Ok, I just wanted to ask all the women of the board: what do you do to alleviate cramps? How effective is it? When do you know when the pain is abnormal enough to see a doc about it?
My gynecologist has given me meds for the pain in the past, but nothing that really helps. I think I'm going to see a new doc because he really isn't helping me at all.
I would consider a hyst at this point, and I'm only 26 so I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would do it for me.
So far today I have: taken a warm bath, taken 1600 mg of ibuprofen, used a heating pad, vomited (which I do *every* month because of the pain), even the 'M' word (that helps... as does sex.... same concept)... and now I'm still in pain, shaky, icky... and I have a class to go to and work tonight.
Any brilliant ideas?
