I think I am suffering from premenstrual dysphoric disorder, it is severe. I am going to be 45 years old and an definitely showing menopausal signs. I am suffering from a total lack of sleep and have severe anxieties before menses, during and after. I can't get anybody to help me, I am beside myself. I have tried different sleep aids and also Chinese herbs, I do not know what else to do. Is anybody out there with some helpful advise>

Have you experienced any hot flashes yet?Also, have you considered short-term hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Although it does have some potential side effects, it works wonders for some women who are coping with menopause symptoms.Best regards,John
