Monthly mood swings are not just women's business: the latest research shows that the boys are also prone to he monthly blues. A study by psychologists from England's University Of Derby suggests that men may experience cyclical symptoms similar to, or worse, than those suffered by premenstrual women.
Symptomps of this 'periodic male tension' or PMT include pain. loss of concentration, behavioral changes, physical reactions, negative feelings and loss of arousal. The reasearch team asked 100 men and women about symptoms usually realated to the menstrual cycle.
They were stunned when the men reported they suffered from similiar symptomps more severely than the women.Another hypothesis is that men have a lower pain threshold than women-and making a fuss about nothing.
