Some women get really painful cramps when they get their period. And, NO they have not gone mad. I remember reading that in days gone by (and they can stay days gone by) women who had menstrual cramps were considered deranged. Fortunately, today we know that isn't so and there are ways to manage cramps without being interred in an insane asylum.
There is a discussion that I posted on WebMD that provides home remedies that can help minimize the discomfort. Of course, like anything that may go beyond the usual in regards to your health, please contact your health care provider if your cramps are really concerning.
Take a read and let me know what you think or have suggestions for others.
