To briefly explain I have just been diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis I have a chocolate cyst & have been suffering excruciating pain in my right pelvis for over 3 months.
The good news is that I’ve finally found night time pain relief which allows me to sleep through. I was prescribed voltarol suppositories 5 days ago & have managed to sleep for first time in over 6 weeks.
But the daytime/ evening is still a struggle. I’m taking paracetamol & codeine every 4 hrs & have a heat pad but at times the pain is unbearable.
Any tips on managing the pain would be greatly appreciated. I’ve already been advised to look at diet & supplements & drink lots of water. I’ve tried various painkillers but not much success.
