Tummyache! :( - April 18th 2010, 10:59 PM

I just got my period yesterday and today is the heavist day, I took a Midol and those don't really help much with headaches and tummyaches.
Girls, what do you do to help settle your stomach and put headaches off when you are on your period? Any suggestions?

I find that Iburofen works best along with a lovely and warm bath. Some people suggest that exercise works best!

I usually try to exercise when I'm on my period. It usually shortens and lightens it some and makes the cramps a little better.
I also try to sleep more, which I find helps.
As far as medicine? Depending on the severity, I take 2 or 3 extra strength tylenol or 2 tylenol arthritis (as weird as that sounds). Also.... Thermacare heat wraps kick ass!
I also heard from my personal trainer that eating a tablespoon of pickle juice, mustard, or vinegar help relieve cramps. I have yet to try it, but apparently everyone he knows who has (for both menstrual cramps and other cramps), has had good results.

Paracetemol works for me but other's have said Ibuprofen so yeah either one lol
Sleeping can help it too, it'll put your mind off it,
Use a hot watter bottle and put it on your lower stomach, that surely helps alot xxxx

Your heart's tangled up in silence,
It's time to let go,
Feel the light,
I know it's easier to hide,
But you gotta let go,
Feel the light,
Let go and feel the light.

The only thing that helps me is to lay in the fetal position with a magic bag on my tummy. Haha. Meds do NOT work for me, whatsoever.

However, going on BC made my cramps bearable, whereas before, I didn't even want to get out of bed.

It's better to cross the line &
suffer the consequences
than to just stare at the line
for the rest of your life.

I've always found a hot bath helps... and a good poo! (helps relieve pressure)
other than that I up my vit E intake... i read somewhere that it helps and it seems to work for me.

A nice warm bath with Lavender bath oil.
Trackie bottoms and comfy, lazy clothes.
Exercise helps me too i find. We were running around playing games at Girl Guides all night Tuesday and I didnt notice the pain. I do Yoga too which is good.

When I am on my period, exercise does help some.
Also sleeping helps a great deal.

Meds, however, have no effect on me.

Hey there,

Personally, I find keeping moving does help, so you may want to try out sport or even something more gentle, such as going for a walk. Applying heat is the most helpful thing for me though, so if you have a hot water bottle or electric blanket to put over your stomach, that could help, too.
I think that the best thing to help with other pains is to simply take painkillers at regular intervals, such as paracetemol or ibuprofen. If you ask at your pharmacy, they could also recommend something to specifically help with your period pains. If the problem still persists and seems very painful even after trying out some of these suggestions, I'm sure that you doctor would be happy to help.

Take care.
