I never ever get period pains but today I feel like I am going to explode. Today is worse than any IBS attack I have had; and believe me they are REALLY painful.My stomach is killing me, it's like I'm trying to move a clot or something, but nothing is letting me. I want to lie down but I have heard that lying down with period pain can sometimes make it worse. Last time I had pain this bad, I ended up in the ER but that was mainly due to IBS attack (so I thought) and I was passing clots as big as your fist.I really don't want to go to the ER again, as I spend all day there and discover nothing. Oh please help me..this is agony.MD's Gal.
