Dark areola lower back pain flue like symptoms can be signs of pregnancy or just PMS?

Dark areola, lower back pain and flu like symptoms are all signs associated with pregnancy. I suggest taking a pregnancy test and/or seeing your gyno Those are symptoms you would have later, maybe 4-5 months, into pregnancy, so see your DR. right away. Are your boobs sore, have you stopped your period, have you felt nauseas, lately. Those are some other symptoms you may have encountered if you are pregnant. Havent heard of dark areola for PMS. Buy a hpt for $8.00 and follow the directions and take the guessing out of the game.
