I'm 22 and for the past 2 years have struggled with horrendous pains! Over the years it has got much worse and now it's to the point where I am in tears with the pain! I have an appointment to see a gynaecologist at the hospital but I can't cope with the pain and in general it's disrupting my life!
It started off with my periods being really painful and pain outside of my period, i was in hospital for 8 days and in the end they said i had IBS! I then started getting pains when having sex (which is now unbearable so I don't even bother!) I suffer with back pains and hip pains (which throb) and pain in the tops of y legs! If I go out or the day I know the evening and next day is written off as I can barely move with my muscles and am near enough in bed with the pain! This weekend I have been in so much pain I have felt nauseas and have been sick a couple of times! I'm currently taking mefenemic acid from my GP bit it's not doing a lot!
Am I right in thinking this is symptoms of endometriosis and if so what can I do to ease the pain.
Thankyou for any help Em xxx
