Uncontrollable emotions during PMS Watch

Up until I was 19, PMS, for me, was only backaches, a bit of nasuea and vomiting and some headaches.

Now I am 21 and in the past 2 years, these physical pains during PMS have disappeared but now I have the craziest moods during it instead. I am not exaggerating.. I am a really rational, calm person.

But during the 10 days leading up to my period, I lose control of myself, my emotions, my thoughts and my actions. I act on impulse and say/do many things I regret, my emotions and temper are out of control and its to the point where I physically attack anyone who irriates me (actually attacking family members badly)... its ruining my life every month and affecting my relationships with people.

Do any of you other girls suffer this too? Like, to the point where it does change your life alot? I feel that way. I want to goto a doctor but I am wondering, what possible 'treatments' are there? I've been told that birth control can sort of help with the moods (hormones and stuff?) but what else is there? Or is this just something I have to learn to deal with?

so weird. i've found that i've only started getting really bad pms this past year. before i counted myself lucky that i didn't suffer pms at all. my moods swing wildly, and i will pick fights with my bf and cry a lot over nothing.

i've been wondering whether i should go to the dr too. i did start a thread on it, but i'm wondering if it's a stupid thing to go to the drs for. i'd be interested in any replies too.

this was my thread:

hey, i just did a little search on google, found this:
http://www.pms.org.uk/Home

they suggest charting your symptoms on their online chart for 2/3 months, so you can show your GP exactly what's been going on. i've just registered and started my chart.

there's also lots of info about pms too.

I get very extreme tearfulness, and I tend to feel more insecure than normal (I was surprised that was possible). Everything worries me a lot more, and I cry at the slightest of things. The extreme tearfulness makes me more likely to cry at happy things too, for example a picture of a kitten can set me off!

In the past couple of years the couple of days leading up to my period have become a complete nightmare. If it's not pain making me the most angry human being who ever existed, it's the hormones making me super sensitive. I cry about everything and just seem to lose control of myself.

However, harming people is a bit TOO out of control and needs addressing. Try seeing your GP.

It really varies for me. There's always a lot of physical pain but the weird moodswings do occur as well.. However I do thing what you've described is a bit too much. Why not go see a doctor anyway?
