They’re working on that study of period cramps, comparing some to a heart attack. Mine are definitely not that bad. What do your cramps feel like?

I was thinking about it last night, right when a bad one hit. It took me a while to find the words to describe it. I’d say it was like the only muscle my body wanted to use was my uterus. Any and all other movement or muscle usage felt achy and laborious. My body wanted to be still and only concentrate on this one thing. It was even a struggle to keep my eyelids open. It wasn’t as bad as that one time I got food poisoning because no nausea, but it had its similarities.

How would you describe it? I’d never thought about it except in the vaguest of terms & now I’m curious.
