Our Guide to PMS Symptoms
by John Gibb
Some women may be affected more than others by changing hormone levels during
the menstrual cycle. Also, studies have shown that stress and other emotional
problems do not cause PMS, but they may make it worse.

Because once started, in some cases the PMS symptoms will appear repeatedly,
month after month, some women discovered that if they chart their symptoms for a
few months, they can identify these patterns and predict the course of their cycles.

There are many PMS symptoms that can affect women, but it is not mandatory that
every woman will witness all of the PMS symptoms. And the intensity of the
symptoms will also vary from woman to woman.

The most important PMS symptoms are mood changes and mood swings (such as
irritability, depression and anxiety, outbursts of anger and states of confusion mental
fatigue). Women may also witness insomnia and changes in libido and other physical
behavior (such as overeating and food cravings, especially for salty or sweet foods).
Because these PMS symptoms are hormone related, the woman may witness acne
bursts, bloating sensations and abdominal pains.

Other PMS symptoms include headaches, migraines or breast swelling and pain. If the
person has suffered from asthma, the symptoms may aggravate during these
periods. Other chronic medical problems can be aggravated during PMS, such as
arthritis and ulcer.

The PMS symptoms are closely related to both the woman's body and mind state,
she may witness difficulty with coordination and as a consequence the woman can
be more prone to accidents.

PMS symptoms often worsens over time and as symptoms become more
prolonged, the symptom-free portion of the cycle shrinks. There is good news, as
most women only witness small to moderate PMS symptoms and they can be
treated with medicines to compensate the body's hormonal imbalance.

If you witness any of the above PMS symptoms, be sure to consult a specialist, as
he or she is the only one to correctly diagnose you and to set your right treatment.

The Premenstrual Syndrome (or
PMS) is a group of symptoms linked
to the menstrual cycle that can occur
in the week or two weeks before
your period (menstruation or
monthly bleeding). These PMS
symptoms go away after the period
starts and they can affect
menstruating women of any age.

Medics have not yet settled upon the
exact causes for PMS, but they have
established that it is hormone related
and to hormonal activity during the
menstrual cycle and it manifests itself
differently from woman to woman.
