I have been suffering from pelvic/lower abdominal pain for over 4 years now, and no cause has been found with scans or any form of blood tests. I honestly have had so many investigations involving xrays etc that i must glow green. But they all come back negative.
I have been labelled as having a psychosomatic issue with pain, but i know in myself something is wrong with my body, I am so worn down with this pain i can barely play with my 8month old daughter or do things i used to do before this pain began.
Since the start not only have i had the scans and blood tests etc but i have been given every pain killer upto tramadol.. and have been on these for over 2 years. Everytime i ask my gp for areferral he keeps putting me on a new painkiller and saying "we'll see how it goes with these first" or he'll make up an excuse like "i don't think its anything too serious". If i am in agony and can barely give my daughter the playtime/attention and care she needs then what sort of parent am i and how is that serious. If it weren't for my partner i swear i would not be a good mother, he has supported me through everything and does what i cant do with my daughter. But it makes me soo upset to see him doing things i should be able to do... I'm just wanting a referral to a gynaecologist not a letter to NASA saying i can go into space. What is soo hard to send me to a consultant in the field of gynaecology for a laparoscopy or an more invasive kind of scan that will be less harmful to my liver or body than taking all these pain meds?
I'mhonestly at the end of my rope here,i just wish GPs would listen to me or help instead of handing me a different painkiller each time instead of helping solve the problem.
