I'm new here and was just wondering whether anyone could help me.
I'm 23 and last year was diagnosed with endometriosis, I had an operation where all traces were removed and I thought I had been fixed and was enjoying being pain free. 6 months later the pain returned and, my consultant at the time, put me on 30mg Provera tablets daily. During this time I was a university student training to become a children's nurse. The Provera didn't help the pain and my consultant wasn't being particularly helpful, and as it was affecting my future career I did some research and found an endometriosis specialist and arranged an appointment. This consultant was the first consultant who I actually felt was concerned about the chronic pain I was in and wanted to help me fix the problem to enable me to continue with my nursing training. He carried out a diagnostic laparoscopy and unfortunately discovered that I have in fact chronic inflammation and no endometriosis, he also doesn't believe I ever did have endometriosis. As there is no cure for the chronic inflammation I have had to quit my nurses training as I struggle to get through the day with the amount of pain I am in. I am on Tramadol, Naproxen, Paracetamol and Amitriptyline to try and help the pain, which it does to some extent, but I am still suffering greatly on a daily basis. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or been diagnosed, and can possible give me some good news on progress you've made! I've found some herbal remedies that are meant to be amazing for inflammation which I have been taking, which are Turmeric capsules and Serrapeptese tablets. I'm taking so many things that I won't know what has fixed me but at the moment I just want to be fixed so will quite happily to anything to make me feel better! If any of you can help me I'd love you forever! I'm getting so down as all my friends have graduated and are getting on with their lives and I am just sat at home watching daytime T.V!
Sorry for rambling on.
