I have Hashimotos (underactive thyroid) and Fibromyalgia and now being tested for Endo as I have excruciating pains in my pelvis, hips, legs, back and lower abdominal mostly at the time of my period. My fatigue has gotten much worse and I have been experiencing diarrhoea, bleeding from the bottom and pain during sex as well.
The doctors have recommended a blood test for my bowels, and a ultrasound scan which will then lead to being referred to gynaecology. I'm hoping I can get an answer for the pain and fatigue and my Fibro is not blamed again.
I know that the scan will probably not detect anything, so I'm expecting a laparoscopy is what is needed to check. I have also been prescribed Mefenamic Acid for the pain. Even thought the side effects of the drug is abdominal pain!
Anyone have any advice, or been in a similar situation?
