7 months ago I started having severe lower abdominal pain and lower back pain with my periods. I went to the gyno and at first he put me on pain pills and said i was just having a painful period, but if i was still having problems to call back. I was so i ended up getting an ultrasound. When i went in for my follow up he told me the technician thought i was pregnant but he thought it was just a fibroid. We continued to talk about my pain and decided on getting a D&C, hystocopy, and laporoscopy. Everything came back normal but I continued to have pain. Problem is I get pain the week before my period, the week of, and the week after, so I may get 1 week of relief. In the meantime my gyno retires. I find a new one at a well respected office and go see him for my annual and to talk to him about what is going on. Well the office did not have my records from my old office so the appointment didn't very well. He told me they would call me and let me know what he thinks after he got my records. He decided to put me on a hormones to see if that would help. I started taking them in October and didn't have a period until December. I had maybe a few days intermittently of pain but overall was good, and no back pain. Then in the beginning of December I started spotting and had severe back pain and pelvic pain. I called and let them know and they said that could be normal and tontake ibuprofen and tylenol, neither of which helped. I ended spotting then bleeding then spotting again for 21 days. My gyno the suggested an endometrial ablation. At this point I don't care I just want to be out of pain. I had the ablation last week. The first night was awful but the second night I was pretty much back to baseline with the pelvic pain and back pain. I only spotted for 2 days and nothing ever since, which I am a week out. I Called the gyno today and let them know what is going on and they said I shouldn't be in pain still and I need to see a back specialist. I have not had back issues until all this started. I am 38 with 2 children by c-section and yes I am overweight. I will gonto my family doctor and suggest an MRI, but I really don't think that's what it is. I'm tired, in pain, frustrated, I feel like nobody is taking me seriously now, including my husband, and depressed. Any advice?......
