It is possible: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects most menstruating women to some degree, and can include many different symptoms. PMS symptoms can appear any time in the two weeks prior to menstruation. Some symptoms common to both the flu and PMS include: joint and muscle pain, fatigue and weakness, headaches, chills, irritability and anxiety. If symptoms recur every month, it is most likely due to PMS.

? PMS: or Pre Menstrual Syndrome, common, but not normal, chart your symptoms when they start, giving a scoring system (1-10), for 2-3 cycles. You may want to start with your primary doctor or your gynecologist for evaluation, meanwhile you may want to try some exercise as aerobics or yoga to help you out, best wishes
