Hope you are all well?
I've posted on the pelvic pain forum but thought it might be best to ask here as well.
Is it possible to have Endometriosis but not have severe period pains? I've been experiencing a constant dull ache in my pelvis and groin since March.
First they thought it was a UTI as I needed to urinate more than usual (but that's gone now) although all my bloods/urine came back normal however with a slightly raised white blood cell count.
Then a week later as the pelvic pain got worse, I went to see the out of hours Dr who thought it may be Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, and I was on a 2 week course of antibiotics.
As this didn't take away the pain, I went back to my GP who did some swabs. They all came back normal, however he thought he felt something on my left ovary during the exam.
I was then admitted to hospital as I was still in pain, sometimes it is difficult for me to walk but I don't see a correlation with my periods - they are heavy but not excruciating...
Anyway the Ultrasound came back and that was normal so there wasn't any cyst. They said it may be constipation as constipation can cause pelvic pain. After taking all my constipation treatment and still taking Movicol daily, I am still having the same pains so my Doctor has referred me to a Gynaecologist as he said he is at loss to explain my pain.
I was in hospital a few days ago and they said my white blood cell count is high (had the flu at the time) and this indicates an inflammation but other than that my bloods and urine sample was fine - as a precaution they gave me another 2 week course of antibiotics in case of PID.
The pain constantly feels like a dull ache (like having constant period pains) around my pelvis and groin but the last couple of days I have felt it in my lower back.
Sometimes for no known reason the pain can get worse....and I can barely move and it feels like my pelvis area is burning up from the inside and it does spread to the top of my thighs at times. During the times it was really bad- I felt it on the bone bit to the left/top of the entrance of the vagina bit.
My GP did mention Endometriosis, but when I looked at the list of symptoms, I was confused as I don't have very painful periods or pain during/after sex...my periods are regular but just heavy then over the course of the period they get lighter and stop after 7/8 days.
I'm just really worried about my consultation on Friday and what the Gynaecologist might say...
Does this sound like Endometriosis to anyone or has anyone had similar symptoms?
