I experience pain and get irritable, Am I PMS’ing or is it something severe?

Question : I get really depressed and anxious around the dates of my period. And I don’t mean just a bit sad and a bit worried. I mean I feel I can’t get out of bed, I feel totally exhausted and I feel panicky too. I experience a lot of pain and get super irritable with everyone and my stress levels shoot up the roof. I don’t know if this is just normal mood swings – my friends say it’s just PMS, but it feels more severe!!— Teentalker , 16-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for writing in. Yes, your emotions are linked heavily to your monthly cycle hence you may experience a wide range of emotional ups and downs on days leading to your period date. This emotional ride is also known as the Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). I’m going to list the symptoms, out of which some have been mentioned by you.

Physical Symptoms

  • Breast tenderness
  • Cramps
  • Backaches/Headaches/
  • Bloating
  • Lack of energy
