So I have been in constant extreme pain for a month now since my surgery and diagnosis - also had mirena fitted. I have been taking max doses of codeine, tramadol and paracetamol. I tried gabapentin without effect. Whenever I take any NSAID medications like ibuprofen, naproxen I get worse cramps and diarrhoea, my dad also suffers from stomach ulcers and bleeding with these so that may be the case. Anyway I went to the doctor today to try get some oramorph or similar but she said that they do not prescribe anything like that for endometriosis in scotland. She also went on to say that as I only have some stage 1 endo that it shouldnt be that bad (I "educated" her on her bull**** theory). I then provided 3 books on endometriosis that she said were too old and one was American so didnt count. I then explained that I had talked to some people on this forum who had been given morphine as pain relief, she proceeded to start laughing and told me not to use forums as its just people complaining with nothing better to do. I explained that the people on the forum were the only ones I felt understood my pain and she got annoyed because I was insinuating that doctors didnt understand my pain.
Since the mirena I have had bad nausea, she said it would just be due to constipation from so many painkillers and said there was nothing she could do. She refused to take out my mirena and has in addition given me birth control pills. She also ignored when I told her the side effects of me taking NSAIDs medication and decided I needed to take mefenamic acid tablets.
I came home and for the first time in 2 years I cried my eyes out. I dont know what to do anymore but I cannot carry on with this pain. Has anyone in Scotland been given anything like morphine for endometriosis pain?
