PMDD stands for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder. It is a rare component of Premenstrual Syndrome. PMDD, which affects about 5% of all menstruating women, is described by the American Psychiatric Association as a pattern of recurrent symptoms of depression and other negative moods that occur during the last week of the menstrual cycle. These PMDD symptoms are so severe that they markedly interfere with daily living. Some of the symptoms are:

 

  • Feeling suddenly sad, teaful, irritable or angry
  • Persistent and marked anger or irritability
  • Feeling of anxiety
  • Depressed mood, feeling of hopelessness
  • Decreased interest in usual activities or friends
  • Lack of energy
  • Difficulty in concentrating
  • Changes in appetite such as overeating or food cravings
  • Too much or too little sleep due to insomnia

I hate to admit this, but i'm pretty sure I have this. my mom has it, and I didn't think It would be passed down. I thought maybe I just had severe pms. Also, along with this, I get harsh cramps near my right ovary and ONLY my right. It sucks, because I have no desire to go out with friends, or do anything, I feel worthless, sometimes have terrible anxiety, and I feel the need to stay in my room, complete darkness, in heaps of blankets. (yes, even in the extreme Texas summer heat.)
