Sometimes, I feel just like that. I make myself sick with anxiety.

It’s normal, for me. I usually don’t eat for at least one full day, every month. There are times that it goes beyond nausea, and I will vomit.

@ANef_is_Enuf That happened to me today. Thank you for your answer.

@Ayesha try some chamomile tea. Hope you feel better.

Yes, I do that quite often. Try a nice, warm bath with a glass of gingerale, sometimes that helps.

@Adirondackwannabe I only have balls when I borrow my husband’s… But I do have this weird thing that feels like a nose…

The idea of vomitting, weght gain and cramps every 30 days or so strikes fear in my heart. Although there is the nose thing.

No vomiting or weight gain here, just the cramps and nausea. And more cramps. And cramps, did I mention cramps? The joy of it is- when you have endometriosis, you sometimes cramp all month long and have lots of ovarian pain. And nosebleeds. Damn, I love being a woman…

@Ayesha – I don’t know how old you are, but I was lucky enough to grow out of the nausea by the time I was 18. Of course, that took 7 years thank you very much Mother Friggin’ Nature but at least it stopped. I hope you feel better soon!

Ayesha's avatar

I’m almost 18. Hopefully I’ll get rid of it soon, sucks the energy right out of you. Thank you for your answer.

@Ayesha I just came across something that suggested pasta is good for PMS and menstrual pain and nausea.

Ayesha's avatar

That’s really interesting. I’ll give it a try. Thank you.

Yes, yes and yes again. I had the most awful cramps in the world. was extremely nauseous and ate almost nothing. I’m on depopravera (I don’t remember how to spell it). I now have NO periods, NO cramps, and NO nausea (unless I have like the stomach flu).

Lying down with a heat pad under you really helps. Also taking something like tylenol helps. Note about ibuprofen: even though it’s really effective for helping pain, it also makes your bleeding heavier because it slightly reduces your platelet count apparently, so use it only if no other painkillers are effective.

Midol is another good pill for cramps and nausea.

Ayesha's avatar

Thank you! I’ll look into it.
