Hi,
guess only a medical person could say whether it is more that a down mood or pmt. However lack of sleep can cause down moods to deteriorate or be a symptom of something else, like depression. Would you consider going to the dr - especially if it affects you like this for more than a week or two?

I don't know only been about a week but it comes in waves. Wouldn't have problem seeing gp but don't really think I would like Meds tbh I hate tablets

Why don't you keep a little diary for a few weeks with your moods per day so that you can see whether it is period-related or not. If it is then things like evening primrose and magnesium can make a difference. If it is not it's worth a chat with your doctor but you dn't have to have meds straight away.
