This has become a big issue for me lately and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows a reason for it.
When I run, I get menstrual cramps yet I'm not ON my period nor am I even close to being on it. They are REALLY painful, just like I'm on the first day of my menstrual cycle. The ones where you want to curl up into a ball and die.
I have absolutely no clue why this is happening. After slowing down to a walk and walking for about 5 minutes, they eventually just fade away, but it really puts a damper into my running.
Any info ladies?
