Will try to keep it brief... started getting left side pelvic pain about 10 months ago which has been gradually getting worse and sometimes spreads to my back, down my leg, sometimes in the middle of pelvis or on the right side but mainly left. Get really bad flare ups of pain that leave me bed bound for weeks, unable to work and with no energy or appetite. Had lap last June but no endo found. I’m worried they might have missed it because it was a general gynae not an endo specialist? I have bowel symptoms too like really painful bowel movements and constipation/diarrhoea but I’ve had a sigmoidoscopy which came back clear. Keep being told it’s just ibs. Normal pain killers don’t touch the pain, have to use tramadol and am permanently glued to my hot water bottle. Worried that it’s endo, but also unsure because I’ve never had particularly bad periods and the pain doesn’t seem to relate to my cycle? Could it still be endo anyway? Just at the end of my tether being in so much pain and it’s having a massive impact on my life. Don’t feel like I can cope with this pain much longer but keep just being waved off with ibs. Anyone been through a similar situation?
