If You Have Severe PMS Symptoms, You Could Be at Risk for This

November 26, 2015 1 min read

Periods are rough. The cramps, the bloating, the mood swings can all take their toll. Furthermore, a new study has found that there may be a health concern linked to these symptoms.   Researchers discovered that women with PMS are more likely to have high blood pressure. This comes from a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. For the study, the researchers followed more than 3,500 women, with nearly 1,200 of them having doctor-diagnosed PMS over six to 20 years. What they found was a link between PMS and high blood pressure in relation to women under 40 years of age. These women were three times as likely to deal with this health risk later in their life than women who didn't have such emotional and physical symptoms. While the researchers aren't sure of what the link is, they think it has something to do with blood vessels, since if something about them predisposes us to PMS, it may also do the same for severe blood pressure issues. Blood pressure is a serious concern, as it is one of the biggest factors for both heart disease as well as hypertension, and is showing up in younger and younger women. In the face of this, make sure you get your vitamins as researchers found that B vitamins help with those suffering from PMS, and women who take them are less likely to develop high blood pressure later in their lives. Dark, leafy greens, lean protein and yogurt are all good sources of keeping your B levels high. Do you have bad PMS symptoms? Source: Shape
