You might want to look up Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). One of the symptoms is cramps painful enough to disrupt daily life. The common prescription for this is birth control pills, they help regulate the hormones and thin the endometrial lining with prolonged use. A thinner lining is healthy and doesn't cause the body to contract so much to shed.

The best thing I've found is to curl up with a heating pad or take a long, hot bath. I've heard that fruits, vegetables, sesame seeds and ginger can help, as well as vitamin B, zinc, and calcium. Avoid smoking and drinking if you can, as both can make it worse.

Herbal teas like warm green or black tea can ease severe cramps. Also an exercise routine can help with the pain. Try doing sit-ups and a few stretches a couple of hours before bedtime. Warm baths can relax stomach muscles too. Sometimes even massages can help, especially on the lower back area.

One good natural remedy for cramps is to use a heating pad on your abdomen. Also, get plenty of rest if needed, and drink lots of water. There are also teas at herbal stores that can offer relief.

The severe cramps during the periods occur to some ladies so much so that they go to bed. Muscles go so much tight that they are unable to move. Proper treatment would be to take Vitamin E tablets and massaging of the lower legs with the mustard oil.
