Wind causing pains that feel like very intense period pains?

Hi I'm 16 and have been dealing with this perticular problem for a little while tbh it driving me mad. Had anyone exsperiance period cramp like pains (I'm not on my period and no where near to getting off my pill I do 2 months back to back because of my periods) it makes me want to double over and on some occasions made me close to passing out. I need to know if this has happened to anyone and if u went to the docs about it what did they say x

Yes, this is common. Your doc can prescribe you an antispasmodic to help you with this and stop the cramps.

However, if you find you continue having this problem, consider that it may be stress related, in which case any relaxation you can do will benefit you.

This article explains the stress mechanism that can be behind diarrhea and constipation, but your reaction could have a similar root cause: sickofibs.com/ibs-symptoms/...

I used to get horrific cramps and trapped wind. I was in Scotland at the time. I was recommended mebevrine, colpermine (you can buy it in pharmacies) and kalms (can also be bought) the mebevrine is an antispasmodic, the colpermine is a peppermint capsule which controls the swelling and trapped wind and the kalms helps with the anxiety that can trigger a lot of these symptoms. Hope this helps


I take mebeverin daily and it doesn't seem to help having a really bad flare up been having diarrhoea for four days In a row with pains
