I'm currently laying on my couch, convinced that I'm dying from cramps. I was so happy to get this period because I had a pregnancy scare and was waiting for it. But now I'm just in misery - my cramps have NEVER been this bad. I took 4 pamprin and it didn't touch the pain. I had a heating pad on my back AND another shoved down my pants, as soon as I take either of them off, I'm in agony. I spent 2 hours in bed rolling around, screaming and crying. I don't know what to do. My mom told me to take a vicodin, not sure if that's a good idea. I'm not on any birth control to help with them right now. I have to at least make it manageable so I can work tomorrow morning. Do you ladies have any secrets to ease your cramps?
