Anybody here know what premenstrual dysphoric disorder or PMDD is?

I have heard about this and PMDD is more of a violent or emotional outburst while PMS-ing. Some women are quick to temper with PMS but with PMDD its more violent and I read that they can be bad.

PMDD is a mental disorder affecting the menstrual cycle.

I found this on the net about PMDD:
* feelings of deep sadness or despair, possible suicide ideation
* feelings of tension or anxiety
* panic attacks
* diarrhea
* mood swings, crying,
* lasting irritability or anger, increased interpersonal conflicts. Typically sufferers are unaware of the impact they have on those close to them
* apathy or disinterest in daily activities and relationships
* yeast infections
* difficulty concentrating
* fatigue
* food cravings or binge eating
* insomnia or hypersomnia
* feeling "out of control",
* increase or decrease in sex drive.
* increased need for emotional closeness,
* physical symptoms: bloating, heart palpitations, breast tenderness, headaches, joint or muscle pain, swollen face

I have food craving and bloating...but i know its just PMS. I have never had violent tendencies or gloomy episodes and the symptoms listed here are really scary!

I tried googling this and aside from the posts here, there is nothing really more to add. but I am glad though that this is quite rare. It is really disturbing and some of the women are really having a hard time coping. I know I would too :(
