I've been having problems for at least 5 years now. Being only 22 it seems that the doctors are unwilling to find an answer
My symptoms are:
Constant, severe lower abdominal pain on the right side, I can sometimes feel a sort of lump there?
Mix of constipation and diarrhoea
Nausea and dizziness
Heavy and very painful periods
Lower back pain
Shooting pain down my leg, also felt sometimes going up/in my vagina
Constant vaginal discharge, sometimes looks like thrush/bv
Swelling of the fingers
Random bruising on my legs
Went to a gyn around two years ago and he couldn't find any reason for this.
Ended up in A&E two years ago and they removed my appendix; which clearly wasn't the issue as I'm still having the exact same pains.
Went for an Ultrasound today (on my abdomen, kidneys, also internal look at my pelvis) and everything was declared ok..
I am on the contraceptive pill, but the pains started 3 years after being on the pill. I've tried taking a break from it.. but I was still in pain.
So where am I supposed to go from here? Every time I got to the GP I'm just given painkillers.. it took three visits to my GP complaining of abdominal pains before a GP actually felt my stomach, the rest just handed over a prescription straight away.
