I get cramps, hot flushes, sharp pains,running tummy, nausea, sometimes dizziness...its very crippling. Ive been using buscopan....any advice as to what i can do? heat pads dont seem to help...is this normal or do i have a problem? thanks

It is normal. Try Ponstan or the oral contraceptive.

Best wishes
