i having a really really painful monthly and i cant do anything! it hurts when i stand up or walk or move from any position other than fetal. if i could lay like that all day i would be totally fine but i have a 2 year old running around and a house to pack since we move on 2 days. i dont have a heating pad and the excedrin isnt working (midol has never worked for me)i cant een lay here for more than an hour before i have to co change my tampon. i even tried using a pad but i go through both of them pretty fast. its like an un nautral amount of bleeding…
does anyone have any home remedies or suggestions other that locking myself in a room and crying all night?

Um, I think you should call a doctor or go to the ER. That doesn’t sound like a normal period to me, unless this has happened to you before and you know it’s ok.

If it is really way heavier than usual I might go see a doctor about it.
If you don’t have a heating pad, maybe try a hot bath.

Yikes!!! Please call your doctor. If you are bleeding as much as you say you are, it sounds abnormal, your doctor will probably recommend some tests and do a sonogram. Take some hot showers, they may help, other than that I’m not sure, but I can sympathize. I hope you feel better soon!

it hapens every now in then but not often. its like a once every 6 months thing for me (it runs in the family plus im anemic). i cant sit in the bathtub till she goes to sleep either. i tried to take one while she was asleep but Fiance needed me to call some numbers for the new house which took all of nap time. im gonna try to take another iron pill and drink lots of water so im hoping it will help. once she goes to sleep in 3 loooong hours im going to make some hot tea and soak in the tub hopefully.

You are deficient in calcium! Depending on your bodies mineral supply, you may or may not be picking it up. I had excruciating cramping and rates of blood loss that seamed unreal at times!
Take 1 capsule Cal-Gluconate (40mg calcium) at every meal, so 3x per day. Do it for a month! Don’t worry about drinking or eating your calcium , it will never be enough!

Well, supposedly eating bananas can help cramping, though bananas make me sick so I can’t personally vouch for that. Do you have any medicines with Naproxen in it? It’s an anti-inflammatory that works for me sometimes, though you shouldn’t take it until the 4-6 hours on Excedrin are up.

@galloway111: I was actually going to suggest that also!
I don’t have a heating pad either, but I actually got a men’s sock (one of the mid-calf high ones) and filled it with dry rice. I put it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, and wrap it in a hand towel — it’s AWESOME!! It really helps with cramps, plus it’s portable and the heat lasts for 20-30 minutes.
