    You should start by talking with your gynecologist. This / a can analyze your hormone levels and may have some idea about whether you are pre-menopausal. There may be certain things that you can recommend your gynecologist to relieve your symptoms. After a thorough evaluation, your gynecologist may recommend psychiatric counseling. The pre-menopause can definitely cause mood swings in some women (both depression and anxiety).
