What causes a sudden change in PMS symptoms?

What causes a sudden change in PMS symptoms?

Hormones /stress.: Not clear if asked about sudden worsening of mood symptoms or getting better. But I can say hormones play big role in mood changes in pms. Along with that if u have underlying history of mood disorder, it can worsen around the time of pms. If u reach the age around menopause then hormones change too, so that will change your mood. Monitor stress, exercise, diet and calcium intak that helps.

What can be done to stop the symptoms of pms.?

A few suggestions: The answer is somewhat counter intuitive. When you feel pms you don't feel like exercising, but exercise helps reduce the symptoms. Keep track of your period, knowing that the depressive symptoms are from pms helps take them in stride. Visit with friends to improve your mood, too. The hardest one is to fight the craving for chocolate, since studies show that it may make the pms worse.

Can exercise help relieve some of the symptoms of pms?

Can exercise help relieve some of the symptoms of pms?

Yes!: Exercise can give you natural pain relief. When we exercise, we make endorphins which act like "natural morphine." endorphins make us feel good. Also exercise helps us get rid of prostaglandins, the chemicals which causes uterus cramping. So getting up and getting moving 30-60 minutes every day is good for lots of reasons. Relieving period cramps is one of them. [more info in comments].

Do PMS symptoms tend to worsen or get better with age?

No certain pattern: If there is no pathological issue and you are simply reacting to hormonal variations, it may suggest less distress over time - you might as well look toward that once you know you are healthy. It will make it even more likely to lessen a bit at least. Best wishes!
