Today is my 24th birthday, and I'm currently on my cylce and I have been experianced/ still do have this pain. For me it comes for 5-35 seconds and goes away and comes back. When I have these pains I stop dead in my tracks, Grab ahold of anything nearby. I can fuction normally even with the pain like use the bathroom and release gas. The pain is like an icepick/ butcher's knife that travels thru my entire body that starts in the lower abdomen. I'm scared/ nervous to ask my doctor cuz I've asked my mom-moms are supposed to be all knowing- if she experianced it and I've asked my friends and no one has ever experianced this pain so I'm happy I've found women who know the pain, however I'm sorry we all experiance this pain. It's a pain I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I have found that if treated like "normal" cramp the pain lessens and goes away for longer period of time. Which is get a wash cloth/ bath rag wet under hot water- I do mean hot- and ring excess water out then place it on the area/ near the area. I know its not 100% practical for living a busy life stlye but hey I guess you could find a heat patch to put near it. I thought they came out with a heat pad for menstrual cylces anyways so that could work as well. I know it has helped me.View Thread
