I keep being asked how I would discribe my abdominal pain but it doesn't seem that many Dr's or nurses seem to understand me. Can anyone maybe help me discribe this better?
It's a heavy pain, like I've got a boulder in my lower tummy that radiates in different places depending on what position I'm in (on bad days). On a normal day to day basis it's like bad gas or horrid period cramps but constant, no let up after passing wind or visiting the bathroom. Like a bad headache or migraine in my lower tummy. It's like carrying a weight around all day long and never getting comfy no matter how I sit and being too tired to stand for long.
I've tried comparing it to gas, to Nova virus pains, to period pains and to labour pains (labour was lovely by comparison btw).
Can anyone help me with trying to explain this to my Dr? I'm being tested for celiac but every new dr I see I have to go over it all over again and they all seem confused by my discribing it. Can anyone relate to what I've said above?
