PMS: Pre-Misery Symptoms

PMS: Pre-Misery Symptoms
By Mary Howard RN

Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, yes it is real and exists in varying degrees in a large percent of women. We will talk about the symptoms, causes and treatment of this strange burden that women get to carry. If Eve just hadn't eaten that apple in the Garden of Eden! Oh well, since she did I guess we better find some ways to deal with it!

The medical diagnosis of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) occurs in as high as 25% of menstruating women. To have a "clinical" diagnosis, the identical symptoms must occur for 3 consecutive months. A much higher percent of menstruating women experience some form of PMS symptoms. Symptoms vary widely from one woman to another and from one cycle to another in the same person.

The exact cause of PMS is unknown. It is believed to be related to a decreased progesterone concentration during part of the female cycle. A stressful life appears to be related to the intensity of physical symptoms. PMS also occurs more frequently in women over the age of 30. Other theories or related factors that could aggravate PMS are vitamin deficiencies, mineral deficiencies, endorphin malfunction (like depressive disorders) and multiple psychological disturbances.

Symptoms that many women exhibit with PMS are:

Behavior changes - tension, irritability, mood swings, anxiety, crying, depression, and insomnia.

Signs of water and sodium retention - edema, weight gain, breast enlargement and tenderness, and abdominal bloating.

Fatigue - Palpitations, increased appetite, headache, and backache.

Other symptoms - Oliguria (increased urination), diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, recurrence of herpes and acne, conjunctivitis, sties, vertigo and plenty of others.

To understand why some of these symptoms occur, let's look at a woman's cycle over the course of a month, the hormone changes that take place, and some of the many functions of Progesterone in a women's body:

A woman's cycle starts the first day of menstruation. About halfway through the cycle (about day 14) ovulation (the releasing of an egg to move toward the uterus) occurs. Progesterone levels begin to rise two days before ovulation and also large amounts are produced just after ovulation occurs. Women are usually free of PMS symptoms during this phase. PMS symptoms can begin near ovulation, but usually after ovulation occurs. During the time after ovulation the uterus is preparing for possible pregnancy. If you aren't pregnant, then the progesterone levels drop and menstruation occurs. At the time of this sharp drop in progesterone levels is when PMS symptoms usually occur.

Other Functions of Progesterone include:

1. Helps the body use fat for energy

2. Helps regulate the thyroid gland

3. Has an effect on the brain's endorphins - so it works as an Anti-depressant.

4. Has an affect on sodium to water balance, so it keeps swelling and bloating from occurring. 5. It has a normalizing af...
