I'm still in the process of being diagnosed with Endo, but the pain is so unbearable at times it calls for 999 as I literally cannot bare it, and I'm pretty thick skinned when it comes to my gynae pain!!
So a few weeks ago (23rd April) I was taken into hospital by ambulance due to uncontrollable pain. This time however gas and air did absolutely nothing to relieve the pain, it just made my head feel very muzzy, so they gave me morphine to finally bring me relief.
This time the pain was worse, it lasted longer (nearly an hour this time) and I needed stronger pain relief. To be honest, my first ambulance journey gave me gas and air which did nothing, but no morphine, the second the gas and air worked a treat, and gave me strong light headedness, and the most recent time the gas and air was like the first trip, didn't make me feel anything and did nothing to the pain.
Firstly I'm wondering if all ambulances actually carry full gas bottles, as twice now it seemed like I was sucking little to nothing at all.
Secondly, I'd like to know whether anyone thinks my condition (be it endo or otherwise) could be getting worse, or that the pain just reaches scales at different times? It just seems to be getting increasingly more regular that I'm in pain, and it wasn't even quite 2 months since my last hospital visit.
After all this I've been prescribed 60 mg codeine and 1000mg paracetamol to replace my usual of co-dydramol which was much lower and had pretty much stopped working. So basically, I'm waiting for my consultation in June, 6 months to the day since my last, and am fed up with being drugged up to my eyeballs just to get through the day, but a going to push for a laparoscopy and not take no for an answer this time!!!
Thanks for any help,
