Almost 85 percent of women in their childbearing years suffer from some form of premenstrual syndrome. Tender breasts, weight gain, bloating, abdominal pain, swelling in feet, hands and ankles, headaches, anxiety and depression are some of the most common symptoms.
The main reason behind PMS is still unknown, even after extensive research in this area. This medical condition can be diagnosed only by your physician and once you are diagnosed with PMS, your doctor would ask you to maintain a symptom log where you are asked to note any physical, emotional and mental changes that occur during a time span of two to three months. This helps to answer questions such as: What is the time duration of a symptom? When does it occur? Does a certain food or beverage trigger this symptom? Do you gain more weight at a certain time in your cycle?
