Bad menstrual cramps.

Visiting Grandparents, too embarrassed to ask for medicine. Tried to find some but there was nothing good. No heating pad here. Please help me feel better! It's been hurting for an hour now and I'm out of breath from the pain.

I'm all for telling your grandma. You'd be surprised at some of the pains they have lived through. However, if you are still uncomfortable asking her, she may have a bath tub. Try taking a bath. Also, decaffeinated tea will help. Your uterus is stressing in releasing it's inner wall. You need to try and relax that area. Grandmas know all about taking naps too. Maybe ask for some tea, a bath, and some ibuprofen. I certainly hope you feel better. I know it is a drag to be somewhere you are suppose to be happy and feel gloomy. Take Care. I hope you feel better

Just tell your Grandmother. Clearly she's had children, or you wouldn't be here, so there is no reason to be embarrassed. She'll understand and be able to help get you something to take for the pain.

Lie flat on your back, and bring your knees up to your chin. That should help(:

Ask Grandma for a hot water bottle. I bet she has one. (it may be old and unusable though!) She may have a heating pad too. Old people get muscle cramps and ailments too. Just ask. She will probably be more help than you think! You really think Grandma didn't have to deal with this stuff earlier???? ASK

In a pinch you could use a large ziplock with hot water in it. JUST WRAP IT IN A TOWEL

a pop bottle filled with warm water can be used for a heating pad. wrap it in a towel if its too hot for you.

Bananas! They help. And if you can ask if you can take a bath.

Don't be embarrased to talk with your grandma. She will understand WAY more than you know. She is a female, too. In fact, you may be following her footsteps and she can help you in ways she did. :)
