I'm off work (again) due to period pain.
I have had period pain since primary school. At secondary school I missed a dose of ibuprofen during my period which resulted in such bad pain I was passing out and writhing on floor of a maths lesson with the school nurse asking my sister if I could be pregnant as it looked like I was in labour. I've been admitted to hospital twice with suspected appendicitis due to what I now think is severe, stabbing ovulation pain. Ive been through so many diagnostic tests - ultrasounds, CT, MRI that found nothing and being in labour was easy as I basically had the same pain every month with my periods. Unfortunately pain is worsening each month again after a nice break with pregnancy and breastfeeding.
