The golfball-like feeling and the subsequent swellings are some not so common symptoms of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome.

It often helps to drink lukewarm water in regular bouts (usually starting on an empty stomach early in the morning before you go for your morning ritual) along a target of between 1.5 - 2.2 litres every day, an increased intake of any one wholegrain product, usually oatmeal works (it or any other complex carbohydrate, if taken a day or 7-8 hours prior to onset of menstruation, will also diminish any menstrual pain that you experience, if at all).....and please stay off any spices, margarine and high protein (including seafood) during these days.

If Benadryl works, I cannot comment...that's for your doctor (read informed gynaecologist) to judge upon ....am just an orthopedic physical therapist.

Also, if, during these days, you could engage in a lukewarm shower (instead of an outright hot or cold one) it will also help you with feeling better overall and sleeping better.

Please post as to how this works out......prior subjects whom I advised thus have benefitted. Here's hoping it works out for you too........:-D

Thanks for the read.
