Have you ever experienced muscle cramps around your stomach or to be more exact at your lower abdomen during your period? That is one of the symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome or PMS. PMS can be very painful and it may cause some people to lie on their bed all day long. The other physical symptoms are fatigue, headache, and et cetera. What about emotion symptoms? You must have heard those people who make jokes "I bet she's on her period" if there is any woman who mad at nonsense stuff. Well, mood swing is one of the PMS emotion symptoms. However, not every girl who like to mad at little things are confirmly on their periods. Perhaps they're just short-tempered women. Not just women tho, men can be short-tempered too.
When I was studying in my college, I had to take days off just because I couldn't help myself to walk around like healthy people. I had to lower my back a little bit as shown in the picture above due to the cramps. As for now, i have become a little bit better because I don't have to rest my body on the bed for a whole day but just for some hours, around 2 hours or less than that. I practically noticed this change when I started consuming healthy food which I'm gonna talk about after this. My father always forced me to consume this and that when I'm on my period to avoid pre-menstrual or to relieve it. Few years back, when I was 14 or 15, I used to consume the pink panadol pill but due to some reasons, I stopped consuming it. I actually heard from people that the pill isn't good for our kidney. It scared me a bit so I took cautious step by stop consuming it.
Okay, now I'm gonna share with you guys the tips that make me feel better during PMS.
1. The first thing that i'm gonna do when im on my period or before is to consume a table spoon of olive oil. The cramps isn't wild as it was before after i consume this magic oil. It is not just gonna relieve your menstrual pain but it can make your organs be in a healthier state as well.
2. Drink hot healthy tea such as green tea, chamomile tea or ginger tea. They do help!
3. Working out is one of the ways to fight your hormone changes that could trigger the PMS. Endorphins will make you feel better and it is a stress-relief.
4. Put the heating pad on your abdomen because it will help your muscle relax.
5. Sleep! Whenever you feel fatigue or headache, that means your body need sometime to relax for a bit. It can reduce your period pain too.
These are the tips that I practiced to help myself healed from period pain. Have a good day peeps!
