Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a severe and disabling form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMDD is characterized by several physical and emotional symptoms that typically occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.

Symptoms of PMDD can include mood swings, irritability, depression, anxiety, and changes in appetite. PMDD can significantly interfere with daily functioning and quality of life. Treatment for PMDD typically involves lifestyle changes and medications like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
