So I've been having severe pains and my doctors seem to be no help they've given a lack of advise and have just advised me to take pain killers to ease the pain but the pain has gotten so severe that the pain killers don't work. I haven't been diagnosed with endo but my auntie suggested I should ask to be treated for it. However when I brought it up my gp didn't seem to understand and dismissed it.
My symptom are:
Severe periods very heavy
Cramps up rectum and vagina
Stabbing pains throughout my pelvic it's either a constant dull pain it would come randomly but very severe and sharp like someone is stabbing me
I can't sleep at nights
Lower back pain that doesn't seem to go
Always tired because of the pain
Gp says I have polycystic ovaries.
However I know endo also causes cysts on ovaries I want to be referred to a specialist but he won't allow it.
I've also called up 111 and they didn't know what endo was
The pain got so bad I threw up and passed out. Couldn't breathe and was weasing. I've always had chronic period pains but it seems that this pain is worse when ovulating.
The pain is too much and have had little to no support from my Gp I've told him the pain is affecting my every day life. He wasn't going to give me any pain killers until I told him I need some sort of pain relief.
He doesn't listen to my symptoms when I told him I passed out the only information I got was 'you passed out cos of the pain' which is obvious. If I knew I'd get that response I wouldn't have told him I was hoping he'd realise it isn't normal and run more test.
I feel like I've had little to no support and I don't want to rely on painkillers without knowing what's really wrong.
Can someone enlighten me with their symptoms if they're similar to mine that have endo or have these symptoms because I don't know what to do. Please help?
