Men Suffer From PMS, Too!!
While millions of men world-wide are affected by the effects of premenstrual
tension syndrome (PMS) among women, few men are capable of truly understanding
PMS symptoms can involve breast tenderness, water retention, headaches, back
and leg aches, irritability, nervousness, anxiety and depression.
The monthly menstrual cycle is regulated by the body's nervous and glandular
systems and any disturbance to these systems either physically or mentally can
produce symptoms of PMS.
Physical trauma like that resulting from an automobile whiplash or a severe
emotional upset can change a normal symptom-free menstrual cycle into a monthly
state of physical and emotional pain and suffering.
An otherwise happy, normal and sane human being may begin to think she is
"losing it," especially when she is having periods of depression and
"cries for no reason at all."
A chiropractic examination and X-ray of a PMS-prone woman's spine often reveals
structural problems in the lumbar region, especially in the area where the lumbar
nerves supply the ovaries and uterus.
A regular weekly exercise program, balanced meals and periodic chiropractic
spinal adjustments, especially just prior to the menstrual cycle will help relieve
premenstrual tension syndrome.
