I really need an explanation for this and I feel like maybe someone else has experienced it. I have been diagnosed with endometriosis in the past and I also had surgery to remove ovarian adhesions, that was 3 years ago. This past year things have been somewhat good for me, no bad flare ups and periods have been ok. For the past 2 months my periods have been excruciatingly painful, like worse than I can ever remember and I even passed out once because of the pain so my gp sent me for a scan which is this Thursday. This month my period was almost a week late, and really painful, with nausea and dizziness. Now for the past 3 days I have noticed a weird pain in my pelvis, feels like it is bruised all over, especially when I cough, laugh or bend. It is also quite swollen and when I tried to press down on it to pinpoint the pain I noticed that one point in my left side is extremely painful to the touch, like if I press gently I'll flinch. Has anyone experienced this? I don't want to go to my gp as my scan is on Thursday and I know the doctor will just tell me to wait for the result, any help would be much appreciated as I am getting worried as each day goes by. Also does anyone know how to treat the pain? I'm taking pain killers but hot water bottle is out of the question as I had a bad experience with it (2nd degree burns). Also I left my heat pad back at my family's house when I moved out.
Thank you so much xxxx
