Abnormally heavy period?

i've had heavy periods before, but this one seems abnormally heavy...I woke up this morning, and when I got out of bed, it started streaming out everywhere, i ran to the bathroom and it wouldnt stop, for about 3-5 min. I was bleeding through super tampons all day in about an hour, and have miserable cramps. Is this normal? am i losing too much blood? Could there be a cause for this?

    Unbelievably, we only bleed a couple of tablespoons when we are on our period. I wouldn't worry about it. Sit in a hot shower for a few minutes, let the water run over your stomach. It helps me on my heavy months.
