Unhappy BAD cramps

I often get period-like cramps no where near my period. Over the past few days they have been BAD. Last night I was in such pain...they seem to be worse when I'm lying down.

Yeah, yeah, I should probably make an appointment, but does anyone know what this is? It's been a couple of months since I've gotten a period (this is normal for me) but I really don't think they are menstrual cramps.

I'm only 25.

Re: BAD cramps

Sometimes I get horribly debilitating cramps when I'm ovulating. They can stop me in my tracks and take my breath away. It feels like someone is stabbing me with a knife. They are called Mittelschmerz and aren't uncommon. Just take pain killers, it's all you can do. Your other option is to get on the pill so you don't ovulate.

Re: BAD cramps

They do happen about 2 weeks before my period so that is probably it...thanks.
