Period symptoms include physical and emotional symptoms due to hormonal effect. Physical symptoms include but not limited to acne, swollen tender breasts, feeling bloated, trouble sleeping, feeling tired, changes in appetite, feeling nauseous, constipation or diarrhea, headache or backache. Mental symptoms could be bursts of anger, irritability, anxiety or depression. It is also called premenstrual dysphoria. Minor symptoms are manageable by OTC anti-inflammatory medications, staying hydrated and resting. When symptoms start interfering with your daily life, you need to get some help from a doctor—Dr. Harshida Chaudhari of I and My Doctors Clinic can suggest medication to help with physical symptoms of menstruation.
