Hi, I've always denied that I had PMS symptoms. Today, I'm just not sure anymore. I have Pseudotumor Cerebri, which is a disease of extra spinal fluid surrounding the brain causing headaches. I've been on medication since July, and since then my cycles have changed. I have a 5 yr old son and since he was born, my cycles were anywhere b/t 27-48 days and would last for 7 days. Now since I was on this medication they have gone down to 4-5 days and are b/t 28-35 days.

I get headaches in the back of my head and neck for two weeks, from the time I get my period to the time I ovulate. Last night I got my period, and today I'm tired, short tempered, and I have a slight head/neck ache. Signs of PMS? Or am I tired b/c I crave all the junk food, eat it and feel like crap b/c of all the sugar, and therefore get tired and short tempered, and the head/neck pain is just b/c of my period...menstrual migraine?

anyone have suggestions, or have similar problems. I don't know what PMS symptoms are like...
