Hi, I am at the end of my tether and I feel like I'm the only one in the world suffering the way I am, no one seems to listen! Last night I told my boyfriend I wish he could just feel the pain I'm in so he could understand! I've had all the tests they're willing to give me - my laparoscopy turned up fine :-s my blood tests show my hormones a bit irregular and the ultrasounds I've had in the past 4 years have always showed my ovaries are larger than each other and suspected follicles over them, I know this sounds like PCOS but I'm sure it's more than that. At my last doctors appointment she said to me it's basically all in my head and I think there's something wrong when there isn't and I'm just over sensitive to pain, she said thus infront of my mum who had to come with me because she was so fed up of seeing me in the pain I get!
My periods are never on time and the 2 weeks I get leading up to it are horrendous my belly is so bloated, I suffer terribly with loose bowels I have period cramps and leg cramps this month I was limping round work the cramp was so bad! Without fail the day before I start my period I will get a migraine and have to stay in a very dark room. When I do come on my period the pain is so constant it's not like cramps that go on and off it's an intense pain that only a hot water bottle will soothe a little every month I'm having a day off work at least and it's bit embarrassing when it's your period (every woman in the world has them right!). I feel the pain mostly in my right ovary and also I can't remember the last time I didn't have to tell my boyfriend to be careful during sex because the right side of my lower pelvis hurts so bad during sex.
I'm exhausted by all of this now and get so down it seems to be ruining my life I always have to give up plans if my period falls at the same time and I know my job is in jeopardy!
I just want someone to understand and maybe put a name to it! I am 20 years old xx
