What do you do for awful period cramps? TMI warning
posted by queens86 to health & fitness (34 answers total) 4 users marked this as a favorite
I usually get somewhat bad cramps that are cured with an ibuprofen or two. Today I popped an Advil, went out, and half an hour later had to come back home because the pain was so bad.
I turned white and had dark circles under my eyes, felt faint and woozy, started sweating and then shaking with chills, and vomited about 7 times. The pain was probably some of the worst pain I have ever felt in my entire life; I just got out of bed after laying down for about 6 hours.
This has never happened to me before! I have been on BC in the past but none now. Has anyone had experience with cramps like this? What did you do for them? I don't want to be incapacitated next month.
My question is twofold:
a) What can I do to lessen pain/vomiting should this occur in the future?
b) is this a possible bad sign of anything health-wise?
