Had off and on stomach and back cramps and occasional hot flashes. Taking Advil. Treatment?


For the last six days, I've had off and on stomach and back cramps and occasional hot flashes. The cramps lasts upwards of four hours at a time. Advil is providing little relief. I'm not on my period, but it's coming next week. But what's strange is that I hardly ever cramp when I'm on my period, so I'm not sure what's going on with my body.

Hello ma'am.

An important aspect of your query that was missing is your age. Hot flashes can occur in association with many differrnt conditions, but one of the most common one is menopause.

If you are around the age of menopause, then you should visit your doctor for further advise. But if not, then your symptoms could be associated with a hormonal imbalance, infections, conditions of the inner lining of the uterus, etc.

So please visit your doctor as an online consultation will noy suffice in helping you much at the moment.

Hope this suffices.

Take care.
