    Hi Dear OP,

    It could either PMS [Premenstrual syndrome] OR PMDD [Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)]

    While PMS is very common, PMDD occurs only in 5-8 percentage of women. Generally to control both, little bit of exercising, eating healthy food, trying some realaxation techniques and also planning ahead so you do not have to take up very complicated/important/stress inducing tasks at work during your period[If you are working]helps..

    But if you have terrible mood swings, it could be PMDD, in tht case its advisable to check with your doctor and take some medicines, absolutely no need to suffer additionally every month.

    I ve copied symptoms of PMDD from wiki, might be of some help for self diagnosis.


    Take care,
    IMe

    PMDD Symptoms
    Emotional symptoms are generally present, and in PMDD, mood symptoms are dominant.[SUP][6][/SUP] Substantial disruption to personal relationships is typical for women with PMDD.[SUP][6][/SUP] Anxiety, anger, and depression may also occur.

    • increased intense sensitivity to rejection or criticism

    • rapid and severe mood swings, bouts of uncontrollable crying
    • lasting irritability or anger, increased interpersonal conflicts; typically sufferers are unaware of the impact they have on those close to them
    • apathy or disinterest in daily activities and relationships
    • difficulty concentrating

    hi IMe and all,
    thank you so much for your reply, it is really very informative. I will google for home remedies before going to Doc. You know I prefer to stay alone in those days because nobody understands me :(

    thanks

    exercise, drink plenty of water, have food rich in magnesium and sleep it off.
    tell your family that you suffer from this..it helps a lot for them to understand.
