What is premenstrual syndrome?

PMS is characterized by emotional vulnerability, a feeling of being down.
Many women get a bit cranky.
It used to be really bad for me. I had to take a day or two off of school every month.
here's a well written essay on all the symptoms.

As many as 90% of all women will have to deal with the aches, pains and emotional stress of Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS at some time during their reproductive years while 30% to 40% of all women will have symptoms distressing enough to interfere with their everyday lives. Some of the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome include abdominal bloating, acne, anxiety, backache, breast swelling and tenderness, cramps, depression, food cravings, fainting spells, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, altered sex drive, swelling of the fingers and ankles, and personality changes such as drastic mood swings, outbursts of anger, violence, and thoughts of suicide.  (+ info)

Any tips on how to survive Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?

Exercising releases pleasure hormones that actually make you happier then when your having sex. Eating right keeps your mind and body in good working oder and will help you get over PMSing faster.
I also suggest hanging with good friends more then family, because its easier to yell at a family member then a friend.  (+ info)

Am I having Premenstrual Syndrome?

I'm a 15 year old female who has had her period for 2 years. I usually don't get any PMS-like symptoms, just bad headaches, cramps, and tears during my period. My cycle is currently changing, but I'm expecting my period in the next 1-2 weeks. Yesterday I was starving and eating everything. Today I haven't even eaten anything because I'm not hungry, I also feel emotional and really fatigued. I usually don't feel this way this time of the month. Is it PMS? What can I do about this?

This is normal for some women. Your "period signs" are simply changing because you're older.  (+ info)

how can i deal with PMS (premenstrual syndrome)?

i really cant help it. i feel so irritated before i will have menstruation, like i don't like to talk much, im not on the mood to have some jokes or to handle jokes sometimes,. i don't like to be like that, hayssss....

Here are some things you can do to help with cramps:
- Eat bananas & pretzels
- Take a hot shower or bath
- Have a hot water bottle on yourself
- Exercise, if you can get yourself to do it.
- Some say masturbation helps with the cramping too
- Take a tylenol, advil, or ibuprofen
- Take other pain medications with the advice of a doctor who can give you stronger meds

Otherwise, you just have to try to live life. Don't let your period slow you down! Try as much as you can to forget about it, and do the things you would normally do in your day. Don't just sit at home and do nothing. These are the things that seriously helped me. It sounds kind of lame, but it helped me move on with my life when I'm on my period!

Hope that helps!

What do you think of the idea that premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a culture bound syndrome?

In other words, women who experience symptoms of PMS do so because our culture tells them that they should experience cramping, fatigue, moodiness, etc. at a certain time every month.

The mind is powerful and it's been proven that physical/physiological symptoms can result from purely mental beliefs.

btw, I didn't come up with this idea myself. It's been floating around the minds of doctors for years now. Here's the reference I found:
Johnson, Tomas 1987. "Premenstrual syndrome as a culture specific disorder." Culture Medicine and Psychiatry 11. 337-356.

It IS incorrect in my opinion to say that every time a woman is in a bad mood, overly emotional, or experiencing cramps that it is PMS. However, the constellation of symptoms are usually under the heading of "PMS". The medical community has named it and I do not believe it is a collective experience in that it is all encompassing; though certainly enough women experiencing the same or similar symptoms is a collective experience and thus leads to the diagnosis. I can certainly make myself feel better or worse but the fact remains that the symptoms DO occur at that time. I imagine that different cultures handle any type of illness, pain, etc., differently as much as they treat the symptoms differently (no treatment, holistic approaches, medication, symptom-specific treatment, etc.) Once when I told a gynecologist about a specific symptom (I was much younger then), he told me it was ALL in my head...yet many women I know experience the same symptom and said so without being asked about it specifically or provoked to say they did (and it is NOT a typical symptom of PMS - I will spare you the details).  (+ info)

I have a "female" question about Premenstrual syndrome and Acid Reflux?

I am 19 and I was diagnosed about three years ago for having Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and I have a weird menstrual cycle that I'm controlling with birth control and the doctor's help of course. I live with GERD on a daily basis, I fix my diet around how I feel and sometimes I just get too sick to eat.

My question is, could premenstrual syndrome make gastroesophageal reflux disease worsen for a few weeks before the menstrual cycle starts?

I will even take answers from males that have had wives, sisters, girlfriends, or friends or some kind of knowledge of both. I'm not picky. I just want some kind of idea about what's going on with my body.

I have acid reflux also, and mine always peaks and gets way worse before and during my period.  (+ info)
