Cramp remedy?

What's your home remedy for cramps? Mine aren't normally this bad but I took Plan B earlier this week and my period has come WAY early. Tylenol didn't help :/. I'm about to send my hubs out to Walmart to buy a heating pad.

  • I do 800 mgs of Advil when I used to have them (which is an RX strength). Haven't had one since I had my first DD ;o)
