To cut a long story short- I was previously one of the lucky ones who only experienced pain during period and maybe the week before. I hadn't found anyway of dulling the pain but could grit my teeth and get through it knowing it wouldn't last long. However since my last lap I have been experiencing the pain I associate with my periods everyday despite not bleeding. It has stepped up a notch and seems to have changed position slightly but it's def the same type of pain. Not only has this affected my work as rather than take a couple of days off every month I've been off for weeks, I'm scared that I'm not going t be able to make it to my upcoming exams. I think I'm also finding it hard to cope as it seems like there's no end in sight it's just day after day of pain. I really can't find the words to describe the pain but its absolutely crippling and prevents me from doing even the smallest things like standing to have a shower. I have tried mefanamic acid, cocodamol, voltarol tablets and suppositories and I'm now on tramadol. None of these seem to touch the pain they just make me sick and dizzy. Is there anything out there that can get rid of this pain and help me to lead a normal life?! I am about to start the endo diet in an attempt to calm thngs but not sure how much this can actually help in terms of pain. for context i am 23, have widespread endo, cysts and uterine fibroids. due to start hormone treatment in the next month or two. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!( sorry that wasn't short in the end!)
