Severe cramps before period

Just wondering if anyone else gets severe cramps like 2 weeks before their period. I have the worse cramps before, and then feel immediately better as soon as I get my period.

Today I finally got it, after being 8 days late...I had sharp abdominal pains, dizziness, severe bloating, total lack of patience, and was almost's one of those periods you never forget!!!

I'm contemplating going to my gyno to see if there's something wrong. I'm wondering if I have endometriosis or perhaps something else. The pain was overwhelming, something I can't, and I know my husband can't, do every month.

I was so mouthy, divorce came up.

Any suggestions?

Re: Severe cramps before period

I usually get cramps, bloating, as well as swollen and soar breasts about a week before my periods. The first day of my period I have severe cramping. The rest of the symptoms go away in a few days. I don't know what to tell you. I just know that I, literally, feel your pain. I am considering getting the dpero shot in hopes to wipe out my period completely. Good luck.

Re: Severe cramps before period

This is called PMS. When it is really severe or bother some you should make an appointment to see your doc in the future and see if they won't recommend medication to help you through this.
