Could be PMDD: From your age, you are very far from typical menopause. Also you are still having menstrual periods. You sound like you really don't feel well, and need to see your physician -- also need to track your symptoms with a little calendar along with your periods. That will help you & your doctor know how things shift (if they do) with your cycle. Treatment and/or further testing can go form there.
