I've been dealing with severe abdominal and pelvic pain since my early teens. I'm 21 now. The first time the pain happened, the hospital found ovarian cysts. But I haven't had any more after that. The pain is so bad, I have to lay in a fetal position with a pillow between my legs. I can barely walk or stand up straight. Sometimes I can't make it to the bathroom without almost passing out.
I also get fatigue, chills, I shake, nausea (threw up 3 times the other day), back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, dizzy spells, constipation, pain when moving bowels and peeing, my vagina and anus hurts sometimes. I've almost fainted many times. I fell over a chair because I couldn't stand anymore. Ive had so many hospital visits, I can't count.
I've also had rib pain since I was 12 and when breathing in. Was always diagnosed with Pleurisy but it always came back.
I do want to mention that I have Lyme disease.
My periods can be heavy and get a lot of clots. The pain and symptoms come whenever it wants. Before, during and after period.
It's gotten worse over the years. I ruled so many things out. I had an endoscopy and I have GERD and hiatal hernia. But it doesn't explain what I go through. I had a colonoscopy and it was normal. Blood work is normal, as well as CT scans, X rays, MRI, Ultrasound. It's not my appendix or gall bladder. I am getting a Laparoscopy soon! I'm so happy but I'm so afraid I won't get the answer even though I believe it's Endo but I don't want anyone thinking I'm crazy. I'm so scared what do you ladies think? I don't know what I will do if nothing is found. I'm so depressed and the pain and everything is so bad that I feel like doing something drastic.
Thank you so much for reading and answering.
