Hi since i was 12 i have had a problem like every other month on my period i get dizzy, hot then cold throw up then passout. And the pain from the cramping is umbearable. i have been to so many doctors and noone can tell me why. I have to get help i cant take it any more. I am 22 now ans still have these what i call spells. I would love more than anything just to have an idea of what it is.

User avatar Dear Jennifer,

People react to different degrees of pain differently. Some people will take severe pain lightly and some will take light pain as being very severe and there are people in between.

The feeling of being hot and cold, the vomiting and the passing out are all a reaction to pain and they mean that the pain is very severe.

i think it would not be a bad idea if you have a pelvic exam and an ultrasound of the pelvis to make sure you don't have a condition called endometriosis. If the ultrasound does not show any thing, a ct scan of the abdomen and pelvis could be done.

You will have to use stronger anti-inflammatory conditions at the time of your period.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
