Looking for a bit of support and wondering what people would recommend in terms of pain support and just generally trying to be a bit more comfortable when bloating/constipation/ spasms occur and what people with similar symptoms were diagnosed with - where your Endo was?
I’ve not had my lap yet but my GP and women’s health physio are both suspecting Endo. I’m currently an urgent referral but have been waiting 6 weeks and still haven’t heard anything.
I’ve had two really bad episodes of pain which left me unable to sit on my bottom for most of the day and that pain killers just wouldn’t touch. The pain was excruciating and I couldn’t walk at all.
For years I’ve had tummy problems that they put down to IBS- I’ve had colonoscopy and endoscopy and I’ve had internal examinations of my bladder as well with no concluding results. I’ve had ultrasounds which again have been clear. I have persistent UTIs and when I pee my bladder feels like your skin when someone Chinese burns you- it feels as if it’s stretched from the inside? It’s a weird feeling but really uncomfortable. I have really bad urgency and embarrassingly so have wet myself a few times in the past year due to pelvic floor problems- my physio said my muscles are all too tense which is the opposite to most pelvic floor problems- I also get recurring kidney pain which can be sharp or dull. Wondering if the kidney pain is common with others?
I’ve also recently been going from being really constipated to then having the runs and it’s just making me feel rubbish.
My GP started me on Mefenamic Acid and I’m not sure if it helps or not? It makes me feel super bloated and at times I have no appetite at all. Wondering if others have experienced this? Or whether they think it helps?
Sorry for this very long winded post just wondering what people have tried that’s helped as I’m getting impatient waiting and I feel as though my symptoms are getting worse.
