My Cystic Acne Story - Hormonal Imbalance
What is adult-onset PMS?
Everything you need to know about the syndrome and how to deal with the symptoms…
Periods are a universally unpleasant monthly experience, and it’s safe to say that no one looks forward to four days of mood swings and stomach cramps. But for some, menstruating is particularly miserable.
Ever heard of adult-onset PMS? If not, well then lucky you, because the chances are that you probably don’t have it… yet.
We’re all familiar with PMS (premenstrual syndrome): the physical and emotional symptoms that come in the run up to a woman’s period. Acne, tender breasts, bloating and mood swings are a monthly reality for a good 75% of us, but for one in 20 women, however, these symptoms can be much more severe, disrupting daily life.
Stress, anxiety, insomnia, migraines and nausea are all on the list, not to mention constipation and diarrhoea, muscle pain and severe abdominal cramps. Thankful that you’re not one of the unlucky few sufferers? Well don’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet.
Introducing adult-onset PMS: an acute form of the syndrome that only emerges in adults. We wish we were kidding.
While it’s true that PMS is usually confined to our late teens and 20s, along with unrequited love, questionable decision-making and ill-fitting jeans, for some unfortunate women PMS rears its ugly head from 40 onwards.
So, for those of us living in comparative bliss, ‘breezing’ our way through ‘that time of the month’ with carbohydrates, chick flicks and the occasional painkiller – we could be in for a shocker in later life.
