I had really bad cramps four days before my period. I was a day late, and it was lighter and shorter than usual. Now I have a lot of back pain, nausea, headaches, mood swings, some cramps, and dizziness, and I feel as if I have a high temperature every time I wake up. Could I be pregnant?


Yes, these symptoms can be indicative of pregnancy. The first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. If it comes back negative, you'll want to call your doctor and let them know what's going on. These symptoms can also be as a result of a treatable thyroid condition.
