This Friday my period started early in the morning... then around 9:30 while I was in school, I started feeling pain in my abdominal/pelvic region. It wasn't too bad at first but gradually became worse and worse. I have never had cramps on my period, but I figured there was a first time for everything! Then it got even worse, and I started feeling faint. My head ached terribly. Within a few minutes, my vision started to blur and I thought I would pass out. I excused myself from class and barely made it to the nurse without collapsing! The pain was so bad I couldn't think straight. I was hysterical and made a complete fool of myself. The nurse told me that my blood pressure was very low. I went to a clinic to see a doctor, who took some blood and a urine sample. Within 30 minutes, the pain had gone and I felt completely fine again. The doctor said that the test results were all completely normal and indicated no problem. She had me go in later that day for an ultrasound. I am still awaiting the doctor's verdict, but the technician said that everything looked fine! I am 17 by the way. My period only started 1 1/2 years ago. Since the brief episode on Friday, nothing else has happened. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
