Symptoms of PMS

PMS has become the brunt of a lot of bad jokesguys even joke that they have PMS! It's not so unusual for people to blame PMS for other problems or illness. So it's important that you know if what you're going through really is PMS.


How to figure out if you have PMS

Keep a journal or a calendar. Write down which symptoms of PMS you get and when. Rate each symptom by how bad it ismild, moderate, or terrible and nasty! Then write down when you get your period. If you get the symptoms ten to three days before your period, and only during that time, and if they go away when your period starts, chances are that it really is PMS.


If you have the symptoms of PMS at all times of the month, you might just be having a challenging case of puberty. The good news is: Puberty ends! If you are past puberty and have PMS symptoms that hang on long after your period starts, you may have other conditions that need to be treated. For example, dizziness that lasts throughout the month is something that you should see a doctor about. If you feel sad or lose interest in fun activities for a long period of time, there may be something else going on besides PMS.


Use your common sense. Don't ignore any symptom or pain that goes on too long.

dont go telling me what hurts cuz i dont even think you know. I had to move and leave my friends behind and break up with my bf, then my cats ran awys we got two new ones mine died, my parents got divoriced, I get bullied by everyone, my dog might die cuz he has heart worms, I always feel like crap when I'm alone, and I doubt I'll ever find a guy who likes me. SO dont go saying it hurts well does your heart hurt as much as mine? I'm losing hope
