a few prawns short of a galaxy

When does PMS start?

My body is still taking me on a crazy rollercoaster. I'm pretty sure I ovulated more or less on schedule according to ladytimer (tons of icky discharge, now none), and a few days later, about two weeks before my period is theoretically due, MY BOOBS ARE FREAKING KILLING ME. I occasionally get sore boobs a little bit before my period, but never this early. My underarms, my upper back, everything is achy. I think they might be bigger than usual as well but it's hard to tell because my boobs are freaking huge (like...side show huge; I really don't like them) in their natural state, and I don't wear bras because they give me back pain. (I know they're supposed to reduce back pain...well tell them that!)

I'm also exhausted. Over the last two days I've slept for more than 24 hours, and I'm ready to go back to bed right now!

I always thought that PMS started a few days or at most a week before your period. Could I be feeling PMS symptoms this early? Or do I need to start panicking about virgin pregnancy again? (I took two tests after my period last month, both negative...since I didn't actually MISS a period - or skip a bout of bleeding, anyway, period or not - it was kind of hard to guess when to do it...but I'd been having weird pregnancy symptoms for about a month at that point, so I figured it would be reasonably accurate. Unless the bleeding threw it off.)

I can't take painkillers right now, so this is going to be a fun couple of weeks if it sticks around the whole time...

I also just noticed that my discharge smells really sour, like vinegar. Something else that usually only happens a few days before my period. I'm at a loss. What the heck is going on with me? I went up in there and checked and it's rather snot-like -forming small round clumps- and white.

Edit: Just because I've seen it come up on a lot of google searches, I ingest NO caffeine, so that's not the cause of my boob soreness. (Believe me I'd love to a lot of the time, but it makes me ridiculously sick.)
