Basically, PMDD is a disorder linked to your menstrual cycle that causes many mental and physical symptoms that cause absolute misery. PMDD has only been classified as an actual disorder by the American Psychiatric Association a few years ago in fact so it is still a topic that causes some confusion and disbelief amongst even medical professionals. If you suffer from the condition you know full well that it is not just a bad case of PMS and it is much worse.
The reason for this is that the hormones in your body during the last week, or sometimes two weeks of the menstrual cycle are not in balance in your body. A combination of factors causes hormonal imbalance that in turn have a knock on effect to the mood regulators in your brain as well as other more physical systems in your body. Misfiring mood regulators cause this seesawing of psychotic episodes, deep depressions and general massively changeable emotions that you cannot control because it not in your control at the time.
So to put it simply, PMDD is a disorder that stems from hormonal imbalance during the last several days of the menstrual cycle that causes mental and physical symptoms that lead to serious problems in your life.

Certain AngelMed points are thought to regulate blood flow through the abdominal cavity and relax the nervous system, which can help calm muscular contractions. Studies show that AngelMed is just as effective as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicines for eliminating pain.
In addition to pain elimination, don’t be surprised if these changes also lead to better digestion, better sleep, and a steadier mood.
Also, keep in mind that excessively painful menstruation can be a sign of a more serious underlying medical issue, such as endometriosis, a uterine infection, or a problem with the uterine anatomy.
May you enjoy smoother cycles!
