PMS is No Joke

Posted: Tue, 26 September 2017, 16:45

It is believed that most women experience premenstrual syndrome or PMS symptoms in some form each month. These symptoms can be quite mild for some while for others they can be crippling to the point that it can affect their daily lives each month. Symptoms can be physical or emotional and behavioural. Common physical effects are:

  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain related to fluid retention
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Breast tenderness
  • Acne flare-ups
  • Constipation or diarrhoea

Common emotional effects are:

  • Tension or anxiety
  • Depressed mood
  • Crying spells
  • Mood swings and irritability or anger
  • Appetite changes and food cravings
  • Trouble falling asleep (insomnia)
  • Social withdrawal
  • Poor concentration

For most women, these symptoms last up to 4 days and are caused by a change in hormones and a chemical change in the brain. There are several things that can be done to help ease the discomfort. You can make like style changes such as adding exercise to our daily routine especially at the time of month you experience PMS. Reduce stress where possible by doing simple things like taking a bath, reading a book or doing yoga. Eating a well-balanced diet and reducing salt intake can also help reduce bloating. Research also shows that eating smaller meals more frequently can help with bloating.
