Every few months i struggle with pms. I know it is pms as i ovulate soon after.
I feel very agressive, irritable and anxious.
This is COMPLETELY out of character for me therefore is completely unacceptable for me.
It may only last a day but i feel out of control.
As i say its not every month, i go from this once month then am tearful another month but im always clumsy and i dont want this to keep happening.
Its not depression so AD's i feel are not the answer, just need something to take the edge off when it does happen.
Can any one suggest any thing or do you experience something similar, if you do then how do you deal with it?
Ps if any one wants fistycuffs......im ready!
Evening primrose oil or starflower oil work wonders for me. If you ask at Boots they will point you in the right direction. My Gynaecologist also recommends additional Magnesium - it takes about 3/4 cycles to really kick in but I have found it really works.
be careful with agnus castus, as it gave me a rash on my back, made me feel worse and can stop the pill working - when I bought it over the counter, nothing was mentioned, I investigated afterward (which was silly).
Thanks for the replies. I think i will try the evening primrose and starflower oil.
Ive got to do something because there is no way i want to go through another day like today it has honestly been the worst day i have experienced since i had ds and i feel sick whenever i think about it.
mine took about a month to 6 weeks but I find I get use to them and have to give them a break, suffer and start again. unfortuneately ive never found anything that works for good. The closest was 9 glorious months of pregnancy but I think thats a bit drastic.
