What's the best way to deal with cramps?

I haven't had my period in months, I finally started and my cramps are absolutely horrible. Im on a disease medication right now, and can't take any other medicine. Know of any other ways to help cramps?

Other than taking medicine you can deal with your cramps by placing a heating pad on the lower part of your abdomen. This helps to increase the blood flow in that area and relax your muscles. Check out http://www.livestrong.com/article/97896-natural-relieve-menstrual-cramps/ for more tips.

Kassey I am sorry you are hurting :( sometimes different things work for different people, for me staying active, walking and moving around helps relieve cramps but for my sister, she curls up in fetal position and says that helps. In school they used to tell us to lay flat on our back and put our feet up on a wall so our knees were bent like we were sitting in a chair. If none of this works you can call a 24 hour pharmacy and ask to speak to the pharmacist, tell them what medications you are on and ask them if there is anything you can take that wont conflict with the medicine. Pharmacists know more about medicine than doctors and they are always willing to help,

I'm not sure about being active. I've been chasin' around my one year old all day, and it seems to be getting worse. I'll have to try laying down and putting my feet up though. Thanks! (:

Use a heating pad, but do not sleep with it on and don't get burned.
