Fed up and a moan

Just a moany post... I was put on norethisterone to bring on my period. I took it as directed for a week and now currently 4 days off the pills waiting for my period, in massive pain!! I haven’t been able to move or walk properly for the past two days.. the achy legs, joints, bones, limbs and head is just killing me slowly!! Last night I was laid in bed twitching and couldn’t stop!!!

The pain is unreal!! Supposed to be going to London for 4 days on Monday and dreading my period arriving then.. or this pain just continuing for much longer! I just want my period!

Know exactly what you are going through-I remember laying on the floor of the stockroom as my period had started and the bowels were on overtime-every month it felt as if I had the flu for the 1st 24 hours so you have a good moan. My GP prescribed Ponstan(mefamic acid) I used to take one capsule and within half an hour I could feel the pain abating and I could function more normally. I don't know how old you are whether you have or have not got children but all I can say through my experience was that the menopause was the best thing that happened to me now all I have to contend with is the bouts of pain from the Endo scar tissue on the ascending colon followed by loose bowel movements. Good luck x

Im only 27, and TTC baby number two. So I don’t want the menopause just yet! Although right now I think that may be the better option!!

And yes the cold I’m glad you said, I feel like I have the flu! It’s horrible. I have codeine at home and if needed I can get oramorph or tramadol! But I darent have them as I’m quite sensitive and I need to be lucid and be able to drive!!
