PMS: The hormonal shifts that occur before the period can cause many symptoms. Things you can do to improve them include: exercising regularly, increasing b vitamins, eating a healthy diet with fewer processed foods and less sugar. If you avoid alcohol and caffeine, you may also feel better. Plan ahead, and make sure you're getting enough sleep during that time. Your doc can also check for anemia.

Weak before period: The large hormonal swings that occur during the monthly menstrual cycle usually can cause one to feel weak before the period occurs.
