Why do my periods make me sick? As in cold symptoms, for example, runny nose and sore throat?

Because the body reaction called the "period" is almost the same reaction body gives to a disease. So the outcome is expected to be similar.
If you have an infectious disease, immune system gets activated to remove the virus or bacteria. When you have your period, the same immune system cells gets activated to remove the uterine lining.
The immune system reaction in one direction can cause weakness in other so that might be your reason.

One of the symptoms of your period could be morning sickness (its not always in the morning) so that could be it take some Asprin or Ibiprofine to help

I don't know. That is strange to me. Maybe you should ask a gynecologist. I'm sure it's nothing serious, though.
