Cramping

Posted , 5 users are following.

Has anyone had severe ongoing cramping?  This is typically normal for me a day or two before starting my period but I've had nonstop cramping for weeks.  Is this normal with Peri?  Any comments would be greatly appreciated.  Alieve does take the edge off but 9 pills a day just to make it tolerable is not healthy, I don't think??  Thank you.

    Hi, omg I'm going through the same thing.and started a conversation on this yesterday lol but I too have had cramping /dull aches in lower backfor a couple of days now but I'm at the end of my period ( which has been on and off for a couple of weeks) I too sometimes have cramping before the period but like you it's just going on and on. :-( you're not alone.

      Hi,

      ?I found the conversation and have read the comments, thank you.  So helpful to know I'm not alone.  Very depressing when I read some of these symptoms last years....not sure how ppl are able to tolerate this for so long.  Thank you and try to make it a great day!

      I so agree with you...   I have no idea how woman can tolerate this for years and years.. I have read symptoms can last between 2-10 years.  Im only going into a year in July and cant wait for this to all be over.  I really wish that doctors and people who have no clue would get one...

    You can add me to this list smile  I get it mostly in my calfs and my right one more than my left.  I started to try and take notice of when I get them.  Most times it seems that when I start to get them is when my mood starts to change.  Very weird to me..

      I had someone once tell me that drinking pickle juice (small amount) helps with muscle cramps. I've tried it but not completely convinced enough to chug on the pickle jar.
