I'm 26 years old and have been married for over 2 1/2 years. I've been having pelvic pain for over 2 months now. My first experience was around my ovulation time and at 2am I thought I was in labour. Considering I've never had a child I got a few "really?" looks from the doctors. But that's the only way I could describe it. Severe pelvic and back pain with an overwhelming urge to urinate (nothing) unable to lie down, stand straight, ending up in a half crooked position digging my nails in to my beds head board and actually doing breathing techniques to help me not to pass out.
Since then its been a battle with various pain and other symptoms. My doctors have tested me for everything and ruled out everything except Endo. I'm now waiting for a referral to see a gynaecologist specialist.
Both my docs believe it is Endo and there is a family history of it through my dads mum and sister. I can cope with the pain to a degree but its the lack of sleep that is sending me over the edge. Most nights I wake up 1am, 2am, tonight it was 11.45 and 3am. Its affecting my work and my sanity! How do you sleep?
I've started having pain while being intimate (I've never felt pain like it! It was excruciating!) now I get pain every time my bowel or bladder is full. With being Type 2 diabetic I used to wake once in the night and then go to sleep. But now it triggers pelvic pain which wakes me up. I urinate I feel a pain relief but not completely and then cant get back to sleep for a few hours. A 3am wake up call with a couple hours of settling back to sleep knowing I have to be up at 5.30am to get to work actually makes me cry. I cry more knowing I'll be here around the same time tomorrow.
