Good morning, I’m a 22 year old woman. I often experience symptoms of minor depression, insomnia, changes in eating patterns, excessive anxiety, fatigue, and mood swings when one week approaches the menstrual period and ends when the menstrual period is over. Is this symptom a PMDD symptom? Then how to deal with it temporarily before consulting directly with experts?

Hello Seieisha Izharius, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a collection of symptoms experienced by women before menstruation related to physical and emotional. The cause of this condition is still a hypothesis, which is related to the body's overreaction to changes in reproductive hormones. PMDD is also associated with low serotonin levels before menstruation (serotonin is a substance that helps transmit signals in the brain, which regulates mood, sleep cycles, concentration and pain threshold). PMDD symptoms include: mood changes, depression / despair, sleep disorders, stomach cramps, breast pain, easy fatigue, changed appetite, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, headaches, etc.


Other possible diagnoses are: anxiety disorders, or depression. It is recommended to try relaxation techniques and psychotherapy. Keep a diary to pour into your heart, increase communication with close relatives so you don't feel empty / alone / isolated which tends to trigger depression. Try to be open with the people closest to share the good and bad days of Sister. Although it is sometimes difficult to resist reluctance, exercise can improve mood significantly. Do gymnastics or jogging or walking for 20-40 minutes, 3-5 times a week (an increase in endorphins will improve mood). Enough to sleep 7-8 hours a day. If after making the above efforts you still encounter difficulties, there is no harm in consulting a psychiatrist, the doctor will conduct a directed history and provide therapy as needed ranging from psychotherapy to medication.


All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
