I have been back and forth to docs and hospital and i keep being fobbed off with IBS. Im in pain and its wearing me down.
Started back in Feb (10th) a week before i was due with back ache, then severe cramps not just in pelvic area but down the sides of my abdomen. Started a very heavy and extremely painful period and i thought they would go. They didnt pain then kept up on and off with various other symptoms, up to the point where they thought i had appendicitis after 2 treatments of antibi's for suspected UTI's.
No appendicitis, ultra sound done and small 'normal' cyst on the left, a tilted back womb and thick Endometrium (even though i finished my period the week before). Pains and cramps eventually ceased 4 weeks later, for a total of 3 and a bit days, then came back. Once again starting with back ache, a week later i started another heavy painful period.
Eventually had Gyny appt but with the registrar who asked me about my symptoms and immidiately said i had IBS and referred me back to my docs. Despite the fact the ultra sound said i had thick endo after i finished my period, my periods are irregular even though im taking the pill (31, 29, 41, 37 days), my periods make me double over in pain, they are heavy for 3 days then then next 2 or 3 i shed old blood. Im now 26 and they never used to be heavy or painful and were regular, when i was 19 they turned like this.
Pain ceased again on 24/03/13 for 5 days and started again with back ache. In addition to this round of pain, im now getting a sharp shooting pain up my lady bits at the same time as sharp period like pains which extend down the front of my thighs and i get shap pains on the inside of my ankles. Im sick of being fobbed off and made to look like a hypocondriact. Ive taken buscopan, aloe vera juice, peppermint oil, codeine, paracetamol, ibru and although i get slight relief from pain it doesnt go.
Im very fed up and has anyone else experienced anything like it?
