Green Tea = Secret Cure for Bad Cramps?

I get absolutely terrible cramps on the first day of my period. I'm talking horrible, can't function, stay home from work cramps. It's been happening for years and there's nothing I could do about it, no matter how much heat I applied and how many meds I took. UNTIL.... I just recently read an article about how green tea is supposed to help relieve muscle spasms and reduce the severity of menstral cramps. So this morning, I got out of the fetal position, and ran to Panera to buy the largest cup of iced green tea that they had, and I'm not kidding, my cramps started going away. IT'S A GD MIRACLE. Shortly after lunch my cramps started coming back, so I ran to the gas station to buy some more green tea. BOOM. Cramps were gone. I don't know if it works for everyone, but shockingly it worked for me so I thought I'd share. Let me know if it works for you!
