: Hi. Does anyone in here have this only during thier periods? For days I have horrific stomach pains, vomiting, stomach convultions, and constipation but they only happen during my menstrual cycle. The pains are so bad that I am literally unable to even walk myself to the bathroom without assistance. My doctor says that she thinks it is hormonal but she is not sure what it is. Does this sound like IBS?

My IBS was always worse during my periods and right before my periods. I'm going through menopause right now (I'm 35) and when I have a hormone fluctuation, my IBS is worse. The only thing I was able to do for it and the cramps was to curl up with a heating pad and naproxin or anaprox. Near a bathroom I might add...
