For over 2 years I've been dealing with horrible pelvic pain, nausea, fatigue, depression from not being able to get help. It's so severe I've had to drop out of college, stop doing my hobbies, cut back severely on how much I can work. I feel like a cripple. My periods are so heavy and literally last for 3 months straight, sometimes with only a week between.
I've been accused of being a drug seeker, told it was all in my head. Passed between pcp gynecologist gastroenterologist and psychologist. I've been told the periods are an issue but your pain isn't related- yeah right. Had tons of tests including ultrasound, ct, colonoscopy, hida scan etc etc. Been on ibs meds, elimination diet, more birth controls than I can count. Nothing helps. Without a diagnosis no one will prescribe anything for pain or nausea and my pain is so severe 1500 mg Tylenol just takes the edge off- and it's not worth the issues I'll give myself by taking that much.
I became convinced that I had endometriosis but it took a lot of searching to find a doctor willing to do the laparoscopy or even a d and c. Finally I found a doctor who did both of these and a hysteroscopy.
Much to my horror, they found nothing abnormal. They took some biopsies but don't expect anything unusual to come back. Where do I go from here? I can't live in this much pain. I recognize that I'm horribly depressed, I've been borderline suicidal in the past from the constant pain. I plan to see a therapist to help the depression, but I'll still be in pain. I feel like I've exhausted all my options. What tests can possibly be run? What haven't they ruled out- it feels like everything.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
