So painful! HELP!! possible TMI...but probably not

I've always had extremely painful, dibilitating, cramps which go all the way through my back, to the point where I get dizzy and shaky and sometimes even pass out. So far I have only found things take the edge off. But its gotten even WORSE now that I've had kids. It's seriously like all of the pressure from having the boys comes back and for the first couple days I feel like i've JUST given birth. Everythings painful to the touch and if I tense up at all I'm litterally gasping from it hurting so bad and the flow is super heavy. I have no Idea what's caused this or how to rectify it but I cannot  stand doing this every single month. Does anyone have ANY idea of what it could be? and before you suggest it- I don't have endometriosis lol.

Sounds like a spasmodic uterus. Mine did that during my period. I use red clover infusions that i buy on line. It turned it around for me.

Ouch, that sounds awful. Have you talked to your GYN? Other than endometriosis, I don't know of any other reasons, but you shouldn't have to live like that. If your doc can't find the reason, I'd find one who can.hugs

I know exactly what you are talking about. I had such horrible periods that I would be bedridden for at least the first three days and the flow was near hemorrhaging. I had seen sooooo many doctors and they all said it was normal, when I started having kids they would get better, blah, blah, blah. WRONG!!! I knew I already had PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) and it could have been affected by that. But then I started having cramps all.the.time. Every day. And when my period started they worsened. After having my kids, it still got worse. I don't know how many times I went to see a doctor or specialist. Many times they made me feel like it was all in my head or that I was making a bigger deal out of it. I had exploratory laparoscopy surgeries. Nothing was ever found. Everything looked 'normal'. After my 4th baby I decided to get the Mirena IUD so I would get some relief from it all, hopefully. Everything was getting better although I still had very painful cramping everyday with no bleeding. And then about 9 months after the IUD was in, I started bleeding horribly. And it wouldn't stop. So I had it removed and then things Really got worse. I was basically hemorrhaging. They finally decided to do an emergency hysterectomy. The surgeon discovered two grapefruit sized fibroid tumors in my uterus and that I had a disorder called adenomyosis. It's along the lines of endometriosis but its growths within the uterine walls themselves. I'm not saying this is what's wrong with you but just somethings to look into to get checked out.
Long story short, don't wait too long to figure out what's going on within your body. You don't need to suffer!!! If your doctor doesn't really listen to you and take you seriously then keep finding one who will. Good luck and feel free to message me if you need someone to talk to!!

I have these. I use a heating pad and become immobile for an entire day :/ I've passed out from the pain a few times on my DF and he freaks out when it happens. If I tell him I have bad cramps he takes over the household and the kids and lets me rest. My OB/GYN put me on BC to help control it. It helps sometimes but there are times when it flares up again :( I have the merina IUD and I only experience the horrible cramping once in a great while.
