PMS - anyone get it like this? (not a rant)

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I know that loadsa people get sore breasts, mood swings, back ache, stomach ache, headaches, feeling weepy, being sleepy etc etc, I get it too. But I haven't found anyone else that gets a couple of other things I have.

I get really really paranoid. And seriously scared. Last night I was convinced there was a gunman in the garden who was gonna shoot me through the window. I mean I was seriously believing it even though I hadn't heard/seen anything at all. I still can't sleep in total silence/darkness but the first night I'm on my period I'm always wide awake, heart thumping because I'm really scared, but sometimes I don't even know what I'm scared of. This happens every month.

Another thing that happens is that the first full day I'm on, I'm totally wiped out and find it practically impossible to move around for more than about 5 minutes before I need to sit down and collapse. I seem to spend the day in a daze and time and reality and dreams get all mixed up. It's like I keep drifting in and out of consciousness and unless someone is talking to me directly I keep fading in and out.

I take mefenamic acid tablets and paracetomol for the pain, so could this be affecting me in any way? Has anyone heard of/experienced the same kinda stuff cos I've never heard it mentioned before? It only ever happens for the first day/night I'm on my period, but it always happens every month. I could cope with the pain and sleepiness (I hope!) but the delusions (for want of a better word) and the floating in and out of sanity make it kinda hard to function.

Any help greatly appreciated lovely site <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Thanks guys <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Yeah it is kinda weird and scary, I'm a chicken a lot of the time but round my period it just gets out of control - like you described Kitty. I heard primose oil was good for periods but I never tried it - cheers chris, worth a try <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Anyone else? Or is it just Kitty and me who get this? (Kitty and Chicky lol)

    I dont get that but my psychiatrist thinks my periods effect my mad rages. I get real bad mood swings at the best of times but theres a definate link between my period coming and me loosing my mind and flying off the hanle. I dont just mean a bad mood either....I really fucking loose it. Like the other day I totally lost it for no apparent reason and nutted the wall coz I couldnt contain myself and I felt like bloody killing someone, next day I got my period!

    nothing like as bad as what you described claire, but the first night i can't sleep at all, i just turn over and over till i tie myself up in the duvet. i get really hot too which is nasty. then the next morning i'm shattered, but i don't know if that's the lack of sleep or to do with my period.

    maybe both?

    eep. i'm horrible and paranoid and depressed before my period. it's yucky. <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; but there's added experience issues there too, which makes it worse.
