I've had problems with my periods since I was 13 and have been wrongfully diagnosed twice, first as IBS then PID I've had so many operations u can play dot to dot on my scars 😂.
In 2005 I was diagnosed with endometriosis, I have been passed from piller to post & had every combination of pain relief you can imagine that I'm running out of options!i
I've been suffering now 24yrs it's depressing, my symptoms consist of
*Constant severe/disabling abdominal pain. (worse when ovulating or on)
*Nausea /vomiting. (causing dental issues)
*constipation /diarrhoea *ovarian cysts.
*low immune system. *struggle to concentrate.
*Constantly getting infections. * Body aches.
*Persistent tiredness .* Lack of appetite .
*Insomnia. * Headaches.* Memory loss .
*Mood swings. * Low moods & Depression.
*Anxiety & panic attacks. * Itchy all over .
*Constant thirst /Dry mouth. *low sex drive.
*excessive sweating? (does anyone else have this problem?)
*extreme weight loss! Just to name a few.
I caught sepsis & encephalitis because my immune system is weak, I've gone from a dress size 10/12 to a 4/6 in under 6mths and I weigh 42.5kg! (I've been attempting to gain weight for 3 years now 😂)
I'm currently under the pain clinic who have put me on 30mg/ph butrans patches, 600mg of pregabalin, dyhdrocodine & anti-sickness tablet's, all have their own set of horrible side effects!
I smoke cannabis for pain as the pain clinic refuse to give me cbd oil on prescription?
It's the best pain relief I've found so far & thier are loads of studies on cannabis for pain relief.
I am on pip as I am unable to work, when I'm on I can't leave the house as I bleed through my clothes.
My daily life is being seriously effected, its put strain on my marriage and my Family, I'm 37 have 3 beautiful children and had my tubes tied, I asked for a hysterectomy and was refused? 😂 I'm now hunting for other ways to get the help I need as I'm out of idea's?!
Please help anyone 😊
