Hello all, after coming off the pill 8 months ago (TTC for first time age 31) I immediately started with bad pains just on my left side, exactly where (I think!) my ovary is, but also sometimes right up to my diaphragm and sometimes on my back. The whole left side feels solid and heavy. Since coming off the pill I also get weird nausea spells in the night, weird twanging down legs and lower back when on period, total fatigue like I've never felt before, but the pain is the worst thing. I have never had unusual bowel movements like diarrohea or constipation other than short normal illnesses.
I am currently being sent between GP and gynaecologist whilst they do tests prior to a laparoscopy (ultrasound, ovulation, husband's semen, various other blood tests)... both are still weighing up whether it's more likely to be bowel/ IBS or endometriosis, and I'm trying Buscopan (for IBS) but not felt it stop the pain yet.
My question is: is it common or unusual for endometriosis pain to be entirely in one side of the body? I've never felt a thing on the right side. Does anybody else have experience of a one sided pain that ended up being diagnosed as either endo or bowel problems?
