I used to have regular periods but now a few years later they are very irregular, i spot after, or i will have another a week or two after. I used to barely have any symptoms but now i have horrible cramping, and backaches, i also throw up constantly. the vommiting has just started recently butnow when on my cycle the only time i can manage to get out of bed because my back and cramps is to run to the bathroom to throw up! is all of this normal and is there anything i can do to stop or help with the vomitting?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms are suggestive of severe dysmenorrhea. Do not ignore your symptoms. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for examination and further evaluation (investigations including hormonal and blood work-up, ultrasound scan etc) to look for any other underlying cause like ovarian cysts, PCOD, endometriosis, severe PID, etc. The cause for the irregularity of periods should also be looked for. Get started on treatment as indicated by examination and investigation results. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
