Unclear: For most women, cramping on day #3 of period is still normal, so not too concerned about that. Ibuprofen can help with pain. Pain in left leg and arm likely nothing to do with period, other than ^ prostaglandins assc w/ period can cause body/muscle ache. Could be strain on that side of body from sleep position? See dr. If worried.
