Dr Oz: Perimenopausal Rage Quiz
Are you an explosive and out of control mom, wife, and friend? Do you shout at loved ones for no reason at all? If so, Dr Oz says you may have Perimenopausal Rage. This disorder is a real medical condition and affects millions of women.
The opening scene of today’s Dr Oz Show profiled Leslie, a church pastor and a mother of 3, yelling at her son. She stated that she felt like a good pastor and that this mostly happens at home and that she is able to control herself somewhat with church members. Leslie stated that she was edgy and irritable and she didn’t know why. She said that the irritability and agitation were the most frustrating signs. Leslie’s husband said the rage can go on for 2 minutes or 20 minutes and that you never knew when it was going to happen. Leslie said she yelled for things such as dirty dishes, kids in the kitchen, or something as small as a cup in the sink. Her son felt angry sometimes, but was also scared that mom had something wrong with her. After Leslie explodes, she felt bad, feeling her rage was completely uncontrollable. No one had time to get out of the way.
