Menstrual Complaints

For women, menstrual disorders are one of the most painful afflictions that are experienced on a regular basis.

Menstrual pain patterns may vary widely from person to person. Pain may increase or decrease at night, may be continuous or not, and may intensify suddenly. It can feel like a weighty, pulling sensation and may radiate to the lumbar, sciatic, pelvic floor, or groin areas. The pain may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, migraines, fainting, fatigue, or dizziness.
