Just some general info if anyone is interested, just thought I would share.
PMS/PMDD can be misdiagnosed as
General anxiety disorder
Hormones can play a role in the following
(There are 5-7 different types, I think)
Acute Intermittent Porphyria is one type.
(Both Estrogen and Progesterone are usually contradicted with this disorder, predominantly progesterone)
A proportion of women with this disorder/disease may have porphyria attacks because of the Estrogen/Progesterone hormones. They are one of the culprits amongst others for porphyria attacks.
Porphyria is an extremely rare disorder/disease but none the less I thought I would mention it anyway.
*Hypothyroidism/Hashimotos Thyroiditis (Hashi's can be one of the causes of an underactive thyroid)
progesterone stimulates the thyroid gland, and for some women it can cause the immune system to attack the gland.
