Doctor

A:   Hello,
The symptoms mentioned by you can be either early pregnancy symptoms or just premenstrual syndrome symptoms which mimic early pregnancy but in absence of pregnancy. It is advosed that you may undertake a blood serum beta hcg test to check for levels of hcg. If the levels are found to be raised , then you are pregnant for sure. But if the levels are less than 1 , then pregnancy is ruled out completely and the symptoms can be attributed to PMS, which indicate that your menses would ensue in few days . These symptoms in case of PMS would subside after the onset or end of menses.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
