Im 26 years old. I started my period at 14 completely pain free I Was then on the pill since I was 16-early twenties no period issues. However I was diagnosed with anemia last year.
I stated to notice ovulation pain for a while but put it to get it older.. then Since July I stated with pelvic pain and lower back pain. Noticed on my period I had horrendous pains like I’ve never experienced before never had period pain at all previously. So this was a shock.
If I look back the last few years my periods have been heavyier darker blood, with clots and leaks and gushing of blood whilst on periods at times..
I ended up in A&E with horrendous pain on July 31st ,l whilst on my period the worst period pain I have ever left in my life and my legs were shaking. My CT showed a tiny bit of fluid around my left ovary but nothing else, they said it was either a cyst that burst or just my period as I was on it at the time. I was given strong pain killers.
Again my period came in August and I was stroke by horrendous pain I could barley walk
Since then I’ve had constant pelvic / ovary back pain when I’ve been on my period I’ve had striking pain so much that I can’t walk. Pains in to my legs, and having to take high pain killers.
They sent me for a abdobimal ultrasound The transvaginal was too painful to do and they saw my ovaries extremely clear on the screen, normal size, no masses or abdonmalities. Same with my uterus and endometrial lining, all normal.
Still the pelvic pain was continuing constantly. I also had IBS symptoms, acid reflux,ramping stomach pain, burning pain in my hips, legs, stomach and Ribs.
My appitite is fine, I’m not constantly bloated. But I’m sick of all of this.
Previous history of constant UTIS, institital cystitis, bowel issues since I was a teen including fetal inpactation.
I did a private CA125 test via medichecks whilst on my period and my levels were slightly raised at 47.
I’ve spoken to 6 doctors and my gyno who aren’t worried about things but obviously I’m very anxious.
I have family with endometriosis..my gyno suspects endo and she’s put endo and lap as my surgery next week I have my lap on the 24th
I’m very anxious which I imagine is making symptoms 100 percent worse.
Kind words would be helpful
