My mom always told me to eat a banana. It actually worked, or you can eat a pill like advil or a cramp pill. i also ironed a shirt and putted it in the area it hurts then lay down. it would stop the cramping

well.... i heard from a friend after you take a pill and it seems like it takes forever to start working try and pull your hair. (not hard) it distracts your brain and focuses on your hair being pulled and not your cramps
Although cramps are uncomfortable, they don't mean anything is wrong. Cramps usually occur only at the beginning of the period and then they tamper off. For most women, they are noticeable but not bad enough to ruin their day. However, some women have cramps that are more severe. Fortunately, there are many ways to deal with cramps to make them less unpleasant. Some girls rarely experience cramps, others have them more frequently, and a few are troubled by them almost every month. Since cramps can vary from a mild, achy feeling to severe pain, what you do about them depends on how bad you are feeling. If your cramps are mild and last a day or less, you may be able to just ignore them. If they make you too uncomfortable for that option, then nonaspirin pain pills, or medications designed especially for period cramps-all of which can be purchased at any drugstore-may be enough to make you feel OK and able to do things you normally do. Warmth also helps relieve cramps, so can try taking a long, hot bath or placing a heating pad or a hot water bottle on your stomach.
If you've tried what everyone else said and it doesn't work you might want to try exercising (dont strain yourself only try it if resting doesnt help) my friends mom is a nurse and she said there are stretches you can do that ease the muscle or whatever and make it stop hurting. I dont know what they are so try googling them but apparently they work really well.

On various sites I have found a lot of people have suggested light exercise, I really wouldn't try it as moving around makes the pain much worse (for me anyways), I would recommend staying as still as possible in the most comfortable position you can find (usually laying down) and if possible going to sleep (this may not be possible for you but i can sleep through pretty much anything), although i don't feel completely better till the next day, this the only thing that works for me and get really severe pains every month.
