cease with antidepressant therapy- for those you can take ibuprophen (acetaminophen has been shown to be less effective) and other rememdies for the discomfort.

Acupuncture, healthy diet, exercise

I get angry for no reason, very grumpy at everything and everyone.. i get tummy cramps. House has to be perfect, get upset if it's not.

I have found that acupuncture really helps for me... Once I feel my PMS coming on I start taking my herbs... and I and my kids and hubby have really seen and noticed a difference... also i cut out on things like ... coffee, sweets and try to eat lots of fruit and veggies... and no read meats. Also go 2 the gym for a lovely workout.

PMS on a Construction Site

I am a lucky girl who works in construction, so I get to spend my PMS days around a bunch of, er, well, you know, construction guys, who normally I can handle. However, during PMS I have a really hard time not being a man-hater - which is completly not the woman I am!!! I drop tools, feel dizzy on my ladder, can't concentrate on what I am doing, and because I am PMSy and self-conscious, I agonize over how my tool dropping and decreased production reflect on myself as a representative of the woman workforce, in the eyes of those aforementioned men. I have walked off a job only once due to PMS rage, albeit there were serious problems with the treatment I was recieving from a man I worked with. I just wish I could have handled the situation better, instead of allowing PMS to make me cry and storm off!!!

Anxiety with PMS

Since I have lost just about 70 pounds, I am more confident about myself. You see when I was much heavier, I used to suffer from I believe was social anxiety. I felt like everywhere I went the world was looking at me because I was so unattractive. I would always either hold my head down so I wouldn't have to look at people who I felt was looking at me or completely shy away and wouldn't want to go out at all. However, when I lost weight and got down to 115 pounds, I started getting positive feedback which led me to start feeling good about myself. To make a long story short, about seven days before my period starts, I start feeling the same anxiety again. I don't want to look at people or go out anywhere. I don't feel attractive during that "PRE" time and my weight goes up about 3-5 pounds. After my period does finally start, it seems as though these symptoms go away.
