Good luck with your doc emptyeyes. My PMS has been building up since I developed a tolerance to zoloft, that use to keep me level. It's been a year now and while I feel there's been some improvement feeling really bad for at least 7days out of every 28 can't keep going on.
I see my pdoc on Friday so went down to see my GP today. All she could suggest was B6, magnesiam and calcium. The man at the health food shop said the magnesiam is the main one as it's the one to relax you.
I also took a valium but now feel like utter crap, luckily it's my hubbies day off so he can watch the kids if I need to go crash.
I'm going to organise going to my mums for the next 2 days when hubbies at work unless the PMS lets up. Hopefully on Friday I'll get some answers. i feel so let down that it's been a year and we still can't get the meds right.
I totally understand what you all are going through. I am 40 years old and I've suffered with PMS for atleast 17 years. I heard the other day that women that have had their tubes tied or in my case cut and burned, it was linked to PMS. I so dread it when that time comes around. I don't like being so ill and I too in the past have suffered from Aniexty/Panic disorder. I have never took any medication for it because It didn't seem to work. I have took valarien in the past, right now I am taking 5htp. I do use hormone cream also. A couple of weeks before I start I toss and turn every night. I am either hot or cold. I have realized that I tend to make mountains out of mole hills right before I start. If I have a aniexty attack during the day when I finally do get home and I come down off the attack, I am just tired. I hate all this crap! I do know what you are feeling. Also, prayer helps me whole lot and talking about it.
Thanks for replying bennettgirl,
yesterday was horrible by afternoon I was a sobbing hysterical mess. I tried ringing the hospital to reach my pdoc but just got the run around with the end result sorry we're full we can't re-admit you.
I told them I didn't want to be re-admitted I just wanted to talk to my pdoc. I'm so angry before I left the hospital I knew that this week would be the test with the pms and I was worrying endlessly when my pdoc started me on a worry diary. I finally wrote down my worry and realised that he'd be able to help me organise a backup plan just in case. Well I brought it up and he didn't seemed concerned about me needing a backup plan so now I'm just a huge mess in front of the kids again. My youngest has been following me around everywhere she's worried I'm going to go away again. All I want is for the pdoc to get my moods/ pms under control. I can't keep this happening every month for the next 15 years.
Even my husband said you're getting better, but this happens every month. DER.... I know that and I can't take it anymore. The first 2 days I used the techniques I'd been taught and they helped me get through it but yesterday was just so full on the crying lasted 7 hours straight. (That's one positive of keeping diaries for the pdoc the good and bad is all there in black and white.)
I'm going to mums today which is more pressure on her as she's elderly, but I don't feel safe to be alone.
aussie, it sounds like its getting worse. just remember it will be over with soon. i talked with my pdoc, she wanted me to take an anti depressant for 10 days before. well, i told her i was sick of taking meds, and that most anti depressants i've taken don't work for me. i'm going to let it go one more month, and see if its as bad next month, then i might concider the extra meds, i don't know tho
