Hi hi !
So I'll bet this has been covered..but as I sit here struggling with predictable nausea, swimming head and an inability to focus exactly 7 days prior to period being due.. I've gotta ask... should the symptoms of PMS really be SEVEN days? Do you mainly have them a few days beforehand? And is there anything that works better than ginger for the waves of nausea that have come with it for the last few months?
I hate feeling like I'm stumbling through one week out of four and have countless presentations today that I'm suddenly dreading.

I'd advise drinking a lot more water before. You are going to want to replenish the blood you lost, and drinking a lot of water will help, as will things like juices. Soft drinks (Coke, Pepsi, etc) have caffeine, and caffeine will dehydrate you, as will chocolate. I find that Pamprin helps when I've been cramping up, too.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I don't really suffer from PMS, or not much/often anyway, so I don't really know. However maybe you should go see your doctor? I had friends with bad PMS and cramps and their doctors perscribed the pill to reduce the symptoms - your doctor may be able to help you. Spending 1 week a month with the descriptions you gave sounds really horrible

I'd suggest seeing a doctor as well. It might be PMS but it also might be some other underlying issue. Getting some blood work would probably be helpful too.

I'm wondering how old you are...? PMS often gets worse after 40 or so. Sorry!
