She is trying the magnesium as I got her some following a little research
on tinternet.

She was a bit surprised at first that I was concerned enough to do something but has now agreed that something needed to be done.
We are vegan and she does not drink any caffiene drinks as she BF dd til she was 3.5 then got to liking not having any in her system (something I cant do, the day never starts until after a very strong black coffee).

I will keep you all updated with the progress of the magnesium trial.

Thanks again.
Now have to work out how to change my MN nickname as the wonderful Mario is now off to Italy.......

God pmt is awful for all concerned. What a great dh you are! Get dw to try all of above. I found my pmt got so much better when I cut right down on caffiene. Everyone is different so it might be trial and error. Research as much as you can. It will be worth it if you alleviate the symptoms

There is a thread in geneal health called severe pmt, feel like leaving home every month (or something similar). It has some suggestions on it.

Magnesium made a huge difference to me. The other that helped (and I've seen many people mention in on MN) was low carbing/high protein diet.

Evening primrose oil will help with the sore breasts, she should also try magnesium.

My wonderful DW suffers with PMS every month. Symptoms include, bad headaches for 3-4 days, severe grumpiness to me and DD, very sore breasts for 4-5 days before period starts.
The sore breasts can be coped with but I hate seeign her suffer with the headaches and being shouted and snapped at for one week in four is really not funa dn not the life I wanted for me and DD,

She takes agnus castus throughout the month and is quite healthy with a good healthy diet and reasonable amounts of exercise.

She refuses to consider the pill as she wont have 'artificial hormones' in her body.

DO any of you wise and knowledgable MNers have any advice on how we can ease her suffering.
