Hi. I am in a lot of pain from my period. Below my abdomen, my legs, my bottom, my back and my pelvis hurts. I am severely weak. I am vomiting and I have diarrhea. I am extremely fatigued and dizzied. I have passed out before on my period. My skin has gotten very pale. I can barely stand. It is day 2. Yesterday was much worse. My doctor just gives me pain medicine buy it doesn't help and I am wondering if it is something more serious. I have to miss 2-3 days from school due to my period.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I can understand you are having mood swings and severe pain during your cycle.Yes.Pain relieving medication are not sufficient here and you might need some hormonal pills for avoiding those painful cramps and other complaints.Often we prescribe simple birth control pills for this.You meet your doctor again or proceed for a second consultation.Depending on your age and other factors and examining you,she/he will advice you accordingly.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
