I hope this is related since its in regards to my severe menstrual cramps.
I have a prescription for painkillers that I only take for menstral cramps (they're that bad), and lately I've realised that when I take them, I will feel the normal effects of taking a narcotic; loopy, muscle weakness and just generally out of it. BUT I also still feel the pain of my cramps, which kind of defeats the purpose.
I tried upping the dosage and I just felt the effects more strongly but I was still in pain.
I don't want to have to take something stronger because I don't like being debilitated by medication (I can't drive when I take them) but I also have a low pain tolerance it seems.
Anyone know what this means or what I should do at this point?
