Discuss w/ psy: The term may not really matter and from what you say SAD+GAD+PMS combined w/ whatever else, it sounds like a reasonable choice. The NOS must be what you're wondering about. It merely means that it is not an 'exact' fit w/ the 'specified' categories availabe in the big book. Like your meal may not be on the menu - but is a combo of a la carte items. Why do you care? Is Tx helping? Talk about it.
