Well, I don't know how to start have never written a blog before. I am 29 years old and have been living with this excruciating pain for 2 years now. I had SPD (symphasis pubic dysfunction) when I was 25 weeks pregnant with my second child , I had to have emergency cesarean but all the prodding made my SPD worse..I was in so much pain after... I then had a heamotoma from which I lost a lot of blood ... Any way the SPD had settled but this deep vaginal THROBBING pain (sorry TMI) has been there since, it has just got worse, it's there all the time..It get worse when:
1. I'm on or going to be on my periods at which point it has reached to unearable levels
2. If I sit on hard surfaces for too long
3. If I stand for too long
4. If I walk for a long distance (all 3 of the above flare it up and then it is sever for the next week and a half.
5. I get when going to the toilet it just feels sore
6. heavy loads
I have really had enough , but recently one of my friends mentioned endometriosis and I was amazed at how many symptoms were similar to mine...I finally don't think I'm going mad..or I can't take pain....My doctor has been great and has referred me to a gynecologist urgently my appointment is on wednesday
Reading all your posts has made me feel less mental...I just hope things move swiftly from here on in...
If any of you have any tips you can offer me please do...I'm glad i've joined
