I have always suffered from excruciating period pain (From about 13 onwards). They tried me on various painkillers that didn't touch the pain, it got so bad that for a good 8 days a month i was heavily bleeding/vomiting/fainting and having fits. In the end they put me on the pill, this helped slightly but I was still in a lot of pain - the pattern seemed to be the pain would slightly ease for about 5 months then id have to switch pills as it would gradually start to get worse. I am now taking cerezette.
I woke up on Wednesday 23rd April in the middle of the night with excruciating lower abdo pain (I couldn't move - it wasn't a period, an ambulance was called and I was admitted to hospital. I had urine test, blood test, chest/abdominal X-rays, ultrasound (tummy/vaginal) and various abdominal examinations. They said I had a retroverted womb, a heart shaped uterus and strange shaped ovaries, the lady doing the examination mentioned that it could be endometriosis but doctors didn't confirm. My left ovary looked ok but the right wasn't visible. They thought it may be appendicitis so transferred me to another hospital. I had a temp and low blood sugar so they put me on a glucose drip. I had various bouts of sickness/morphine for the pain. On the Thursday I had vaginal blood when wiping after urinating but no spotting after that.
They diagnosed a ruptured ovarian cyst and discharged me with pain relief. The pain/sickness continued over the weekend (followed by diarreah) and gradually got worse by Tuesday/Wednesday so my mom called 111 for advise, they sent me to an all night gp who said it could be appendicitis so sent me to a&e, they gave me morphine via IV which eased the pain a lot and did blood tests/urine test/rectal exam/abdominal exam and they all came back ok, they said my abdo was very tender. They said it could be constipation and discharged me but couldn't see any cysts when going over my ultra sound scan (despite one ovary being hidden) (I didn't think it was constipation as the pain felt different).
When I got into the car I felt very sick/fainted, I was re admitted to hospital and put under observation. They discharged me Thursday morning with 'a gyno problem' and told me to go to my gp and ask for a referral to the gynaecologist at the hospital.
I had a doctor appointment a few hours later, I collapsed in the waiting area after feeling very dizzy with pain. The doctor did a abdominal exam/vaginal swabs/vaginal examination/urine test and they said my abdo felt tender and I was tender in left side of vagina. The urine test picked up a urine infection so they gave me anti biotics and sent me awAy (without referring me to gyno at hospital) - I finished the course of anti biotics Monday and they did take the dizzy feeling away but the pain remained. I went to the doctors today and they said all the swabs came back clear, they did another vaginal examination and an abdominal exam- they said my lower abdomen was tender and I was tender inside my vagina. They said it could be cysts or could be endometriosis so have referred me to hospital (Awaiting a call with my appointment)
Is this endometriosis - the pains been going on for so long now and no one is confirming anything for me? Help/advise would be so helpful
