Super heavy periods... what's normal?

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read this...
I have really heavy periods, and I wanted to hear from anyone who has experience with this. I have an appointment with the doc tomorrow to get results from the bloodwork and sonogram. I'm on TOM right now (sorry if this is TMI), and have gone through 9 soaked overnight pads so far today. Sometimes, a big clot comes out and then I have to change the pad immediately or else it will cause major leakage and possibly fall to the floor (yuck, I know). I'm also anemic, dizzy and almost faint. Anyone have any similar experiences and can speak on how to make the symptoms (heavy flow, cramp pain) lessen?
