I got diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis 2 years ago after a laparoscopy, since then have been very up and down with symptoms. However this week have reached all time worst period ever- passed out at work from the pain and had to be driven home. I know I had a cyst last month as had to stop the beginning of my IVF cycle due to the size of the cyst. Have been completely wiped out since the weekend, and never been through so many always 8 hr night time pads!! The pain has been horrendous. My GP has put me on mefemic acid and Zappain to help control the symptoms. I have a scan next week to see if cyst has burst or what it is doing. Today have slept and feel so tired and fed up, as a teacher I hate having time off work at such a busy time of year and just feel lousy - flow is slowing, but hip, back and leg pain is not great, seem to have developed upset stomach today and just want to sleep and feel very lather fix. Any hints and tips for dealing with fatigue or recovering from rough monthly would be greatly appreciated- have been drinking lots of water and tried to eat little an often as had no real appetite and hot water bottle is definitely my current best friend! Fingers crossed scan shows good news and next month is brighter! Apologise for the moan- just needed to get it all out! X
