Menopause :: Stomach Cramps VS. Uterine Cramps

May 4, 2015

I'm having a hard time distinguishing between cramps from the intestines/stomach and slight cramps from my "female parts"... Sometimes I think that I have a regular stomach pain, but I'm wondering whether the pains could be slight cramping from my uterus instead? Right now I'm most likely just passed the ovulation and should have my period in about 13 days. Would slight cramping during this time be normal for someone in perimenopause?

Menopause :: Stomach Cramps, Hot Flushes, Pains In Chest And Palpitations

i think I've been peri for a few months now, even though blood test says I'm not! , I've had hot flushes, pains in chest and palpitations, first doc said menopause, 2nd said acid reflux for which I'm now been treated, but I know this can be linked to peri as well.

my new symptoms are stomach cramps like I get when I'm due on, but it's mid cycle, my periods have been regular so far, is this how it all begins?

Post Menopause Bleeding After Cramps Like Ovulation Cramps

I had what felt like ovulation cramps last week and tonight have vaginal bleeding, fresh blood not old.

I did this in 2012 after my mom died, was checked pap smear, uterine biopsy and I feel those hurt, it was all good, they thought it might of been stress related because it lasted only one day.

My abnormally normal periods were only 1-3 days, they were one coming in, one day of heavy bleeding, and spotting on third day. But every 28 days like clockwork with no issues there. In my 20's I was told I had endometriosis and when they went to do the ultrasound the cyst had went away. I didn't take it any further than that but never had children and never took birth control. Cramps were always very painful, had to curl up in a ball, always had severe back pain with them as well.

Last week they were like that not quite as bad but nearly.

Is this just a fluke you all think? Even menopause I had no symptoms, when I turned 50 it shut off like a faucet never again until 2012, and now.

Contraception :: Mirena (IUD) Cramping And Stomach Cramps

I had a mirena coil inserted nearly 3 weeks ago. I had some bad stomach cramps one night with some reasonable bleeding for a couple of days afterwards. This then stopped about 7 days after insertion.

As I stopped bleeding, 8 days after insertion, me and my boyfriend decided to have sex. I was apprehensive but there was no issues and have been no issues since.

One thing I have got though, is pink discharge. It's been on and off since last Monday with occasional drops of browny coloured blood when I go to the toilet which is when I notice the discharge mostly, although sometimes it is in my underwear.

Running Beginners :: Stomach Cramps During A Race?

i get them every race i've ever ran, some worse than others the past few races i've ran my stomach cramps really hindered my racing ability. It normally occurs within the first mile of a 5k and gets worse as the race goes on no matter what i do to my breathing pattern (it usually just switches to another spot on my stomach if i get rid of it). I cant breathe in fully so im definitely not getting enough oxygen. The location of the stomach cramp varies all over my stomach. Is it because i have weak stomach muscles. Plus, now i think i pulled a stomach muscle because with an enormous cramp i pushed my finishing kick to beat another kid in the race and now it's slightly sore.

Alcohol :: Stomach Cramps And Nausea / Diarrhea?

I have diarrhea/nausea/dry heaves/stomach cramps/sudden urge to have a bowel movement and dizziness almost everyday of my life. Sometimes these symptoms are accompanied by a headache. I also have horrible indigestion and I'm a former alcoholic, I'm wondering if any of these symptoms could have been worsened by alcohol. I just feel like crap, consistently. I don't know what to do because everything I try seems to be ineffective. I can hardly drink water because of my stomach being upset and I have had no appetite for a few good weeks now. I'm also always tired. The severity of my symptoms come and go but always seem to be present.

I've considered that maybe I have IBS or Crohn's disease but I'm unsure due to some of my other symptoms.

I'm newly diagnosed diabetic and taking Metformin 500mg 2x a day. I have been taking it for about 10 days and have had the worse cramps and stomach pain!

For the past month I've experienced stomach problems. It started with diarrhea and severe cramps that caused bleeding(I'm assuming hemorrhoids). So I went to the hospital and they said they think it's diverticulitis but never got back to me but sent me home with antibiotics. Its been a few weeks and the pain is awful and it is effecting my life and work. It happens whenever I eat or lift things. I can't sleep right now because the pain. Luckily I only have diarrhea sometimes now but still I feel weak and the stomach pain is too much.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Stomach Cramps And Diarrhea For Three Weeks

I'm 20 years old and a couple of weeks after moving to France, I started having problems with my bowel. It got worse until I started having diarrhea and with the exception of two days, I now wake up each morning needing to go. I went to a doctor last week and they gave me some medication for slowing my bowel movements and firming up everything. It worked on the fourth day but now I've stopped using the medication and it's started up again. I was on a bus home last night and I was actually incontinent  I'm fine for the most of the day but sometimes it's just debilitating. I've been looking online and it seems that I'm a match for IBS. Can anyone help?

Cramps :: Leg And Foot Cramps

I've suffered from these for years. When I told the GP he prescribed 200mg quinine sulphate but I still had cramps - albeit fewer. so he prescribed 300mg tablets. I still get the cramps, perhaps not as frequently but it's quite distressing.

Leg cramps can be eased by standing on the leg and stretching it. Foot on the leg and stretching it. Foot cramps are quite different, my foot turns inwards and my toes turn position. Nothing but time can resolve it, my husband watches in amazement, as do I. It's quite painful.

A son says that lack of salt can cause cramps, might this be so? We have very low sodium chloride intake.

Periods Cramps After Sex

So my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time and since it was a heated moment there wasn't protection involved. About an 1 1/2 later, I started to have pretty bad "period cramps". I usually have bad period cramps and heavy periods and my period is due very soon. What do these cramps mean? Are they just regular period cramps? (My period app says I should be getting my period today)

Cramps :: Overuse Of Muscles

They started a week ago, two days after a very strenuous run and arm workout. I don't run a lot and the exercise really wore me out and my quads were sore for a couple days. Then I started getting cramps in my left forearm and left anterior calf muscle (above the ankle). They come multiple times in the day simultaneously for about 5-10 seconds then fade away together as well. I've tried every home remedy(massaging, hot bath, stretches) and none have affected the frequency or intensity of the cramps.

I visited a primary care doctor who drew blood to check my electrolyte levels and gave my head a ct scan, both came back normal and they wrote me a script for Flexeril which helps me sleep but does not relieve the cramping.

The next day I visited a neurologist who gave me an EEG to confirm I was not experiencing partial seizures. He then put me through some basic strength tests and confirmed I wasn't experiencing strength loss in my affected limbs and said he didn't think He referred me to another neurologist who specializes in muscles to "make myself feel better" who I'm seeing Friday.

I've been able to rule out some scarier stuff with the CT scan and the fact that I haven't been feeling any weakness (other than soreness), or other symptoms other than the cramps themselves. Maybe it's a slipped disc? That's the only thing I've read that makes sense. This seems like too long a period for something as simple as an overworked muscle

Long story short, all the doctors I've seen haven't found anything other than overuse of muscles and long cramping. I'm hoping anyone who has experienced something similar or knows someone who has can provide any advice or insight into what's going on. Thanks!
