Those symptons could well be depression. They can be very unpleasant and spoil your daily life. You can't help it and it doesn't have to be caused by anything in particular, and no matter how much you try and motivate yourself you can't always get rid of it on your own. I reccomend you speak to your GP, there are several (very safe) medications they can prescribe you that can have you feeling much better in the space of a month, and for as long as it's necessary to take them. The problem might be bought on by puberty and the fact you're a growing teenager, but don't just wait to grow out of it and be miserable - it might take years. Get the doctor to help you. If you are depressed, it might seem a hard state to get out of but you'd be amazed at the helpful effects that the medication to treat it can have. I know because I once suffered something similar to depression. Good luck.
thanks but i darnt go to the doctorr .. incase he/she thinks im pathetic or whatever and then my family would find out and they have enought to deal with x
Hi, my 13.5 year old daughter has suffered with heavy bleeding and irregular periods since starting aged 11.5 years. Our GP has prescribed medication to reduce the flow which has worked well. Since starting High School she has suffered from anxiety, mood swings, periods of hopelessness, depression, severe sleep disturbances, lack of concentration - I could go on with the list of symptoms for PMDD! We consulted the GP again and she has advised looking into the condition more and monthly charting of symptoms to see if a pattern is occuring - all good suggestions. She suggested that we try alternative treatments to start with before venturing down the route of hormone treatments. My questions are: Has anyone experienced the same or similar with a teenager? Any suggestions for alternative treatments? Any other suggestions/comments? Thank you for taking the time to read my rather lengthy post, I would be really grateful for any comments.
I have had this condition since my teens and it is very hard as the only real cure is a total hysterectomy and ovaries removed which is out of the question at such a young age. I am 45 now and have suffered dreadfully my whole life with pmdd. Your daughter is lucky you have seen this as mine was ignored and I had a life of depression and drugs to try to combat it. If her symptoms disappear after day 3 of her cycle then she almost certainly has this condition. The thing that triggers it is progesterone. Women like us cannot tolerate the dips and highs in progesterone and this results in symptoms like mine and your daughters which come under the 'pscychiatic' label, it is very unfair. I hope she sees a hormone specialist who can maybe control the progesterone levels in your girl. Good luck and you'e a good mum for looking for answers. She REALLY doesn't mean it if she says mean things or talks about being better off dead, these suicidal moments are just the result of our coping mechanism not being able to cope with any more. The pain is so real, you cry like all your family just got killed and at that moment, you REALLY do feel that sad. It's really hard. Best Of Luck.
I have a 15 year old daughter, who is suffering with depression, has been diagnosed with a school phobia, as we were unable to get her to go to school. She is often unable to sleep at night, and goes to sleep in the early hours and will then sleep all day. I noticed that it seems to be worse just before her period is due, now I am wondering if this could be what is causing it, having read the symptoms. I asked the doctor once before if it could be related to hormones, and he said it could possibly make it worse. I think I may have to get this investigated further - it is such a difficult thing to live with whatever is causing it. I would rather be suffering myself & take away all the pain from her.
