My life has been turned into absolutely nightmare. Like most stories I have read , Im 38 years always suffered with the typical IBS symptoms for nearly 12 years. Until 2 month ago it started with constant lower back ache and groin pain, bloating crumps , nausea,constipation,diarrhoea , sometimes rectum pain ,during my period I'm in tears with heavy periods , I used to suffer from bad periods pain when I was young .So far I have been to AE 3 times in the last 5 weeks with pain, went trough all differential diagnosis and investigations which included KUB , vaginal ultrasound of ovaries and womb , CT scan abdo/chest/pelvis scan irrespectively and blood tests . They found fibroids but they do not think they are the cause for the pain but i have been referred to gynaecologist anyway appointment booked in May (earliest appointment they could find).but on my last AE visit I requested to see a Gynaecologist and I kind of suggest to the her ? Could it be endometriosis after I have read some stories on this forums which were quite similar to what I'm experiencing , she said it could be but could not confirm without laparotomy since nothing was picked on any of the investigations ,so I asked for coil fitted which I have had so far for week , no change in my symptoms yet , I have been off sick for 5 weeks from work I don't know what to do , very hard to explain to work or family especially the investigations are normal. I feel my Gp does not take me seriously, I can't keep going to AE , I'm on oramorph and heat rubs/pads . I can't take anti-inflammatory they irritates my stomach badly , I'm depressed , I can't wait for May , the pain is constant every day .... . Any suggestions I'm on my wits end.
