Hi I’m new here!
Joined because I’d like some more info.
I’ve been tracking my periods and all it’s related symptoms on the Clue app (which I highly recommend) for the past two years. I’m not looking to get pregnant, so I like to know where I am in the month.
Here’s what I’d like to know more about:
I noticed that since I’ve started tracking, I suffer excruciating shoulder/neck/arm pain on days 1, 2, & 3 when I have my period.
Sometimes the pain travels into the right hand side of my chest and down the right side of my stomach, just below my rib cage.
Right at this moment, I’m on day 3 and I’m in agony. I feel nauseous it’s so painful.
After a little google of “pain right side period tapped wind feeling”, the first thing that appeared was diaphragmatic endometriosis.
Now I’m not one to go OTT with symptom checkers, but I do like to research. The reasons I believe it’s this is simply due to the fact that a) I’ve tracked it and it’s been this exact same situation for at least two years now. Bang on, every period, same days every time. Never in between period either.
And b) a symptom of DE is referred pain - oddly when I put heat on my stomach area (where the endo apparently is), my shoulder pain gets better.
Anyone else had a similar problem?
I’d like to do a bit of my own research before I see a doctor.
