Faintness, and severe pain *please help*

I'm 20 years old and nearly every time that I get my period I have severe cramps, feel as though I am going to pass out (even if I am sitting), become really pale, feel like throwing up (but don't), feel like all the heat leaves my body and get hot all at once for a second then am cold for the duration, and I can do nothing but lay in bed in agony until it finally ceases. Taking Ib profen helps somewhat if I can take it soon enough. I've been having these symptoms since I started my period when I was 12. I was told that they are just a part of how it starts, but by now I'm starting to wonder. I've been doing some reseach, does anyone know if this sounds like it could be the result of anemia?
