    I get cramps a few days before which is normal.


    I do however get super emotional / feel irritable and sad a day or so beforehand.

    Probably the most unusual thing I would get was strep throat.  There were numerous issues.  Hurray for BPC!

    About a week before my period, for one day only, I’m liable to get in a big argument with someone (usually Fiance just due to proximity). For years now I schedule this day into our mutual calendar and warn him when it’s coming up. This helps us figure out what day it is (the estimation isn’t always exact) and avoid the argument (I’ll recognize I’m irrationally irritable, he’ll know not to talk to me much, and generally give me my space and do his own thing, and he’ll give me some comfort food while I entertain myself with something easy I don’t usually indulge myself in (animated kid’s movies, tabloid).

    Sometimes it’s not an irritability/big argument problem, but I’m irrationally despondant instead. Life suddenly sucks for no particular reason. Same tactics as above, but now Fiance sits with me and cuddles and talks to me about cheerful things.

    And sometimes this weird day does not occur at all that month. Lately it hasn’t been. We both breathe a sigh of relief like you would if your city was under a tornado or hurricane warning and it just got cancelled.

    Oh and I get MEGA BOOBS that look like porn but hurt to be touched or to lie on.

    @Anamagana:  When I’m PMS-ing I get really hungry and need to eat a lot more. I often have shorter patience and there’s one day that I will cry for hours.

    Sometimes I get a little cranky before AF but generally I’m pretty normal. I get crazy painful cramps the first day.

    Shorter temper, more sensitive, prone to crying easily

    I get PMDD, actually, which is worse. I am borderline suicidal each month.

    In addition to getting really emotional and cranky, I get food cravings, put salt on everything, I get super horny (tmi sorry), and am either really tired and fatigued or have never ending energy!

    The salt drives my DH insane since he tries to not eat much salt but I seriously bring the shaker with me when we sit down for dinner or with popcorn.  Sometimes I add so much salt that DH can’t even swallow it and ends up gagging.  I drink water like no one’s business normally so IDK why I crave salt so badly.  As for food cravings, it’s always extremely random stuff like cheesecake with potato chips on it, french fries with a frosty, a burger ONLY from a burger joint we don’t have here, and raw zuchinni dipped in sour cream with dill.  (notice the salt trend?)
