Suspected kidney stone... actually endo

So... I spent the night in A&E yesteday with suspected kidney stones. I've had them before - a decade ago I had the biggest kidney stone Guy's Hospital in London had ever seen - so was amazed and heartbroken when a CT scan revealed that although I had stones, they were small and endo was the reason behind my crippling pain.

Can't believe another part of my body has been affected by this condition. Just about on the verge of giving up, to be honest. Today has been an endless round of changing tampons and taking drugs. Really don't know how to cope anymore. Even morphine, via a drip in the hospital, didn't take away the pain...

  • Kidney stones make you feel as though your back is broken. Then your side is agony to touch and the pain radiates down to your abdomen.

    Then there's blood in your urine... when I had my really bad one, my urine was the colour of ribena!

    If you've got severe backache, go to your GP and get it checked out.

    My ovaries are always painful nowadays, but its a very seperate pain from kidney stones.

    Lots of luck x
