For years now I have put up with pain. I've been told it's IBS, then got put on the pill which I hate and really don't get on well with at all. Put it this way, I have panic attacks and depression on the pill, lose who I am. But I did it out of a step of faith. Had to come off it as was so ill. Then they gave me a scan and found polyps said that's what was causing the heavy bleeding and anemia. I had them removed eight years ago. After them being removed I thought I would no longer be in pain. But I starred having pain as soon as my period finish and kept getting what felt like cystitis or a water infection. So I kept being tested for it but nothing showed up. I continue to get these symptoms alongside awful pain in my pelvic area and bladder, my bladder feels full quickly and it's very painful to hold and water. I can hold on for half and hour but that's it. Then comes ovulation time, again I'm in terrible pain. I also get lower back pain and my stomach swells. In fact I'm going through it now which I how I ended up on here. Went for a smear recently and the nurse couldn't find my cervix, turns out I have a prolapse covering it. Oh happy days!
So despite the prolapse I'm questioning if I have endometriosis and if when I had the polyps removed I was left with scar tissue. Also think I'm perimenopausal, in fact I'm sure I am. Anyone else experienced anything like myself? I'm so tried all the time too, it's ridiculous. I ran my first Maraton for charity in October last year. Don't know how I did it feeling so fatigued all the time.
