A few months ago I had intense abdominal pain whilst I was on my period, it woke me in the middle of the night ,it was borderline unbearable . It was hard to pin point the pain as it was all over my left side and came round onto the back.
I managed to get to the doctors who thought it could be my kidneys and sent me to hospital for scans , they gave me Codine and told me to come back for my scan. Anyway then pain happened again on my next period.
Long story short ultra sound showed a "shadow" on my kidney.
Then the ct scan came back clear.
No stones, no tumours no cysts and also scanned my ovaries which again came up clear.
I had this pain again just as intense last month but luckily had come codine left over to manage it.
I'm dreading my next period because I know I'll be in pain and I can't bare the thought of living like this and I don't know what the next step is or can find anyone going through something similar.
Technally there is "nothing wrong" with me.
On top of this intense pain I have had stronger period cramp pain. The intense pain is always on my left side.
