I have my lap in two weeks to check for suspected endometriosis. I have had symptoms since I was younger of having painful periods, however the past year I have had severe pains most days of the month with probably a week break. The symptoms I have had are, bloating, constipation, lower pelvic pain, abdominal pain, painful periods, occasional spotting inbetween periods etc.
At the moment though my pain has decreased, and only really have severe pains now during my period. I do have a twinge/stabbing/pinching pain (sorry I dont know how to describe it) in my lower right pelvic area most days, but that pain goes after a couple of seconds. I also get this same pain when I twist a certain way, cough or sneeze etc, I do get bloated most days still, and still suffer with constipation, but im not in constant agony.
Basically I am just wondering if this normal? Can I have such severe pain, and then it just decrease? Dont get me wrong, I'm happy that I dont have to carry a heat pad round with me all the time, but I'm
A) anxious that its going to come back
B) anxious about the lap, and really wanted to find answers.
If someone could shed some light on this I would be really grateful.
