    Am sorry about the pain. Sugar intake can only make the pain worse but doesn't cause it. Some people tend to have severe menstrual pain though it can be due to an underlying cause like uterine disorders. You should avoid food that make you nauseous and eat in little portions during your menstrual phase. Apply a warm towel over your abdomen. Take a pain reliever. Try and keep fit by exercising regularly and avoid adding weight. If all these dont make you feel better you should see a gynaecologist.
