Although many of us are in high spirits about the long weekend ahead, Amanda Black is bedridden due to intense period pains, and her fans are trying to help her find a solution

Period pains are the bane of many a woman’s existence, and when songbird Amanda Black took to social media to complain about her debilitating cramps, her fans could relate.

She revealed that her pain was so uncomfortable that she couldn’t even walk or get out of bed.

In an Instagram Live video, the singer said, “It is times like this that I am over being a girl. So, if anyone has advice for me on my nausea… The cramps aren’t so bad but the nausea feels like my stomach is turning.”

As well as this, she gained deep sympathy with her caption on Instagram, in which she confessed that she has suffered from period cramps all her life, and the pain is as bad as it’s ever been, “think were allowed to complain. In fact yes. We are allowed. Somehow never get used to this feeling. It’s been years but it’s always a surprise how horrible it is (sic)”
