Hi, I am in so much desperation I'm trying these forums to see if you can give me more help than the doctors!
I've had lower abdominal problems from the age of 15 all starting with recurring water infections with a year of being on different anti biotics which my body is now immune too I finally got a diagnosis of painful bladder syndrome (symptons of an infection but no infections) I've had my bladder stretched twice since then and symptoms have calmed down but I believe it is because I know what can cause a flare up and learn to control it. At the same time I suffered with the worst pain I can describe in my right ovary after numerous scans and trips to the hospital I was told I had a burst cyst. I am now 21 and for the past 6 years I have dealt with severe pain in my womb, bladder, lower back and ovaries in day to day life. Sexual intercourse is extremely painful and feels like my womb is being ripped out of me with intense pain in my right ovary. I've been back and fourth to the doctors with numerous scans and they revealed my right ovary is 3 times the size of my left and both are covered in follicles. Last Christmas I finally got to see a specialist after a family friend suggested I could have endometriosis. I had a laproscopy in march to which my surprise the consultant said there was no endometriosis and my womb and ovaries both look healthy. It is now July and I'm lying in bed again off work due to the fact I can't walk from the pain! They are like extreme period pains but I've still not had a period this month. Please tell me I'm not the only one like this? I feel stupid going back to the doctors!! Thank you and sorry for the essay! Xx
