I hear ya. PMS is the only time when I am praying please be ok please be ok please be ok. Thing s are looking up thought through pills for me , Bentyl , Zyprexa , Calcium , and for that time of the month the maximum streght Midol. I find the cramps and D have settled since I quit smoking stopped drinking caffiene around that time. Although as mine winds down to a close I feel a little more gassy. I havent fixed that yet.Keep our head up and try all of your options. Good Luck!
