Hi I was just wandering if stomach cramps are the norm? I get severe cramps lasting around 3 minutes at a time that literally take my breath away about 4 times a week! I have cold sweats after them too! I know I'm going through the menopause which I'm taking HRT for! but these cramps are the only problem I have recently and I'm planning on taking the kids away for a fortnight and don't want them seeing me in pain. also as I'm having a 3 month break through treatment do I have to ask permission to go abroad off the oncologist?
