My Story

Hello everyone! 

Thought I would share my story as it seems to be very different to everyone else. 

When I was 16 I was involved in a bus accident. For years and years I have suffered with a bad back and neck (I need to see a chiropractor every 4 weeks) which has really hindered my life. 

Things changed nearly 4 years ago when my lower back pain got worse. This spread through my hips and pelvic area, along side many other debilitating symptoms . Countless trips to the doctors, hundreds of £ spent of pain medication, scans, blood tests... You name it, I had it. I was finally referred to hospital and following a laparoscopy I was diagnosed with endometriosis.

I am about 1 month post op now and finally feeling human again. Follow up appointment on June 9th for full results.

I saw Cloudy with a Chance of Pain on BBC Breakfast and decided it was a good way for me to track my pain. 

I don't believe my endometriosis pain is effected by the weather, but my neck and back pain 100% feels worse when it's cold and wet/damp outside. 

Bring on a dry warm summer!
