PMDD is the most severe form of PMS. Women with PMDD can have all the same physical symptoms as PMS, but usually have very severe emotional symptoms that make life during the premenstrual phase nearly impossible. PMDD is usually treated with antidepressants or oral contraceptives. Alternative therapies also hold promise for PMDD.
I am a holistic doctor who has started a website for PMS and PMDD, and have created this group to help increase awareness of PMDD and create a place where women can share openly about this difficult condition.
