Since last July, I've been suffering from chronic pelvic pain. I constantly have a dull ache similar to period pain and often have a burning sensation in the same as well - normally to my right hand side and it gets worse the week before, during and for a few days after my period. I get shooting pains down my legs, back ache, and pain when opening my bowels. I'm also incredibly tearful, although this could be from the stress of it all.
So far I've had two regular ultrasounds and two transvaginal ones, all of which were apparently normal. I'm currently taking large doses of cocodamol, tramadol, naproxen, amitriptyline, and the combined contraceptive pill just to get through the day.
Last week I had a laparoscopy to see if it was endometriosis but the consultant failed to come and see me to tell me what happened after. After calling and emailing and calling some more, I had a short and blunt email saying "your condition is pelvic congestion syndrome". But I don't think this is right given my symptoms - it does not get worse standing or walking and I'm 24 and have never been pregnant for starters. I also spoke to my GP who said this diagnosis is sometime given when they don't know what else it could be.
As this man failed to listen properly to my symptoms I'm worried he's put me under this category because he doesn't know what else it is. Even my gp said that may be the case after looking again at my ultra sound results. Has his happened to anyone else?
