I used to have severe period pain until I went on the pill, was on it for 10 years then came off and got pregnant straight away. Since the birth of my son five years ago my abdominal symptoms have been getting worse but with no actual severe pain, I get a frequent burning feeling and feel like something is eating away at me. Because of the minimal period pain my Gp won't refer me even though I have a lot of the other symptoms as did my mother. Any ideas from you lovely ladies on here? Am fed up of feeling ill 3 out of 4 weeks each month.
