  1. Clumsiness
  2. Appetite changes, either increased or decreased
  3. Changes in libido (sexual desire)
  4. Forgetfulness and difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep disturbances
  6. Tearfulness
  7. A desire to be alone.

The symptoms of PMS typically occur from 5 to 11 days prior to the onset of the menstrual period.
