PMS Aches & Pains - Ask the Doctor Q & A
I think I've had the last straw with my PMS symptoms and am finally ready to do something about it. I went to the fair all day with my family, but I was in pain and exhausted the whole time. The last thing I wanted was to be on my feet all day, but I didn't want to miss out on time with my family. But I couldn't enjoy it or even get excited about the things my kids were excited about, because I just wanted to sit down. It's really hard to know it's going to be a miserable weekend because you just feel horrible.

The good news is, you don't have to live with them. Our whole site is dedicated to answering your questions, and providing a natural answer to your problems.
