PMS is not normal. A medical doctor who actually knew something about womens' issues told me PMS is no a condition one has to live with.



If you have PMS something is wrong



More iften the not it is an easy fix



It is usually a vitamin deficiency - The B Complex



Many Americans' eat sugar ... it is in salad dressing and even some vitamins ... anyway, sugar leaches the B vitimans from our bodies



So, eat foods rich in the B Complex vitamins, don't eat sugar (Or any kind of sugar substitute – artificial or natural)



Maybe take a quality vitiman and your PMS should go away



I used to have pain that knocked me to the floor - mood swings, break outs, stomach upset, headaches, body aches, food cravings, bad dreams, hot flashes .....



Now, nothing

I become a royal bitch about 3-5 days before I start. I also get too emo about stupid crap on TV.

no cramping. insatiable need for chocolate. i do have mood swings, though. i cry easily, and also anger easily. my husband jokes that he needs to send me away to my Mom's house once a month for 8 days!

I have PMDD, so my PMS symptoms are insane. I have severe mood swings, hot flashes, cramps, achy joints, bloating and fatigue. To top it all off, I use the Paragard, which exacerbates my already unbearable physical symptoms. Basically, there are 7 days every month I should, for all intents and purposes, be locked up. I take black cohosh which seems to alleviate the mood swings slightly, but I haven't been able to find anything that works for the physical symptoms.
