Horrible back pain during period

After I had my daughter I have the worst periods ever and to add I get the worst middle/upper back pain ever. I end up taking so much Tylenol through out the day I can’t enjoy anything. Even putting on my bra is bothers me. Does anyone have the same problem and what is the best/strongest over the counter pills for back pain? Should I see a chiropractor?

    Do some research on PMDD I’ve had it all my life and it got worse after having my LO.

    The back pain lasted me like the 3 months my son was born. It went away but I took Tylenol every time it became unbearable.

    I've always had painful period but it seems to be more painful after my kids. Just last month it was so painful that I get these sore cramps near my inner pelvic/thigh that I can't walk. I would take Ibuprofen 600mg every month during my cycle. However this month I decided to drink 1 cup V8 in the morning and 1 cup at night throughout my whole cycle. It seems to help tremendously. I still take Ibuprofen 600mg prescribed by my doctor but since drinking the V8 along with the Ibuprofen I experience no pain this time. I've looked up tomato juice actually helps people going through menopause. So I guess that's why it helped me during my period.

    Also in Asian belief don't drink anything cold or eat cold stuff such as watermelon or ice cream during your pms. Although I cheated and ate watermelon on my 1st day of period but the V8 seriously helped me have no pain.

    Doing yoga and stretches a week before my period has helped me. You can try a heating pad or drink tea to relax and unwind( i like yogi brand). Also try to massage with oils

    I would suggest seeing your gynecologist. I was having similar issues but with the first day of my period made me feel nauseated, extremely tired, and cramps like death. Luckily I had my annual coming up and waited for that. My dr prescribed me 800mg or ibuprofen to help with the imbalance. But of course, leave it up to my body to start a day sooner so I wasn’t able to prepare myself as I usually do. The ibuprofen did help with my cramps but I was still very tired and had a horrible headache.
