Severe pain during period

Hello Doctor! I am 21 yrs old. I am suffering from severe unbearable stomach pain during my periods. I experience this pain only on the first day. I can't sit, stand, sleep or do any work. To relieve this unbearable pain, every month on the first day of my periods I take Meftal Spas. I am scared if I get addicted to pain killers. Kindly suggest me some solution so that I get rid of this pain for the lifetime or taking Meftal Spas is fine?! Thank you.

Hi...., Place a heating pad or hot water bottle on your lower back or abdomen. Taking a warm bath may also provide some relief. To relieve menstrual cramps, Rest when needed....Avoid foods that contain caffeine and salt.... Women who exercise regularly often have less menstrual pain. To help prevent cramps, make exercise a part of your weekly routine...Consider low fat diet, increase omega fatty acids...
