Can menopause symptoms mimic period symptoms?

Patient: I am having abdominal cramps and lower back pain as if I were having my period. But I am 51 years old and haven’t had a period in over 2 years. Is it normal to still have period symptoms during menopause? This is not the first time but it is the worst and the longest at almost a week.

Symptoms: Abdominal cramps and lwe back pain
