Where are women supposed to go when they’re in agony with endo flare ups!? I went to my A&E at 4am last night and took 7 hours to see a doctor. I was having horrific pelvic pains, feeling very faint and nauseous and after having taken codeine at home I felt I was that desperate for help I had to go to A&E. I waited 7 hours to see a doctor to be told they couldn’t give me any pain relief because it wouldn’t solve the issue, taking other pain relief would just cause more complications apparently and it wasn’t an emergency, They wouldn’t do any scans to see if I had any cysts or anything further, both bloods and urine sample had high white blood cells, yet “there was no need to investigate”.
What do you do when you’re in agony and codeiene doesn’t help but the hospital won’t give better pain relief?? I’m now home still feeling faint and nauseous and in lots of pain. I understand A&E don’t specialise in endo but I was so upset by this experience.
