However, this morning I woke up at six in the morning with EXTREME cramps. They were so extreme, I was woken from a deep sleep and thought that I desperately needed to pee. After I did, I realized it was cramps, so I took some Motrin. Like I said previously, they usually go away pretty fast, but these didn't! They're still around over an hour later, though not as strong. This is weird because I have been taking them almost the same time every night this month... Argh.
So, I have some questions: Do you think these nighttime/early morning cramping fits are connected to by BC pills? Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Do you think that these cramps might be caused by something psychological or that they are exacerbated by something psychological (because they usually go away so fast?) And finally, do you think this is something that I should be concerned/ go to the doctor about?
Thanks you all so much in advance! This is a great community of supportive, intelligent women and I am happy I found you all!
