  5. Mary Plumley says:

    Hi Dr. I am going to try pulsatilla, it often seems to match my remedy picture but rarely has an effect but I will try. I am 47 and my pms is often severe. I get on and off bouts of extreme sadness and feelings that I am unloved and Unappreciated. Past things that my husband has done to make me sad all come back to me and I have to work so hard to distract myself to not let myself dwell on them! I will be busy and feel fine for a half hour then it will hit me again. I like to be around friends and get comfort from them, don’t want to be alone because then the sadness is worse. Friends and company distract me and make me feel happy and good for awhile. Also have some trouble getting irritable over small things on and off. Also have breast tenderness and very minor skin acne at this time of month. I also get the same sort of pms symptoms at ovulation time as well!

  13. Monika Crawford says:

    I am inquiring for a remedy for my 14 year old daughter who suffers greatly from PMS. All of the above symptoms apply to her so it is difficult to know where to start ! Her symptoms are more prevalent right before or at the beginning of her period. She has extreme irritability and mood swings. She finds herself very emotional and in tears several times a day. She also suffers from cramps and break outs during her period. I am not sure where to start sepia, ignato, pulsatilla, natrum mur or all of the above.?? How much and how often? In the past she has suffered from mild depression during her period and it is hard to tell if the mood swings and and sadness are part of this or something else. Your advise would be greatly appreciated it. She is a great girl but miserable 3-5 days during or right before her period and very hard to live with. Her entire being changes it seems. She is a very bright, funny and energetic girl typically Thank you!
