-Long lasting periods (running into the other cycle)
-Standing or walking for more than 5minutes causes more bleeding & pain
-Severe abdominal pain
-Severe Lower back pain
-Obesity (since i've been on the pill, i've gained a LOT of weight)
-Loss of appetite
-Anxiety and High Blood pressure (i was told that was from birth control pills)
-Insomnia (as of the past 3 months)
-Bacteria in my bladder (no sort of antibiotics help, it doesn't feel like a normal bladder infection either, everytime I empty my bladder, it feels like it's being crushed, a ton of pressure on my bladder) and yes, i've had bladder infections before, totally different feeling. My streams don't hurt, it's after emptying my bladder that hurts.
-IBS (if that's even true, from the colonoscopy, they diagnosed me with IBS because everything seemed clear.
If you've taken the time to read this I really appreciate it. I feel stuck, after all these pokes and prods, ultrasounds, feeling like a lab rat :-( , i don't know what to do. They can't find anything wrong, they want to put a IUD thing inside my uterus but i'm not sure that will help, I was told it costs around $600.00 to do and because I have no job, money lacks. If there's any information that anyone has, please help. Thank you very much, I appreciate it. :-)
I went to my doctor yesterday, telling him how long i've been on my period. He's worried that i'll bleed to death without knowing it. ER's wont pay any attention, as long as you're not dieing right then and there, they send ya home. I don't know if there's anything good I can say here, no hopeful things to say. I wish no one had to go through this, it's so painful to know that there's more women out there who suffer from this c**p and don't have insurance to help or the money. I'm giving up on these forums. More questions than answers / opinions; just like a doctor's office. All I can say is good luck, thanks for reading if you have taken the time to and i hope you all get some answers, it's not fair to have this kind of pain all the time, everyday at such a young age. %-)
Thank you for posting this. I am 28 years old. I have never been sexually active or given birth but I have the SAME EXACT symptoms and duration of cycles that you do original poster. I too have had every test known to man and everything has come back as being normal. I am sitting in my bed doubled over from intense labor type pain and crying with frustration. My Gym does not know what to tell me and my primary is baffled too.
Did you ever find out the cause? If so please let me know.
I hope that you are doing better.
Thank you for any help that you can provide.
I have had a very similar story to yours and then some...i am now trying acupuncture and so far the bleeding has stopped! Like a miracle really! I did not find any more medicine or surgery to be an option for me! Talk to a master acupuncturist! I'm so glad i did! I also have a chiropractor for support as a simple misalignment in your spine can lead to problems as well. Everything innervates from the spine! Hope you find some answers very soon and some relief! I feel like i have just done the smartest thing ever! 9 surgeries later!
