The symptoms are normal premenstrual symptoms.

Premenstrual symptoms generally in include a wide variety of symptoms like bloating, weight gain, breast tenderness, sore nipples, and abdominal cramps. But if the symptoms start affecting your daily life, then it's called a Premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Although PMS cannot be cured, you do have a number of lifestyle and medications choices that can help.

1) Try any baby oil or virgin coconut Use Tab. Ponstel 250 mg once day to reduce pain from cramps. Don't take more than 1 tablet a day and not for more than 5 days as it can cause severe gastritis.

2) Take daily calcium and vitamin B6 to improve the hormonal regularization and reduce symptoms.

3) Maintain a daily regimen of exercise .It helps in improving the endocrine system which maintains the hormones and also helps in improving the mood and relieving tension associated with PMS.

4) Maintain a good healthy diet and reduce caffeine and chocolate from the diet. Also reduce any form of stress associated in your life.
