What have you tried?: What is "nothing is helping" mean? Have you tried naprosyn (naproxen) 2 pills first dose, 1 pill thereafter every 12 hrs. What about a heating pad? No matter if these help please see your doctor, need to consider endometriosis as a possibility

See GYN: Pms tx: nsaid’s, ssri’s, hormone meds, otc meds containing diuretics, warm bath, heating pad, exercise ; acupuncture are excellent for pms. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol ; salt. Get gyn eval to r/o underlying pathology. Consider omega- 3 fatty acids, evening primrose oil, chasteberry. magnesium (supplementation or through diet) or black cohosh with dr ok. Sipping chamomile can dissipate pain.
