Unhappy NEED PMS HELP - strange symptoms

I have been tracking my PMS symptoms for the past 3 months, and I am noticing a pattern that I am wondering about. About 2 weeks before my period, I get the normal symptoms - anxiety, irritation, headaches, swollen tummy, etc. However, I also get "flu-type" symtoms - sore throat, runny nose, fever, body aches, chills, etc. This is happening every time before my period. I do have an appointment,but not for 4 more weeks. Has anyone else experienced this, or does anyone know what could be causing it? Thanks so much.

Those symptoms aren't that strange. During your period your immune system may not be as strong and can cause you to feel ill. Take multivitamins. I get body aches also.

Re: NEED PMS HELP - strange symptoms

Menstrual cramps are from contractions of your uterus forcing the blood out of your uterus. The lining of our uterus releases prostaglandins. This increases the contractions and can cause nausea and lightheadedness. Two weeks before your period you are ovulating and your body releases MORE prostaglandins during this time which is why a lot of us feel just plain crappy. Some women produce higher levels of prostaglandins which make cramps worse for them.

I use to get bad cramps, diarrhea,backache and my inner thighs would hurt. Now and then I'd throw up. I haven't really had problems for a couple of years now except for the diarrhea. I so wish that would go away!
