I have PMDD and it sounds like you might. Have you researched it?

ETA- Here is a good link

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)

And to answer your question – No, I haven’t. PMDD means I have the same hormone levels as everyone else, but my body can’t handle the fluctuations.

Stace126 :  I have been on BCP for it for almost 4 years and it worked perfectly, no symptoms at all, up until recently. Now it looks like I will need to switch pills, and possibly try SSRI’s 14 days a month. It really sucks. Other than that, no there isn’t much you can do. Just wait for menopause unfortunately. 🙁

Your symptoms sound similar to the ones I experienced before I was diagnosed with PCOS. Ask your doctors for all the copies of your old blood work to keep in a file. Make copies to give to your other doctors to bring to future appointments so that you can avoid some retesting. Will your insurance cover an endocrinologist? An endocrinologist can order the hormone tests.
