Hi there, story so far, I've had pains for 7 years now, low right hand side of my stomach, been in and out of hospital with it, waiting for laperoscopy, have pre op on Friday so hopefully will find out then when it will be! Gyne doctor doing the laperoscopy with suspected endo. Pains come and go, pains seem to come either few days before my period would be due or few days after (I'm on microgynon back to back) pain can last for just a few days up to 3 weeks, feels like sharp stabbing pains, I'm usually doubled up in pain and when it's so bad I end up in hospital needing morphine for pain relief! But then I wud get a few weeks up to 8 weeks of realief where pain just felt like a dull ache, I could work, socialise, everything as normal, however since about October last year I feel like I'm in so much pain every day, waking up through the night in pain, need to take painkillers everyday, where as I would usually only take painkillers when the pain was really bad, I take oxycodone and nefopam. Also since October i feel tired and exhausted everyday, but not through lack of sleep, it's like my body is so heavy and I have to force myself to do things and my body is willing me to go back to bed, I get terrible pains down my back and tops of my legs, I've started getting headaches when the pains are bad, I have the runs everyday even thou I'm on painkillers which used to make me constipated (sorry too much info), can this all be with endometriosis? Or is it all in my head? Or something else? I'm just desperate now to be free of pain, to have a break from the pain, the last few months it's just totally taken over my life, I have no social life, no sex with my partner as it hurts so much which is affecting our relationship! I find it such a struggle everyday, I'm only 23 and I have a 9 month old baby, I need to be well for her, I'm struggling at the minute and I love her so much I want to be there for her 24/7 and be able to take her out and do things with her! I just feel like giving up! Sorry about going on just don't no where else to turn!
