Hello. I am new to this messaging idea but thought it may help.
Here's my story.
I am 21 and since March last year I have battled with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, chronic pelvic and lower back pain and numerous Gynae appointments.
When it all started, I had noticed an increase in vaginal discharge but with me going on holiday shortly, I brushed it to one side and never really thought about it.
However, once I was on holiday, I experienced a lot of very unusual bleeding. That was when I knew something wasn't right.
Since then I have been in constant pain. I was first told it was PID and was confused as they tested me for STD's and STI's. I have been with my partner for 5 years and we are each other's firsts. They gave me antibiotics for two weeks and they seemed to make it worse!
I went back for another examination, the GP thought it hadn't gone and gave me them again. On my third appointment, my symptoms had not gone at all- they only got worse. GP then thought it was endo and sent me to Gynae. I then went for a laparoscopy where he was sure to find endo. Instead, I was told there was no endo there and that I have a very twisted Fallopian tube. I then had a post op appointment with him who explained to that he believes that I have had pid at least once before which was not caused by an STD but caused by myself. From that, he believes I have had salpingitis which attacks the Fallopian tubes. I was also told that I have pelvic congestion syndrome where too much blood pools in my pelvis (yuk).
The region where my tubes are is very painful all of the time and I have very irregular periods with clots. He has put me on the pill for 3 months at a time.
I noticed a few weeks ago of some of the symptoms of pid again, such as green/yellow discharge. The past few days have been the worst though. I have had a fever, fatigue whee I can't get out of bed and the pain I usually have is much much worse. I went to GP where she thinks I have it again. I am again on antibiotics and I am so upset I just can't believe I have got it again.
As I sit here, I feel so dizzy.
This time seems so different to the last time. I am unable to work it is that bad.
I have my Gynae appointment tomorrow morning to we will see then.
I am so sorry my post is so long!
P.s, I have also had two ultrasounds to check the tubes. Can they really see the tubes that well?
Thanks for reading.
