Some things that may help

I find that taking a VERY hot shower helps, as well as heating a water bottle in the microwave and putting it under my back. Also, eating healthy foods (IE: plenty of veggies, yogurt, fruit, etc) helps me feel less lethargic. I tend to crave sugar, but find that it makes me feel worse because I usually overindulge.

Sense and Awareness

Until recently, I never had any noticeable PMS. Last year my cycles were all out of whack while I was away at school, and when I came back home I found that the weird cycles had my emotions all crazy, too. So I was introduced to the world of PMS. I had my first gynecological examination and learned that I have fibrocystic breast changes, which means that my breasts get tender for a couple of weeks before my period. Strangely, I had never noticed this until this month!

Anyway, I get tender breasts and labile emotions, but other than that I don't suffer too much from PMS. I find that if I am paying attention to my cycle and know what is going on I am better able to attribute my strange emotions to their cause (hormones) and thus minimize the discomfort this can cause for others by simply being aware of it.

Meeting with a dietician helped!!

I had to meet with a dietician because I was eating everything in sight. She told me that my appetite had increased because my metabolism had also and once I have my period, the cravings will disappear. And she is of course dead on! As soon as I get my period, my appetitie returns to normal. However, PMS symptoms normally last 1 week. I crave carbs - potatoes, rice, bread, pasta - you name it. I learned to like brown rice and whole grain pasta. Those items are filling and stick with me a lot longer than white flour. My dietician recommended that I wait a few minutes if I have a craving to see if it will pass. If the craving is still there (in my case it usually is) I should go ahead and eat that food item, but slowly. This seems to work. In addition to that, taking a multivitamin along with Omega 3 really helps! I find that nowadays, my cravings are more under control.
