    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.

    Hi I have had the same problem only I have had them everywhere for 20 years. The whole time it has caused severe depression, anxiety and hopelessness. No one has seen me naked either. I just started dating again and hate when he touches me. I feel discussing and don't want to live like this forever. They have faded but you can still FEEL the gaps in my skin. Your not alone. I feel alone especially in summer when I am the only one wearing pants;(

    Hi!! I just started the depo for the exact thing (PMDD/ Bi Polar) and got the first shot about 2 weeks ago. I'm due to start in about 5 days and I'm still having same physical symptoms and today the same depression has kicked in. I'm feeling not so severe but I'm for sure feeling it (needless worry, sadness, hopelessness, feeling as if something bad is about to happen, etc...Can you remember how long it took for you to feel the symptoms? Did you have to cycle through a month or two? I'm trying me best to stay positive and remind myself that things take time, but I was completely out of control before and in terrified to put myself and even more my family through anymore of those outburst!! My husband has death with a lot. Thank you so much for your help!

    Hi ladies, I'm going through sheer hell with PMDD (Yet to be diagnosed) but I'm seeing my gynecologist on the 28th of this month. I most definitely have it! The last two days were particular bad! I cried with hopelessness, sadness, world was going to end and could not pick myself off the couch but for tears! Sleeping the day away seemed to be the only way! I have such a bad temper and rage with my poor husband every month! Surprised he's not left me by now! Paranoia is another problem, zero sex drive, complete disinterest in anything and negativity to the max! And today I've finally come on my period and as soon as I'm on its like the biggest relief that I almost feel like celebrating. My husband gets love and attention and I literally am a new woman....until the next time! Comforting to read I'm not the only one X sympathising with you all x

    I am seeing my doctor this afternoon for something else but I really want to talk to her about this. I was in and out of psychiatric hospital for 12 years with depression,ptsd and (misdiagnosed) personality disorder. I function to a high level the other weeks but then my pre-menstrual week I get like a fog around me that I can't break through. Historically all hospital admissions, not coping with work or family, self-harm - it has always been at this time of the month. I know have depression anyway but I have learned to manage the symptoms for the rest of the month. A couple of days after my period starts it is like someone has flicked a switch - my life is just the same but the hopelessness and desperation lifts. I am 29 and have suffered like this since I was 13. Hope my GP listens and accepts PMDD.

    Please go online and look up NAPS its the charity website for national association premenstral syndrome, it literally saved my life. It's free to use and I know that you will get such relief initially from reading through the forums. I will look out for you x

    I am 26 years old and I have suffered from PMDD for 10 years. It is completely ruining my life combining with other factors, however this affects me for around 10 to 14 days out of a month. I have absolutely no control over the symptoms which include hopelessness, severe depression, feeling suicidal(which I attempted over 2 years ago), cutting which is something I did recently as well because it drives me into a state of despair similar to the feeling of bereavement or mourning. During this time, I have also seriously physically and verbally abused other people. I experience extreme bouts of anxiety and paranoia during this time as well. I cannot work because of this. It is a total nightmare not worth living for much longer. My GP is clueless and keeps dismissing my symptoms.

    Please don't despair, sweetie! Please know you are not alone!!! I have suffered my whole life. It's genetic because my mother suffered as well. I'm trying to fight back and break the cycle. You can too! I know people don't talk about God in public a lot anymore, but I pray. I pray. I pray. That's first. And He gives me the strength, courage, wisdom, and HOPE I need to make it through each day! Next, in the U.S., there are several companies with herbal/vitamin supplements you can use!!! They work!!! I've been using Women to Women (http://www.womentowomen.com/)! I use the menopause herbal/vitamin regimen not the pms one! It works! It takes a few weeks to get in your system. Then everything begins to get better. PMS Comfort also has some products that are similar. Lastly, a website called cyclediet.com has me going through a food cycle which completely makes a difference! You need to be gentle with yourself. You are loved and worthy! There IS HOPE!!! I will be praying for you!

    I think the key is one must have a driving need to stop - it is like an addiction - it is a quick fix for helping one to feel alive - like you are a part of everything going on around you and not just a dream or passing sceenery. I think what people forget is that there are so many things in life that virtually all of us feel we don't have any control over but this is the one thing ONLY YOU can control. That is a very powerful thing to realize when you realize it while lost in hopelessness and feelings of not being heard or understood! Just don't forget that the choice to NOT DO self harm is at least, if not more powerful, as making the choice TO DO self harm! I think sometimes self harm can turn into a rebellious act to shock others, kind of use it to manipulate others in our immediate world, but only each of us can know what the current motivation is. Personally, I think self harm may seem to help for a short time now, but, the effects will torment one for the rest of their days. I think the basic thought of "The devil you know is better than the the devil you don't" keeps us accepting things as they are (no matter how bad), keeps us in the same old rut. But, one will never know until one breaks free. Yes, it takes energy we don't seem to think we have and yes, it will seem daunting and an unattainable goal, and yes, it will take time and above all persisentence to achieve. Always putting one small seemingly insignificant goal in front of us at a time will provide the ability to accomplish the whole anchelatta realistically. What an accomplishment one can have - YOU did it! Personally, whoever that medical provider was that told that poor soul that it was ok to self harm "if its under control" just doesn't have a clue! Might want to look for another provider...

    I am nearly 22 and I think I may be suffering with this. The week before my period I am teary, I spend entire days some months just in bed crying, I get angry at my family and often find myself in heated arguments with my loved ones. I am currently on my period and the symptoms(teary, anxiety, tension, anger)have subsided a little, but not completely. I don't feel suicidal, which I sense from the other comments appears to be a significant symptom. However hopelessness and low self esteem, and a feeling of worthlessness are apparent. I am not sure if I am suffering from PMS or SAD, or even depression or bi-polar(as I don't constantly feel down). My confusion stems from having changes throughout my menstruating life so far. I had regular periods as a teen, with little mood or physical change, to having crippling cramps for a few days as a late teen(18/19)and pms symptoms... to then going on the mini pill(cerazette)and having no periods and occasional mood changes. I have had one break from the pill since starting it, during which my mood and cramps were bad. When returning to taking it I had irregular short periods and awful mood changes. I have recently come off the pill again and the psychological change was just as bad, if not worse. I don't know whether to go back onto Cerazette or find an alternative, I can't have a regular pill as I had migraines as a teen and have been advised to avoid. I am also very wary of needles and so the implant or 3 month injection would not be ideal. Can anyone give any words of advice before I speak to my doctor next week? I hope anyone else out there who has similar symptoms is able to find a cure!

    Everything that is being said here makes sense to me. My husband is about to move out as he's finally had enough after years of my moods.am pretty sure its pmdd. Been to the g.p countless times. They don't know what pmdd is and always go to anti depressants. I feel so deeply ashamed for the way I have treated my husband but I know exactly what the black fog is and the feeling of being completely irrational and out of touch with reality. I've recently spent alot of time researching and come up with some supplements that seem to be working so far but am still terrified things will take a backward step again. Currently taking evening primrose oil magnesium calcium, bit b6, fluoxetine. Good luck to you allx

    Hi! Thank you all for sharing your stories and spreading encouragement to all of us who are struggling!! :-) So many of your stories really touched my heart and made me feel, I'm really now alone! As, you do when you have such a rare terrible disease. So here's a little of my story... I am a 23 yr old female. I live in Cleveland, Ohio. I have been struggling with this horrific disease PG for 5 years now, but was just recently diagnosed within the past year! I have seen over 20 doctors and none of them knew what was wrong with me and flat out told me they have never seen anything like my case and didn't even want to start! Then, finally I found a good dermatologist at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio. We have tried close to 20 treaments and not one has worked yet!! But, she kept working with me and trying and never gave up on me, which any other drs. have never done! As, of right now, I inject 40 Mg Humira weekly and 1 take 15 Mg of Methotrexate every week. And so far has made very little, if any progress. I am on a total of 15 medications all due to illnesses caused from this disease. Including I have to go see a pain management dr because my pain is so unbearable from the time I wake up, to the time I got to bed! I also, have several other medical conditions I have on top of this terrible disease alone such as, asthma, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, polysistic ovarian syndrome, etc. My diagnosis of PG is only 80%. I was also, told I could have a disease that may not have ever been diagnosed, which results in no treatment. To all you suffering from PG, I just wanted to tell you I am so sorry what you all are going through and it's not fair! I understand what's it's like to go to the drs and get stared down like you are an alien because they have no clue what you are going through! I know how bad the pain is, when you just cry all day cuz the pain is so overbearing. I know the feeling of hopelessness, when treatment after treatment fails or you have lapse in treatment and your heart is split in two! I understand when your so depressed, you just don't want to get out of bed or don't do the stuff u love to do because you don't have a passion for them anymore or maybe hoped you never woke up cuz things felt so bad! I understand all this because I have these feelings and even more feelings everyday of my life!! I have a beautiful 5 year old daughter and she is the only thing that keeps me going! I made a promise to her, that mommy was going to try her best to get better and I'm going to keep that promise, till the day I die! I want to make that girl proud and have her look back and see her mother is a survivor!!! Thank you all for letting me share and those, who read my story! :-) Good luck to all and take care!! -Amy-

    Omg I'm reading these comments with flash backs ... I honestly think the only cure for PG is to have a total bowel removal !! I had ulcerative for many yrs until suddenly I fell very ill with PG, ulcers covering nearly 50% of my body !! This was 14 yrs ago when we had no internet and no answers for a diagnosis ... Until a biopsy proved to be PG . I had no choice only to have a complete bowel removal and to be left with an ileostomy... My PG Stopped growing and I total healed up after a few months .. 14 yrs later I still have the scars & a bag stuck to my tummy ... But I'm a mammy to a 9 yr old boy x x Good luck everyone

    hello amy, i know what you are going through, our daughter Tracy has pg and has had for four years. We were told she is one of the top 5 severe cases in Australia.definatly not something we wanted to hear. Both legs and both arms, yes very very painful too much for anyone to endure, but endure she does. Every time we think we have got on top of it, it comes back two fold with new wounds.at present we are trialling an injection of a drug called stellar a so far so good.for the first time we are not getting new wounds every other day. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are going. We also have no contact with any other sufferer

    I am so grateful to have found this website/forum. I am 27 years old and have dealt with MAJOR disruptions due to my period about three years after, I began having it (age 15). Around the age of 17 was when I remember telling my mom every single month that I was just behaving the way I was due to my period and that it would stop on or about the second day into it. My parents would ask me if I was using drugs due to the drastic change in behavior. Of course, I was not and it was directly due to my pre-menstrual/menstrual cycle. I remember telling her this prior to the age of 17, but I think by the age of 17-18 is when I noticed the pattern, every single month. It would begin about ten days prior to my period. And, stop about two days in. I got pregnant and had my son at the age of 18. That is the happiest I have ever been in my whole entire life. I felt balanced and stable. I had no mood swings. No depression. No anxiety. No rage. It was bliss. I was happy and content. Shortly after I had my son, the same monthly cycle began happening. So for twelve days out of the month I had erratic behavior, was more sexually active, EXTREME mood swings, a welling of uncontrollable rage in me, extreme anxiety, feelings of complete hopelessness, every thing felt mundane. It was NOT normal. I had sought help through psychiatry and even regular PCP's but none of them seemed to be concerned. Maybe, I did not express to them the complete desperation I felt and how out of control and out of the norm it really was. I tried every SSRI they have. None of them worked. That was in my early twenties. I would say 20-23 I followed through dilligently with the doctors orders. It was incredibly frustrating returning to the doctor time and time again when nothing was seeming to work. I also tried the route of birth control pills...which COMPLETELY wacked me out and amplified every thing. However, this past December at the age of 27 I was desperate and sought help via medication once more. To deny the fact that I need some thing to stabilize/treat what is going on 12 days out of the month would be completely insane. I tried self help groups, and homeopathic methods, vitamins/minerals, exercise, EVERY THING. So finally in desperation and after talking with my signifcant other and close family member who I know well and trust, they urged me to seek help through a doctor again. So this past December 1013, I told the doctor exactly what happens to me every month, like clock work. I told her I was terrified to go the route of birth control again and I needed the one with the least side effects. I was absolutely sick with worry about putting chemicals in my body, especially when I know what the oral contraceptives have affected me in the past. The doctor put me on Depro Vera. I completely went off the deep end. It stays in your system working as an effective contraceptive for 90days but apparently the effects of it can last up to one year. I could not believe how drastically this affected me. I would be hysterically crying, then maniacally laughing, then filled with rage, frustration, irritation. I did not give up. I sought help with a womens doctor. I told her my extensive history in detail, and expressed to her my absolute, utter desperation. She again pushed me to try oral contraceptives. She told me Depo was the absolute worse thing that you can give some one with PMDD. She was right about that. I finally thought I had found some hope. She put me on Yasmin. I tried it for about five days. After the third day I felt a change in me. I pushed myself to take it two more days to ensure that was what was contributing to it. I immediately felt better about two days after stopping it. When I went back to her she laughed at me (literally) telling me I would not be able to notice a change that quickly. I know my body. I began crying and asking her to please help. I was open to try any thing at this point even if it meant delving back into things I had already tried in my early twenties. I agreed to try Trinessa, just to rule out that hormones do not work for me. AT ALL. I was terrified but took her direction. So the same thing happened with that as well. We tried the Yasmin and Trinessa simply to rule out that the birth control methods with hormones in them do not work for me. She then put me on Effexor. I am a full time receptionist for a District Manager of a marketing company. I have a lot of responsibilities at my job. I took the Effexor that evening, and the following day I was falling out continuously at work. My boss told me to never come to work like that again. He thought I was using drugs or had been out partying the night prior. I do not stay out late, I usually go to bed by 9 or 10 on a work night, and on the weekends (I work then as well) some times, eleven at the latest. When the pharmacist filled the Effexor he told me the side effects and warned me about the drowsiness/sedation or that some people experience not being able to sleep at all. I called that day I was falling asleep at work and asked if I could be experiencing that extreme of side effects due to the medication. He said yes. But just to rule it out, I took it again that night because I had the following day off, and sure enough I was completely exhausted the entire day. I returned to the doctor the following week, and she told me I was not following the medication regimen she was prescribing and did not feel she could help me. I could not believe this. The office manager actually came in and told me to leave the office, she would not do it herself. I recieved a notice in the mail from her telling me that was why. I do not take any narcotics or any thing addicting! I was DEVASTATED, and scared. Since I started my period I have had problems in relationships. Problems is an understatement. I have problems in the work place. I do not mean little hiccups. Any time I have been fired from a job, it has been right before my period. It is always ten days before, and two days in. The rest of the month I am balanced, happy, and stable. But during those 12 days I am out of control. I feel the change in me. I feel it overcome and overwhelm me. I hate it. I have been sent home from work two times at the job I am at right now, directly due to side effects of the PMDD. During those 12 days I am absolutely exhausted most of the time. I cannot drive for long periods of time. I cannot stay awake at my desk without falling out. I work 9.5 hour days on a computer which does not help. And, I do not get breaks. That is another issue in itself. My outbursts of rage scare me. I have a volatile temper during that time. I can relate to every post on this page. I need some feedback. I am desperate to find balance and some peace in my life. This has made my life completely unmanageable. I dread getting my period every month. The other issue is, I do not want to go on the medication that completely stops my period for 2 years or for 5 years...because within the next 2-3 years I would like to have another child. ANY AND ALL SUGGESTION AND FEEDBACK WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

    Im responding to someone elses question, but its good information, It was diazepam,  but unfortunately this is something Im not able to take for my job description...So I am actually just weaning off of it now, its only 10 mg so it should' nt be too bad, But I honestly wouldn't recommend it as a long term fix snice its very habit forming, I actually had to scream and be very tough with my physician about this because noone really takes you seriously unless they experience it.I also did lots of research and phone calls and made an appointment with an Endocrinologist (a dr. who specializes in hormones), I believe that Progesterone has alot to do with pmdd , a lack of progesterone. And I will tell you why.Last year I became pregnant ,but before I found out I was I was feeling so happy, no anxiety, things that would trigger my anxiety didnt even trigger it and I thought to myself something is not right, sure enough I was pregnant...then researched on the hormones that play a big role, sure enough Progesterone is at its high or remains the same w hen the egg does not fertilize. After pregnancy Panic attacks full blown, but anyways after we ovulate progesterone plummets and I believe that some women either are more sensitive than others when hormones fluctuate or maybe we are lacking way more of a certain hormone than other women do thats why others have just pms verses pmdd...Also google recent researchers on Pmdd, and sure enough one of them was linking progesterone to pmdd, I also heard great stories about women using natural progesterone vs synthetic my body is too sensitive to synthetic this is why I cant take birth control my blood presurre was very high. They say wild yams are loaded with progesterone. My point is that we as women should get to the root of the problem(if you can) even if its going to take time, but for now yes, if its that bad and your able to take diazepam yes take it until you can really find out what the problem really is, because I know its not easy at all. I will keep any of you ladies inf ormed if I do find

    ormed if I do find out what is my problem, I believe I will ! ,I have faith....Good Luck and dont give up ;) I know its tough trust me.
