In brief: Headaches

Headaches are a symptom of pre-menstrual syndrome.
There are a few things you can try. Take advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen prior to the onset of the headaches (a day or two before it normally would start). Take one every 6-8 hours. Also birth control pills may help as well. Your doctor can go over all your options and additional treatments with you. Best of luck.
