For the last 2 wk of every 4 wk cycle my breasts are sore/enlarged, I'm nauseated and I get these weird dizzy spells that make me recall the same memories every single time (that I can't remember the details of after the spell is over). Something about thee dizzy spell loosens the bowls and I have to use the bathroom (I know, wth?). Occasionally I'll have a period that isn't my normal 28 days (i.e. last month I was randomly 5-6 days late).

This isn't the first time this has happened, I had nausea along with pain in my ovary-area for almost 8 mos after I had a miscarriage + D&C, Also during those 8 mos I had wonky periods and even anovulatory cycles (we were charting to get pregnant). Further to this, aprox 3 mos before I first got pregnant before I miscarried I started having those same dizzy spells, but no nausea or sore breasts. All of this stopped when I got pregnant again, 8 mos after I had my miscarriage, and aside from the occasional dizzy spell, no other symptoms since then (3 yrs has passed) up until a few months ago. For the last 3 cycles I've had sore, enlarged breasts, nausea, dizzy spells with a subsequent bathroom break followed by fatigue and a headache post-dizzy spell.

Could this be a hormonal thing? I took a pregnancy test last month, when I was 4 days late, and it was negative. My husband has had a vasectomy and I knew very early when I was pregnant with boy my sons, so I'm not pregnant.

Since I cannot examine you, I cannot provide you with a specific diagnosis. However, your symptoms are consistent with premenstrual syndrome.

You should ask your Gynecologist to evaluate you, to be sure that something more serious is not going on. He/She may also be able to offer you treatment that will reduce the severity of the symptoms that you have been experiencing.
