Does anyone else get these symptoms before their period?

so i already have anxiety disorder but it seems the week before my period it becomes unbearable. then i have periods of depression as well, fatigue, and the obvious things like eating too much and neverending hunger. i know that the depression and anxiety could be PMDD but i was wondering if anyone gets heart palps before their period. they are really scary and make me feel even more anxious and depressed.

  • No. My boobs just get really sore. Could be hormones doing that to you though.

  • I'm guessing that it's the surge of hormones combined with your anxiety disorder causing that.

  • You are probably caught in a vicious circle. Your anxiety and the hormones that bring on your period get your body going, and then the heart palpitations trigger more anxiety, which triggers more palpitations. Do you do any deep breathing or relaxation when you start getting revved up? I don't get palpitations from my anxiety, but I do start feeling queasy and just plain off, and sometimes sitting down for five minutes so I can get a grip on my breathing really helps.
