Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) Diagnosis
The health care professional will talk with the patient about her symptoms and when they occur each month. Keep track of symptoms, particularly noting when they occur during the menstrual cycle. The health care practitioner may ask the patient to keep accurate records or diary of symptoms throughout the next month or two. These records give the patient and health care professional a better understanding of the symptoms and how they relate to the patient's menstrual cycle.
