Question: Severe Cramps w/ back pain

 DesperatetoConceive21 - Sun Sep 18, 2005 6:32 pm

Okay, I recently wrote about getting off BCP, and now I have a different issue...
This morning I woke up with severe mestrual cramps, w/ lower back pain and nasuea and an overall feeling of ickiness. I have never had severe cramps, Maybe up to moderate, but never to the point that I felt sick. I took 2 500mg tylenol and it still took 45minutes for them to suside enough to go back to sleep, w/ a heating pad. When I woke up I still had them but they are very mild now, but I still feel sick. I think there is something wrong...please help! :( :cry:

User avatar Are you currently menstrating?

I am menstruating. The cramps havent returned to the full force, just slight ones.

User avatar I would say that you are probably just having a bad period this month. I wouldnt be concerned, unless it continues to happen, then I would get checked for endometriosis.
Unfortunatly, it is also possible you had an early miscarriage. There is no way to know for sure if that is the case or not. If you continue to bleed for longer than normal, or have any other problems, then see a doctor.
