I have had pain in my pelvic area (mainly right, but also left side) for 7 years now. They thought Endo or PCOS was the cause of my pain but after MRI's, laparoscopies and ultrasounds, they could not find anything 'medically' wrong with me.
I have now been diagnosed with Chronic Pelvic Pain and was on Gabapentin however now on Pregabalin. I also take Tramadol and was on the Mefenamic Acid but now get an injection every 3 months to stop me from ovulating. I am now going through medical menopause.
I was discharged from Gynae and advised that I will be invited to a group to speak about my pain. Gynae say there is nothing medically wrong with me. I have been discharged from the bowel and stomach department too.
The pain was manageable for 6 months out of the 7 years but never went away, and that was only recently.
The past 3 weeks have got a lot worse - Was unable to move my leg for 45 minutes, no matter how hard i tried and today, I crashed the car because of the stabbing pain catching me off guard (luckily no-one else was involved or in the car with me).
I am at the end of my tether and don't know what to do now!!
