I know pain is all relative to whoever is experiencing it.
But could someone give me an idea of what it feels like to them please or how it has been explained to them by others. By no means am I asking for medical advice as I have already sought it, but just wanted to have others insight please.
I was Dx with IBS a while ago, and the pain I feel I always associate with that, However after a trip to the GP this morning, it appears one of the blood test I had recently Ca 125, was quite raised. Not raised enough for him to be worried it was something nasty but enough to suggest it may be something like Endometriosis, after fair bit of questioning and explaining about heavy periods/lots of flooding/pain etc, I am now being referred to Gynae.
The pain I get, and its not every month, but when I do get it its quite dibilitating, I just feel like all my insides are inflammed and are about to spill out of my flue, I have a fair bit of bloating and lower abdomen/uterine area is very tender to touch. Every time I walk and take a step it feels like it is ricocheting up my body and aims right for the pelvic area, even my hips and lower back are affected. It hurts to fart, sit on the loo for a wee, and i need to brace myself for a poo. This can last a few days, not much more and usually after a period.
