Midol is something to use when woman has cramps during a period. It works for many ladies (although not all). Worth to try (the active ingredient there I believe same as Tylenol).

Don't worry. I can guarantee it won't make you a woman overnight.

Truthfully, I never had much luck with Tylenol. I've always had much better luck with Naproxen (AKA Aleve).

Other than that, there are a lot of things that can cause severe cramping. Not to freak you out, but that was one of my Mom's symptoms before she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Just get in to see your doc, have some bloodwork done, and see if you can figure it out.

Good luck!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

This and Mag phose (you can get it at health food store) when you get the cramp one mag phose under the tongue and cramp will go in an un-believable time.

Cal Mag as a preventive everyday. I'm one of those lucky (?) people that when I start doing a bit of work (full day of mountain biking, skiing or climbing etc) I get nasty nasty cramps in the legs (calf and hamstring). Cal mag made a HUGE different, I still carry the mag phos just incase.
