It is absolutely mind-boggling that something like mood swings can be a symptom of a whole host of health conditions. For this reason, Flu like symptoms and PMS symptoms will be reviewed and compared. We will briefly discuss treatments for both as well.

It should be noted that not every person will have the same symptoms nor will they have same intensity of symptoms as others.

Flu Symptoms

Not all of the symptoms of the flu appear in each case. Symptoms of the flu include a stuffy nose and chest discomfort and coughing. Coughing can be mild to moderate and occurs quite commonly. Coughing and chest discomfort and a sore throat are considered severe and considered fairly common as well. Fever over 99 degrees up to 102 F. Headaches are common with the flu. Fatigue and weakness are common with the flu and can last up to three weeks. Extreme exhaustion may occur early and be present through the duration of the flu.

PMS Symptoms

PMS – premenstrual syndrome can be attributed to either of two causes. Low levels of Serotonin. Mood swings, fatigue irritability, and anxiety and depression may occur.

Food cravings may be experienced and your appetite could be affected. Anger and aggressive behavior as well as concentration and sleep problems may happen.

PMS symptoms may also be related to hormone levels that can trigger headaches including migraines. Sore breasts, back pain and weight gain are also symptoms of PMS. Feeling bloated may also be experienced. There are many more ‘complaints’ that can be associated with PMS.

Flu like Symptoms and PMS

Both the flu and PMS have headaches, fatigue, and body aches as part of their symptoms. Irritability, anxiety, and depression may appear in both as well. In the flu though, the symptoms are likely to be milder if they occur.


Flu treatments may include flu vaccines, antiviral medications, and antibiotics. There are over the counter treatments that can be used to treat the flu. There are non-medical treatments for the flu that can both prevent and treat the flu: these include washing your hands especially after you sneeze or cough and using a tissue. The tissue will collect the germs from a sneeze or cough and can be disposed of immediately.

PMS treatments include prescription medications to treat PMS and PMDD (premenstrual dysphonic disorder). Anti-depressants have been used in treating PMS and even out mood swings. Pain relievers and other over the counter treatments are available.

PMS/PMDD can be treated also with natural products such as herbal supplements. Herbal remedies for PMS of a higher quality are rigorously tested. At the molecular level the metabolic paths of the ingredients are examined. Also observed during testing are the interactions of the ingredients. They are also manufactured according to pharmaceutical grade standards. This helps to guarantee that the ingredients listed on the product label are actually in the supplements.

Their purity, safety and effectiveness are ensured by these processes. The quality of each capsule/tablet is the same for each dose. This helps to enhance the effectiveness of the supplements. Some of the herbs known to benefit PMS include Black Cohosh, Chasteberry, and Red Clover among others. Chasteberry is also a natural anti-inflammatory.


Flu like symptoms and PMS symptoms are very similar including headaches, exhaustion, and irritability. The flu is treated with anti-virals, antibiotics, over the counter treatments, and non-medical options. PMS is treated with anti-depressants, pain relievers, over the counter medications, and possibly herbal supplements. The flu may also be able to be treated with herbal supplements.
