Could it be endometriosis?
Hi my daughter 14, it’s quite a long post so I apologise now! Back in July she woke suddenly in the middle of the night with right sided lower abdominal pain. After calling 111 a bit later in the day we went to the out of hours Doctors. They suspected appendictis and sent us to our local children department. After a few hours of being there and awaiting bloods we were sent home.
A few days later the pain was still there so we returned to the children’s ward and again she was examined and more bloods were taken. Again her bloods were showing signs of something but still within range. So we were sent home.
We costumes the Gp who unable to really do anything other than prescribe some buscopan, referred is to a surgical consultant.
We first saw the consultant in November, he was clueless as to what it could be and requested an ultrasound. The ultrasound was on 19th Dec and showed nothing suspicious! (Frustrating)
So a last week we went back to the Gp who has now referred her to a gynaecologist.
She started her periods when she was 10 - they have over the last year become VERY heavy and VERY painful. Quite recently she has developed (what we thought) an intolerance to dairy but now I read the symptoms which include diarrhoea!
Would be greatful for anyone’s opinions.
