Hi! Felt the need for a bit of a rant today. I was finally diagnosed after a laposcrapy a couple of months ago after a long exhausting battle with doctors and consultants, paying for private scans and having to be really pushy to get an op. I have suffered from depression from the age of 13 and ibs since 19 so have been highly medicated and with the provera am now taking 12 meds a day not including co-codomol/painkillers! After the diagnosis I started on three 10mg of provera a day and began a gluten free diet to ease the ibs as the two conditions irritate each other. Up until two days ago I was doing well but then the pelvic pain began again and since yesterday I am back to being swollen to the point of looking about 8 months pregnant, really painful stomach, pelvic pain, back pain, rectal pain, tiredness, lots of creamy discharge which makes me feel dirty even though I am very hygienic and leg pain. I am so upset as I spent months only being able to wear stretchy clothes and being in constant pain and popping painkillers. I was finally starting to feel human again and to have a normal life back with a flats tummy and now I am back to looking and feeling like a total mess work was so hard again today and even though it was boiling hot I had a hot water bottle permanently attached to me and was so uncomfortable and grumpy! Has anyone else had temporary relief with these pills only to relapse? Does anyone have any tips to cope with any of my symptoms? I feel overwhelmed and lost right now x x x
