Hi, after watching Lorraine I realised that I have a lot of these symptoms and some I have had for a very long time. I suffer with severe period pains and have for years however they have recently got even worse, my periods are irregular and very, very heavy, over the past few months I have passed blood from bottom just before period (although I had thought this was my piles), before and during my periods my stools are looser and much more frequent leaving me quite sore, and I have felt nausea before I come on but on my last 2 periods I have been physically sick too. I am on my period at the moment and it's day 3 and the pain is still very bad. I am so pleased that I am actually off work sick at the moment and I saw Lorraine, as I hadn't though of telling my doctor of all of this, I'm normally working full time and I think I haven't really paid attention to how bad it makes me feel. I have other health conditions so I have been lucky to speak with my doctor today and I am going to see her next week (when not bleeding) for an examination but she thinks she may need to send me to see a gynecologist due to all of the symptoms. I'm just so thankful I was at home to watch this piece to give me the kick that I clearly needed.
