Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps and diarrhea


Avatar f tn Not sure if this is just normal but since 3 this afternoon I've been getting diarrhea type cramps and menstrual type cramps that are getting stronger with time. They don't go away with changing position or anything. Im 33 weeks. Any advice?
1577200 tn?1331729319 maybe sound crazy but I have an odd-ball question concerning menstrual cramps and how they compare to it?
Avatar f tn Hello everyone! I have a question about menstrual cramps, and any help would be appreciated. I have been suffering extremely painful cramps for years now, ever since I got my first period when I was 13. I'm currently 18 and am going off to college very soon, but I have no idea how to deal with these cramps that incapacitate me for an entire day. My cramps get so bad that I usually faint. For example, when I was around 14 my period came in the morning but I still went to school.

The mildest form of menstrual cramps are sometimes just a minor discomfort, a heavy feeling in the abdominal region. Women suffering the most extreme menstrual cramps are sometimes forced to change their regular routine for a few days. In primary dysmenorrhea, there is no underlying physical condition causing the pain.
1043607 tn?1253240417 I've been having these painful cramps for almost a week now, without vomiting or diarrhea. They almost feel like menstrual cramps - in the back - except for they are higher up, and all through out my midsection. I have never had menstrual cramps that felt like this, and I'm not near my period. I would say it's similar to the feeling you get when you have diarrhea, but I'm going to the bathroom as usual, no constipation either. They are becoming increasingly more painful and it's kind of scary.
Avatar f tn I wondered about IBS but I have no other problems but this one, and it seems that IBS often involves diarrhea and constipation. No gall bladder problems. No menstrual issues, never had kids. No family history of this as far as I know. I am seeing my PCP soon but in the meantime was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or if you have any ideas as to what might be causing it. Thank you very much.
Avatar f tn Avoid magnesium carbonate, sulfate, gluconate, and oxide. They are poorly absorbed (and the cheapest and most common forms found in supplements). Side effects from too much magnesium include diarrhea, which can be avoided if you switch to magnesium glycinate. Most minerals are best taken as a team with other minerals in a multi-mineral formula. Taking a hot bath with Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) is a good way to absorb and get much needed magnesium.
Avatar n tn And actually, lately its been really hard for me to sleep too, so i dont know whats going on. i've also had menstrual cramps, and i'm suppossed to start my period next wednesday, so i made sure to buy the two pack of tests so i can test again if i miss my period.
Avatar f tn Recently, the past 5-7 days, I have been experiencing some uncomfortable cramps, soft of like heavy menstrual cramps accompanied by bad diarrhea. I am now 35 weeks pregnant, I was just curious if anyone else experienced this in the last few weeks of their pregnancy, if it is normal and pregnancy related or if I have just come down with a bug that is unrelated to the pregnancy.
Avatar n tn I have been having these cramps/contractions, dull lower back ache, increased vaginal discharge, and diarrhea all this morning. I don't know what early labor feels like. I just know I am uncomfortable. I have lost pieces of my mucous plug over the past 2 weeks. Now I find out I am dilating. Is this labor? I understand it's normal to cramp/contract slightly after a cervical exam, but for two days+. It seems odd to me. Any support???
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old (almost 30 and I am having what feel like menstrual cramps that don't seem to last all day--mostly at night. These started about 10 days ago--way before my period. I have felt a bit constipated as well, but today I have what feels like stomach cramps with diarrhea. I may also be pregnant, as I know that you can have "implantation cramps" and my breasts feel sore. I will be doing a home pregnancy test tomorrow morning.
Avatar f tn I'm 27 and am noticing that every month my cramps get worse and worse so bad that I can't walk and even breathing hurts needless to say I can't move. I had a cyst rupture on one of my ovarys 2 years ago putting me in the worst pain ever. The pains I have now are similar but don't last as long as my ruptured cyst did, what could be happening in my body to make my cramps hurt this bad every month?!?! Please help!!!
Avatar n tn i have had bleeding for 3 months and have bad cramps and blood clots and stopped bleeding for 10 days in that 3 months finly stopped 1 day well should i say more im waiting 1 more mounth then ???????????
Avatar f tn I have very painful menstrual cramps to the point where I can't go to class and I have to curl up in a ball and wait it out in bed. My lower back hurts, I get diarrhea, I feel sore and bloated all over. My periods are regular and I see a gynecologist (she doesn't answer my questions though, I guess it's time to switch to a new doctor).
Avatar f tn For the last week I had frequent trips to the bathroom with bright I mean bright green diarrhea. When I poo my stomach sometimes gives me bad bad menstrual cramps and bad pain in my back that lasts way past the toilet. It had nothing to do with me straining because I really haven't been doing that.
5070096 tn?1363139197 My intestines often get disturbed for my period, and I can end up with gas and diarrhea. And gas pain can feel like getting stabbed in the gut. Especially since you mentioned nausea and having to poop, I suspect this is part of the problem. I used to take 800 mg of ibuprofen to deal with my cramps, because without pain killers I wanted to curl up and disappear. Birth control pills might be the way to go for you. They can seriously lower cramp pain and the amount of bleeding.
Avatar f tn Which helped me feel a little better but after about three bites of banana bread I got intense stomach cramps and diarrhea. Is this from the fasting?
Avatar f tn of cold chills with a combination of nausea and diarrhea. These symptoms only happen once I have laid down for bed and last from 40 minutes to 3 hours. The chills are the worst part-and shake my whole body. They seem to happen before my menstrual period (if that makes a difference) and appear about once every other month to once every three months. I am so confused at what can be causing them. I don't know if it is a food allergy, or hormone related, or anxiety related.
Avatar n tn I have been researching all over the web about heart palpitations and menstrual cycle as I thought I was going insane. I'm 25 years old and I started getting palpitations of November 2011, I was on birth control pills during that time and stopped it after I got my panic attack due to hormones I was getting mad palpitations, shortness of breath, I felt crazy. My mom works at the lab and drew my blood and everything was normal that gave me some sense of relief.
Avatar f tn First I thought I was pregnant but home test came back negative three times and now i have no idea what is wrong with me. The pain feels like the worst menstrual cramps you could ever imagine. Makes giving birth look like nothing. The cramps come and go. I also have nausea and diarrhea. I have also noticed my stomach tightening when the pain gets really bad. I have had a colonoscopy already to rule anything from that out.
Avatar n tn From the cycle itself I still encounter the terrible pain, which causes nausea, which somehow leads to fatigue, and I also have horrible diarrhea to boot. I was put on the pill, but my doctor now does not recommend ANY kind of hormonal birth control because of how depressed/angry/crazy it made me. It did help my cycles, though. I have tried everything I can think of.
Avatar n tn 30 am this past Sunday with stomach/abdominal cramps. After I got up I took Ibuprofen and ate toast and the pain nearly went completely away the rest of the day. the pain came back just very mildly that evening and I took more Ibuprofen and was able to sleep all night with no pain. On Monday I had just 1 or 2 mild cramps and thought I was fine and over this then 10 minutes after I went to bed Monday night the cramping was back nearly as bad as the pain I woke up with Sunday morning.
Avatar f tn Worse than menstrual cramps, and reminded me of when I was experiencing contractions from labor. The pain radiated to my lower back also. The pain has been off and on for a whole week now, with some days being better than others. It gets a lot worse if I'm even the slightest bit hungry, and as soon as I eat the cramps stop. I assumed it was food poisoning since this all started immediately after my meal on Monday, but I've never heard of it causing cramps for a week straight! Any ideas?
Avatar m tn It did seem to help a little a did relieve most of the diarrhea but the cramps and back pain did not subside. I had irregular periods and I am on the last week of my bc pill so I SHOULD be starting soon however I started spotting last night and it got a little heavier today but still not like a period flow.
Avatar n tn It may be associated with other symptoms like diarrhea, bloating sharp rectal pain and abdominal cramps. It is best to get yourself evaluated by your gynecologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. I do hope it helps. Take care and best regards!
Avatar n tn I still havent had a menstrual cycle and it has been 5 weeks and 4 days since my miscarriage. We have been married for almost 13 years and we have been together for 19 years and we havent been blessed to have a child yet although we want one very badly. He is to the point after this miscarriage that he said " Im giving up". Im on fertility treatment (Clomid 100mg) and my husband has been tested and has a low sperm count.
Avatar n tn About 4 months ago, I had a cup of Swiss Miss chocolate hot drink and within 10 minutes had nausea and severe stomach cramps. After vomiting I felt much better. Obviously, I have stayed away from Swiss Miss. Lately, however, on occasion, after eating something fried (pancakes, for instance) I again have the cramping, naseua and vomiting. I'm hoping it's not something horrible like colon cancer. My friend, Amy suggested Irritable Bowl Syndrome as the culprit.
Avatar n tn However, AS the day and night wore on I felt like I had cramps and pain. I have had quite a bit of gas and diarrhea.. We shall see what tomorrow brings.. I have decided to work from home and see how the day goes. Oh FYI... Not sure but do be careful what you eat, And I would suggest very small amounts.
Avatar n tn loss in blood pressure that I couldn’t even hold my head up, felt like I would pass out; severe stomach cramps and liquid diarrhea, in my case there was no hard stool. I have experienced this problem probably 5 or 6 times in my life and I am 46. Difference today is that I did not eat a thing all day, only 3 cups of coffee over a 2 hr period and this episode occured around noon. In the past I some times felt like vomiting, but today I did not.
Avatar f tn I was put on bed rest do to it being too early. Ive also been into prelabor. Ive been having contractions and menstrual like cramps but for the last 2 days ive had diarreah. Is that a sign of real labor?
