At the moment I feel like I'm banging my head against the wall and not getting anywhere. Let me tell you about my story - I was diagnosed 5 months ago in july with endometriosis after having excruciating pain for over 3 years. Now I have finally won the battle of being diagnosed, I'm having to fight again to try and figure out what can manage my pain. My consultant fitted a mirena coil after he found the endo, and nothing have improved I still get pain on a daily basis, and I take pain relief that cancer patients do. I had pain-block injections about 2 months ago, which also didn't help. I take a large amount of medication daily, and I just don't know what to do the pain is still unbearable. I'm 22 years of age, and I feel like an 80 year old woman. I take antidepressants in the morning, morphine sulphate tablets, amitriptiline, oramorph, cocadomal, and anti-inflammatries. My life is ruled by my endo, and I feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. I have tried everything, I'm currently having counselling but obviously that's not doing much for my pain. If you name it, I've tried it. I just don't want to live the rest of my life surviving on painkillers to be able to take the edge off my horrific symptoms, but I don't know what to do.
Please can someone advise or recommend something I can do to make the pain ease. Also, who can I see to remove my coil? I don't see the point in it being there if it's not helping my symptoms.
Thank you & sorry for the long post lol
Lots of love
