daughter suffers every month

My daughter asked me to post this & see if anyone knows. Every month she is in bad shape, bad cramps etc. Sometimes her hand swells up & hurts, what could that be?

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.

Re: daughter suffers every month

Just wondering, she was put on a thyroid med not long ago, doesn't that affect your hormones too?
