I'm 48, overweight and in terrible pain!
For the last couple of years I've been getting pain on my right side - Doctor sent me for the ovarian cancer blood test and a scan and this was all ok, but the pain didn't go. This week on the second day of my period (which is always heavy, with clots - seems like too much information) I got a terrible pain in my side that travelled through to my back. After a night with no sleep and went to the local A&E, had an ECG, blood tests, urine tests and the doctor prodded my tum, all over and said that every seemed ok, and put it down to a bad period and possible muscle strain. I've been put on codein and diclafenac but the pain is still there - but not as bad as it was.
When I'm sat down, I'm ok, but when I stand up it's terrible and I really have to 'straighten myself up' It's beginning to worry me now - I haven't been to work since Tuesday. When I'm up I am ok, not free of the pain but ok and I can take the dog for a short walk!
Sorry to ramble but I'm just looking for clues.
Thanks for listening XX
