Hello lovely ladies,
The past 24 hours have been the worst of my life. With a 7 day late period finally arriving, I have never, ever experienced pain in my life like it. I was hunched on all fours on the bathroom floor, weeping and vomiting from the pain. I had already taken mefenamic acid , and also paracetamol with for the pains. They weren’t even touching it.
(I am due to meet a gynaecologist in May and I’m on the urgent waiting list for a diagnostic laparoscopy; Drs are pretty convinced this is endometriosis.)
I rang the oncall Dr at my GP for advise/further pain management before I made an appearance at A&E because I couldn’t cope any longer. I sobbed the whole phone call, it was so horrendous, she prescribed me some codeine and then some stomach protection and laxatives go help with the effects. If symptoms are to worsen, I’ll have to attend A&E. I’ve had 2 hot water bottles stuck to my front and back all day, I tried to go for a small walk and I literally cried the whole way to the end of the path and had to go straight back to bed .
What all do you find helps? Anything, absolutely anything would be useful. Im willing to try all the weird and wonderful remedies.
This is so debilitating and mentally draining. I’m exhausted. Big hugs to everyone going through this , it’s just awful.
