A well-known fact is that pms depression is connected with the menstrual period. As the result of hormonal changes in the body or/and because of lowering of serotonin level in the blood, whole condition of the body and of the psychological atmosphere is also not of the high level.
The only way to identify pms depression symptoms is to observe them and according to the woman’s report, the doctor can say that it’s the pms depression symptoms. Actually, this report is made based on the symptoms for 2 or 3 menstrual periods, otherwise, it’s impossible to say that this form of depression is pms depression exactly.
In this report there should be mentioned daily symptoms. As a result the doctor makes the whole picture of the whole menstrual cycle and of pms period and symptoms particularly.
The most frequent pms depression symptoms:
1- Mood swings
2 – Irritability
3 – Burst of anxiety
4 – Alcohol intolerance
5 – Feeling of hopeless condition
6 – Tearfulness
7 – Fatigue
8 – Nervous tension
9 – Changes in the appetite (either loss of appetite or overeating)
10 – Headaches
11 – Breast tenderness
One should mention that it’s impossible to enumerate all the pms depression symptoms as they are quite individual. That’s why to point out own pms symptoms, a woman should report all the changes I her body and mood for 2 or 3 monthes and, surely, consult a doctor.
All the symptoms appear about several days (sometimes a week or even two) before menses. Surely they should disappear after menses. In case they still are at present, it’s not pms depression symptoms. They are likely to be symptoms of neurosis and depression not connected with menstrual cycle.
Most women suffer from mood changes, irritability, anxiety and tearfulness. These symptoms are most common for all the women to consult the doctor. Physical changes in body and hormonal level in the blood causes headaches, breast pains, changes in appetite, muscle spasms and so on. In that case, especially in case of terrible pain (either headache or back pains), there is special treatment to relieve the pain.
One should remember that pms or PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) are not only psychological changes, but whole changes in the body and blood. These changes should be taken carry of and reported for further treatment if it’s needed. These symptoms are observed and reported but interfered with clinical treatment only in case of real bad condition of the body and their severe character.
The woman shouldn’t buy remedies and medicines by herself without consulting a doctor and without making special pms symptoms schedule. Otherwise, pms depression symptoms can be easily mixed up and mistaken with a more dangerous illness. By the way, a woman should feel whether these symptoms are connected with menstrual cycle or quite similar to pregnancy symptoms. In many cases they are quite similar. And this is one more reason not to institute therapy by her own but to consult the specialist.
