Gene that makes PMT symptoms worse
This article tells the story of a woman, Laura, who suffered severe symptoms as the result of PMS but was told by her doctor that she was making up symptoms. PMS is often not taken seriously and therefore misdiagnosed. Dr Panay is interviewed, saying that there is concrete proof that severe PMS is a genuine disease. He also discusses a study that showed that women can have genetic vulnerability to changes in hormone levels, and that diagnosing PMS should be more about timing rather than precise symptoms.
