I just don't understand!?
I have been on the pill for 4 months now - did my 3 months back to back (breakthrough bleeding for 2 months solid) then had a period which was really not as bad as I thought it might be but still pretty sore.
Come to next round of pill and I still have 7 days to go and I got my period 4 days ago FULL ON (still taking pill) - heaviest I have ever had (bearing in mind mine are not normally heavy) and full of clots. Pain not so bad in the first few days, nothing a few panadol didn't dull.
BUT today! now that is a different story, killer pain in right side and hip and aching all the way to my knee and sometimes ankle... why... why does it make my knee and hip hurt? For a long time before Endo was tossed out there as a possibility I though I had arthritis! It aches so bad and nothing touches the pain, Tramadol, codeine,... nothing.
Is this really Endo related?? I just find it so odd that cramps can turn into hip and knee pain. Does this affect anyone else? What do you do?
I am back at the GYN in 2 days for assessment after doing the pill thing for 4 months - still not formally diagnosed - am hoping for Lap referral. I did think that the pill may have been all I needed as it has taken most of the pain away.... until today grrrrrrrr
Hope everyone is having good pain free days xxxx
