We have Viagra, but preeclampsia is still a huge problem. What does that show us about the priorities of the medico-pharmaceutical powers that be?
Magnesium, zinc, and the B vitamins help with ppmd. I think I remember seeing that Vitamin D does, too. My crunchy granola friend says it's because we're all deficient in those minerals due to petroleum based fertilizers that bleach all the nutrients out of the soil.

This is definitely a subject I avoid learning about. It is really complicated, it seems like the doctors screw more women up with this kind of stuff than anything. I think someday they will be able to better understand how all the changes interact but for now, they seem to be looking for guinney pigs to work with.

A total nightmare. Sometimes I have to miss work because I can barely walk. Perfectly healthy spent a ton of money in doctors bills to be told not much I can do. I hate pills. I stay in bed and sleep for 3 days can't eat because of the pain for 3 days into menstruation. Seriously a nightmare. Feel your pain
So, what are your experiences with PMS/PMDD? How do you cope with symptoms? Would you be interested in a treatment, if one were developed?
