I have had 1 diag lap, and MRI, countless blood tests, Countless medicines - all the gynae related medicines such as mefanamic acid, tranecsamic acid, the pill and EVRA patches you name it I've tried it. I have absolutely no results that show anything to be a cause of my pain. I have been referred to a Pain Clinic and have tried TENS which does help a bit, Acupuncture which doesn't help at all and Im going on a BACKPACK course starting Tuesday 7th January which is a multidisciplinary approach with a physiotherapist and a psychologist. They think I have a muscular-skeletal issue. I have read a couple of guidelines for the treatment of CPP and the things I haven't tried are dry needling or the administration of anaesthetic in the muscles, myofascial release of trigger points which Id really like to look into and then if all that still doesn't work maybe a nerve block?
I am getting to the point where its become "normal" for me to sit on the floor with my knees to my chest for a few minutes every now and then to ease the pain at WORK! they barely even notice when Im groaning in pain at my desk. I don't know what to do I don't want to give up and just say "what the heck dose me up" and become like a cyborg with no idea where I am or what Im doing but I cant go on with the pain even on Gabapentin 1800mg a day. Ive even started taking Ibuprofen on top and paracetamol to try to kick the pain so I can carry on a relatively normal life but I have reflux problems and excess acid so ibuprofen will be no benefit to me in the long run at all.
What are some of your coping strategies and are there any things that you have tried which I haven't that might be of some benefit?
