monthly cycle related to anger?
given I live with noisy neighbors in my apt. bldg and can't fall asleep when I want to... I was just doing some research and am thinking maybe my outbursts and anger are related to my woman's monthly cycle too.
PMDD is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Like less severe forms of PMS, premenstrual dysphoric disorder follows a predictable, cyclic pattern.
Emotional symptoms are generally present, and in PMDD, mood symptoms are dominant. Substantial disruption to personal relationships is typical for women with PMDD. Anxiety, anger, and depression may also occur. The main symptoms, which can be disabling, include
feelings of deep sadness or despair, possible suicide ideation
feelings of tension or anxiety
increased sensitivity to rejection or criticism
mood swings, crying
lasting irritability or anger, increased interpersonal conflicts; typically sufferers are unaware of the impact they have on those close to them
apathy or disinterest in daily activities and relationships
food cravings or binge eating
insomnia or hypersomnia; sleeping more than usual, or (in a smaller group of sufferers) being unable to sleep
feeling overwhelmed or feelings of being out of control
increase or decrease in sex drive
increased need for emotional closeness
Common physical symptoms include:
breast tenderness or swelling, heart palpitations, headaches, joint or muscle pain, swollen face and nose
an altered view of one's body - a sensation of 'bloating', feeling fat or actual weight gain.
