Doctor :   but it would be a very early diagnosis
User :   yea i know
Doctor :   wait til 2 or 3 of march , if you do not have periods then go for a test
User :   ok is that the earliest i can do?
Doctor :   and the symptoms are similar in PMS and pregnancy
Doctor :   yes, thats the only early test
User :   ok, i did have the thought of my symptoms being to do with hormones, but i dont usually feel sick and this tired,
Doctor :   PMS can very rarely be aggravated due to stress , hence it could be a chance
Doctor :   but any way you have to wait another 5 to 6days for a confirmed diagnosis

Doctor :   til then take multivitamins and antacids
User :   ok
