Re: daughter suffers every month
Sounds like typical PMS. Beside the drastic mood swings associated with premenstrual syndrome, women complaining of PMS may suffer from mild to severe abdominal or back pains, upper leg cramps, tenderness and swelling of the breasts, acne like blemishes, migraine and sinus headaches, swollen glands, a craving for sweet or salty foods, loss of appetite, fatigue, constipation, swollen hands or feet, and/or an inability to handle alcoholic beverages.
The cause(s) of all this lacks clarity. PMS is linked to changing hormones during the menstrual cycle. Some women are affected more than others. Stress and emotional problems don't really cause PMS, but they can make it worse.
