Premenstrual Syndrome - Symptoms

Different symptoms of PMS are observed in different women, but not all women suffer from all symptoms. In most cases, every woman experiences few of the symptoms mentioned below:

Emotional and behavioural symptoms

  • stress or anxiety
  • sadness or depression
  • weeping
  • mood swings; irritation and anger
  • quarrelsome behaviour
  • change in appetite and craving for certain foods
  • difficulty in falling asleep
  • aversion to socialise
  • difficulty in concentration
  • insomnia or difficulty sleeping

Physical symptoms

  • mood changes and irritability
  • tenderness of breasts
  • acne
  • headache
  • body ache and joint pains
  • tiredness
  • water retention
  • abdominal bloating
  • constipation, diarrhoea or indigestion

Sometimes, the emotional disturbance and physical pain are so severe that they disturb the daily functioning of women at home or work. However, the severity of symptoms decreases with the start of menstrual bleeding. However, in some cases, it may continue with less intensity during bleeding days and get completely better after bleeding days. However, the recurrence of these disturbing symptoms every month can be annoying.
