PMS

What is Premenstrual Syndrome

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is one of the most

common problems affecting women. One-third to one-half of all American

women between the ages of 20 to 50 (as many as 10-14 million women)

experience PMS. The symptoms can begin 10 to 14 days prior to the

onset of the menstrual period and become progressively worse until

menstruation begins.

The symptoms of premenstrual syndrome are numerous, affecting almost

every organ system of the body. More than 150 symptoms have been

documented. Some of the most common ones are:

Irritability Acne
Anxiety Boils
Mood

swings

Allergies
Depression Hives
Hostility Cystitis
Migraines Urethritis
Headache Less

frequent urination

Fainting Rhinitis
Tremulousness Sore

Hoarseness
Weight

Joint

pain and swelling

Constipation Backache
Sugar

craving

Cramps
Breast

tenderness and swelling

 

It is common for women to experience more than

one of these symptoms each month. In fact, many of my patients report

have reported 10 to 12. PMS seems to touch every aspect of their

lives—from their relationships with family and friends, to

their work productivity, to their ability to take pleasure in their

own bodies.
