I have been suffering with worstening pre mentrual syndrome for many years now (I am 43). My pms symptoms come anything from 3-5 days before my period and can continue until I have finished ovulating on day 16. I am moody, anxious, clumsy, suffers severe headaches, muscle aches (almost like the onset of flu), severe lethargy, and general feeling of lacklustre. I can also feel quite desperate at times and do not sleep well, fretting over the slightest thing. My period also lasts for around 7/8 days, then I spot on days 10-14/16, so I generally have one week after this before my pms starts again, and it this week only that I know I am free from my horrid symptoms. I have tried Evening Primrose for 6 months and there is no difference. I am considering the Mirena Coil but am very concerned about the stories I have read on other websites of women who have suffered drastic adverse effects. I am not suitable for the pill (family history of thrombosis/heart problems and my age is against me) have considered progesterone, but my gyno doesn't seem keen on this. We didn't really go in to it but she is so keen on the Mirena (she has it fitted) she was very persuasive. I go in October and need to decide in the meantime if I want to go ahead. I dont know what to do for the best, but I need to do something.
