For the past five months i have been suffering from pelvic pain. I find the pain difficult to describe. It is mostly where the hip joint is but sometimes can be felt just under my ribs and sometimes i have back pain too (kidney area).
My periods are regular have a 25/26 day cycle and i have some clotting. I dont have bad period pain but do get very tired the day before my period.
The pain came on suddenly and was a dull achey pain to begin with, sometimes it would be painful at night and i found it difficult too sleep. It has got better over the last 2 months and i only feel the pain now when i sneeze, cough, bend over or stretch too much. When the pain comes it feels like all the muscles in my stomach are pulling and it feels bruised inside.
I would describe the pain as mild until one of the things above happens then its moderate. The symptom im finding the hardest is fatigue. Im constantly tired and struggling at work because of this.
I have been for an ultrasound which showed nothing, had a ca125 blood test which was fine and had other blood tests (kidney,liver,anaemic) which came back ok.
Tomorrow i have an appointment with the consultant so i guess i will find out a bit more.
