Cramps, cramps, cramps!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm 47 (almost) and still have my period.  My period started on the 8th of this month, went a week and now on the 24th I've got cramps so bad it feels like my uterus is trying to fold itself into squares.  Just so over this.  If it's not migraines, it's cramping, or not being able to sleep, shrieking at my kids..I know we're all in this together, and I'm glad..because this sucks and it's at least comforting to know that it's not just me alone here.

    Yes Yes!!!! I Agree and I am in the same boat. I had my period two weeks ago and now it's back again with absolutely CRAZY cramps. I drove to ER because I thought my ovarisn cyst burst. The line was out the door... Oh my gosh I thought okay I'm not dying and if I have to wait for hours in that line I will die. So drove right back home😜😜. It does feel like my uterus is folding in half. The cramps the back aches the nauseous the headaches the anxiety and the mood swings yikes I'm crying laughing yelling all at the same time, I agree this is a total nightmare. Can't wait till this is over for good. Take Care we are all in this together 😊😊

    I agree. It all sucks. I guess this is why they call it the change of life. The hardest part to accept is that there is little relief out there for suffering women. I have seen more research and introduction of new drugs for AIDS .Have a rant and offload to those who understand what you are going through.

    Hi sounds like magnesium might help, I take 300mg morning and have a cream at night to rub where cramps are, or have a nice warm bath in Epson salts.good luck.xx
