Are you on the Pill or some other hormonal birth control?  If not, I’d consider it.  Many pills out there have constant doses of hormones so you’re not fluctuating all the time.  I’m on Loestrin 24 and I don’t even get a period at all any more, and no period for me means no PMS.  If you are on the pill, talk to your doctor about switching/starting.  Some women, like myself, are really sensitive to specific hormones, and maybe you’re getting too much of one.  I react really poorly to progesterone and had to find a pill that didn’t have any before I felt like myself again.  The PMS is clearly impacting your life in a major way and it’s definitely something that can be fixed (or at least made better)!

Is it really high blood pressure that causes that?  Is he on medication for it?  It sounds like something more serious to me.  Bad memory or not, he actually just sounds like some of the immature boyfriends that I’ve had in the past…

In regards to your PMS question – Taking a borage oil supplement is supposed to help during that time.  Perhaps just being honest with him that “hey, it’s my time of the month in a few days” might put a stop to it too.  Yes, you have hormones, they are a part of you and it’s OK to have them.  I feel like his memory issue is really just a subordinate issue here.  The issue is that he can’t accept that you have PMS sometimes.  He doesn’t need to walk on eggshells, but he might want to be a little more caring and understanding during that time.  I hesitate to tell you to medicate yourself with BCPs (unless you are on one, then you might want to switch – YAZ was awful for me and PMS) because part of a relationship is compromising and learning how to deal with situations that arise.  He needs to be part of that.
