Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.
So, do you get the "bad cramps" after you have had a spicy meal?
I had the spicy food about a week ago
before the occurence
And you are having the cramps now?
How is your stool during the cramps?
i also noticed that this happens just before my mentrusal cycle - a day or two before
but only with the combination of spicy food
my stool was soft
So, it was not loose like diarrhea.
at times somewhat like diarrhea
Sometimes, parasitic infection can cause such symptoms with cramps followed by loose stool.
why does it ony happen just before my menstrual cycle
During menses, chances of bacterial infection in the colon or the urinary tract is more.You can do good by taking supplements of probiotics daily available OTC.
You should however get an ultrasound of the uterus and ovaries to exclude any other possibility of for the pain.
I did have an ultra sounds done already and they were all okay
So this is why I think it is a colon issue
Alright take probiotics regularly and foods rich in good bacteria like yogurt daily.
can you reccommed a name of an OTC probiotic?
funny you said that - I read alot online and had a Greek yougurt yesterday for the first time and got a little relief
Yeah, that is always helpful.
You can take OTC FLORASTOR.
