Bjw1995, I'm sorry you're going through both at the same time. I had a hysterectomy due to excessive cycles 2x/month, at 34. I don't have lupus that I know of. They're trying to diagnose symptoms now. Anyway the only advice I can give is heat source across the abdomen (I used hot water bottles but don't know if they sell anymore). Also about 2-3 oz of dark red or purple wine helps to ease the cramping. Check with your doc first in case you can't mix wine with your meds. Praying for you. 🙏🌼
I anyways have a hot water bottle in my belly and back this time of month, but it just feels as though somebody is stabbing me.. As for the wine, I just have this thing about not drinking in the house!
