Hiya ladies, i guess I would just really appreciate anyone's thoughts on my situation. When i was much younger i used to get really bad periods, vomiting, time off school etc. I then went on the combi pill at 17, and things were a lot better. I am 32 now and came off the pill in Jan, to give mu body a break as keen to start a family in the next few years. Over the last 2.5 years i have had ongoing what i thought were UTIs. I didnt have a lot of the normal symptoms but always a sore back, eased with painkillers and hot water bottles, and feeling really tired and generally icky. When they dip tested the urine samples there was always stuff there, such as white blood cells or blood. But, when they sent off the samples they always came back clear. I have been on and off antibiotics throughout this time, including 6months on a low dose.
But, being off the pill my periods have gotten worse again, to the point of going to emergency doc at 5am this weekend as i felt like I couldn't pee, the pain/ pressure when was on the loo was so severe i thought i was going to pass out and ended up having a panic attack. I have ibs related constipation and this has always been worse at period time but it felt like proper contractions and pressure in my whole pelvis.
The emergency doc gave me coedine which i had to take every 4 hours to ease the back pain, and my period eventually came the next morning.
The emergency doc thinks it has not been UTIs at all, and my own doc has agreeed to refer me to gynaecologist today. Sooooo i guess i am wondering if all this sounds familiar to any of you guys?!
