I have always suffered with extremely painful periods. Last September they started becoming irregular (only having between a couple of days to a week between bleeding) they were extremely heavy and painful to the point of passing out at work and codeine didn't even touch the pain. I was prescribed mefenamic acid, tranexamic acid, nothing seemed to be working. I had various blood tests, ultrasounds and swabs. Everything came back clear. I was referred to a gynaecologist last December who told me there was nothing wrong with me and "its just how I am" he put me on the combined pill and told me to take it every day to stop any bleeding and to only stop if I have significant break through bleeding. August just gone I had significant breakthrough bleeding. I went to the doctors for advice. They said to come off the pill for 5 days and take mefenamic acid. I did this and about 5 days later I had significant breakthrough bleeding again. This has happened 5 times since then with the doctors giving me the same advice and ignoring the fact I was in extreme pain and had been bleeding heavily off and on for the past month. Relying on mefenamic acid to stop the bleeding each time. I had had enough and decided to go to a&e. They sent a letter through to my GP telling them that they believe I have endometriosis and that I need various blood scans again and maybe a laparoscopy to definitively diagnose it. My GP said she never got the letter and reluctantly booked some blood tests anyway after much persuasion. My blood test appointment was today however, my appointment was cancelled. I am extremely worried I am constantly in pain, tired. When I am bleeding I can't even get out of bed. I have already lost one job due to phoning in sick as I physically can't get out of bed. I know there won't be any medical professionals readying this but I really would like some advice on what to do next. All I want is to know the reason why I am constantly experiencing so much pain, fatigue and irregularities with my periods.
