I am perimenopause and am 50 years old. My last period was almost 6 weeks since the last one and now  its seems I may be coming on again only 2 weeks after my last one. Is this normal, not happened before?

    I've read that this is normal too.  I have a question.  I typically have pretty bad cramps before my period starts but then they subside once I start.  I've had that same type of cramping for the last couple weeks consistantly with bloating.  Last night I woke up in severe pain, not only cramping but the pain went from my lower right abdomin to my side into my back.  After finally taking 3 Alieve the pain was manageable and is now back to bad stomach cramps.  Has anyone else had these symptoms?
