Get a strong herbal chamomile tea. It specifically soothes upset stomachs. and do some situps. any exercise that makes your abdominal muscles contract really helps stop the pain.

Literally no pain relievers work for me...not even coedine that people use to get high. Heat is the best option for me and i've tried everything from herbs to pickle juice and working out. What I found works best is meditation along with heating pads that you stick on your body, but Aspercreme is amazing...it's a warming sensation that lasts for hours and kills cramps in less than a hour. Maca has also made my period lighter and shorter. I've went from very severe to dull moderate cramps. I also went from using super absorbent to light tampons...sorry if its tmi. My period has also went from 7 days to 4 days.

Here are some tips that may help for you
 
1. Red Raspberry leaf tea - tones the uterus
2. Rub plain alcohol (the drinking 100 proof type) on the lower stomach over the crampy area.
3. Take calcium and Magneesium supplements starting the week before your period
4. Work out 2 times daily
5. stop using tampons - I only started cramping after my baby was born and I found that using tampons actually made it worst for me. I switched to pads and like magic - no cramping
6. Reduce salt intake a week before your period. Some reputable studies have shown that doing this reduces cramping and bloating
7. Eat lots of leafy greens all the time - spinach, cabbage and parsley usually raw or barely steamed. They reduce cramping and bloating. One way for me to get them is in my daily juice/shakes. Carrots, spinach, watercress and what ever fruit is in season - makes an awesome drink.
8. Garlic - this is the bomb! If you can stomach it a clove of fresh garlic daily with a spoon of honey.
9. the ultimate - better than anything else - forget codine, etc 1 oz nutmeg with 1 pint of Jamaican over proof rum - take ONLY 1 teaspoon 3 times daily.

Before I gave up red meat, vicaden (sp?) was the only thing that helped. Thank god I found another way, it was very dangerous but the only thing that worked.
 
If you take a pain pill like aleve, advil, whatever, caffiene will make it work faster. Don't out too much milk in it though.

working out or any type of exercise will take your mind off the cramps and help your body circulate properly, try it

Is it possible that you have fibroids?

Evening primrose oil is really good...and yes, a change in your diet will definitely help. Try cutting out dairy

I wholeheartedly agree with the above (tampons, greens, & garlic) especially if you have endometriosis.  Garlic, oranges, broccoli actually lower estrogen in your body and cruciferous vegetables are low estrogen foods.  Too much estrogen will inflame uterine tissue (which may be deposited in other areas as well if you have endo) and cause pain.  PP's mentioned meat, dairy, sugar, and wheat (everything, I know!), which will cause inflammation of the uterine tissue. If you can only eliminate one thing-do away with sugar.  It is one of the biggest triggers of cramps (see book, Sugar Blues)
