12 year old with impossibly painful cramps...

My daughter started having horrible cramps last night with all the other symptoms, Headache, feeling yucky and tired, very emotional. 

She hasn't started her menses yet, but I'm certian she has the same horrendous cripling PMS (they have a new term to the extreme kind, I wish they had when I was a teen, or even before my hystorectomy)

What should I do? Sert up an appointment with her Pediatrition or a gyn? My poor baby. I hope she doesn't have polycycstic ovarian syndrome like me, too. Her older sister dodged that bullet.  :(

Advice! Please?!

I would take her to get looked at for sure, given your history

 Take her to the pediatrician, you don't know for sure if it's a gyn issue yet.

I really need to go to bed, but I'm too tired to get up and walk back there, lol. Poo.

Aww, poor baby.  If it were me, I would probably wait for at least her first or maybe even second cycle before going to the doctor.  Just to see if it does truly turn out to be that bad.  I've heard of girls hurting a lot while their body was trying to gear up to have the first period, but then things calmed down some once it actually started.

Use PMS pills, this will work.

I agree with you.

My daughter just started in Oct.  She's 13.  She has heavy bleeding, cramping and she has already had an ovarian cyst that ruptured.  We have her on Naprosin, it's kind of like alieve, but this is a perscription.  It seems to help so far.  She has had painfull ovulation since the cyst, but no rupturing of a cyst since that one time.  If that happens a few more times then I will just put her on the pill

 Given your history, I would talk to her doctor about it.  She probably doesn't need a gyno right now and she may be over reacting just not used to the type of cramps and body aches associated with a period.

If it persist don't ignore. I had similar symptoms and it wasn't my period, it was my appendix. Better safe then sorry.
