Severe Menstual Cramping/Lower Back Pain

I am 47yrs old.  I have been experiencing bad cramps/lower back pain during my monthly cycle that only seems to be getting worse.  I am not having heavy bleeding during my cycle (mostly small blood clots).  My GYN has prescribed Naproxen for the pain.  I think he feels that I am in the Perimenopause Stage.  I have read several articles that my symptoms could be associated with Ovarian Cancer.

Abdominal Bloating/Excessive Gas
Digestive Problems
Lower back pain - that I awake with and seems to be worse during my cycle.
Weight Gain - I have gained approx 40 lbs in the last (3) yrs..
Excessive hair growth

* I am extremely fatigued all the time*

I would appreciate any feedback from anyone that has had or is experiencing these problems.
Thanks!
