    Share your best remedies for PMS/period cramps. I think I've tried nearly everything there is to ease the pain. For me, the solution is heat. I usually warm up the heating pad and rest with it across my abdomen, which usually helps at least temporarily. If that doesn't work, there's always chocolate to help distract me from them. lol

    Personally? Walking. If I'm not moving then the cramps usually hit me and it's like 'after eight or nine years ... this is still really annoying.' Staring at a computer helps focus my mind on what I'm doing so I'm not paying attention to the pain, but homeopathy remedies? No clue honestly, I've never tried any. I'm a 'shut up and put up with it' person, it's become annoying pain rather than actually painful. To me they just feel like someone taking a jackhammer to my pelvis.

    I was having that same problem. It was awful. I have been taking Evening Primrose Oil supplements daily for about four months and it has made a huge difference in my PMS symptoms and cramps. It took a couple of months to really notice a difference but it's been so much better. Definitely worth a try!

    I always use a hot water bottle as that is the only thing and rest. Chocolate always helps too @Zynni and a nice warm bath. I sometimes like a hot chocolate too, as they helps me psychologically and with some shortbread dunked in it.

    Well, Purrdy, a "jackhammer to the pelvis," sounds like actual pain to me lol. I get very uncomfortable (have some female issues) but I find ways to manage. My daughters also started getting bad cramps though, so I was hoping maybe I'd find some ideas that they could use. Midol for everybody! (washed down with hot chocolate) lol.

    I just stuff myself with ice cream. It does not always work for cramps, but it sure makes me feel better! Also, I kick my boyfriend and then he puts his hand on my belly. So, I guess, heat? And indulging.

    I never took any pill for it. I don't know, I just don't like the idea.
