Perimenopause relief? 😓
So I haven't had a period since September. Despite a few issues related to the drop in estrogen, it's been pretty great not having to deal with it.
So this morning I wake up with killer abdominal cramps. Been so long I actually thought there might be something seriously wrong. Then I realized what it was. Now I feel like death warmed over. Bleeding like a stuck pig, incredibly painful cramps, constipated, head aching, light headed, heart racing. Just plain miserable. My old fallback of ibuprofin did nothing and we no longer have our waterbed which used to be a great way to lessen the cramping. I'd dig out the heating pad but I don't know where it is.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this that don't involve a doctor? For all my health issues, I haven't felt this utterly wretched in months.
