I'm worried about this problem I have...

So, I have had previous experience with bad cramps and upset stomach during my period. But lately, I take pain killers and drink ginger tea and all that stuff and It makes me feel better. But recently, I have had really bad cramps on waking up, and I don't like the thought of taking pain killers cuz then they might not work as well when I'm actually on my period. THIS IS NOT MY PERIOD. I have no bleeding whatsoever. The cramps dont feel the same, and otherwise, my cycle is going like normal. Could this be endometriosis, cuz my mom said she had it and my grandmother possibly had it, but I wouldn't think it's hereditary? At the same time, this is not the first time I've felt this. I'm worried that it may be getting worse with age and if it is in fact treatable, i want to treat it. But I don't really want to go to my Doctor. Don't get me wrong, he's a terrific doctor, but this is a female thing. I already told my mom, she said wade it out, if it gets worse She'll take me.
