Hey! I'm Emily and I'm 24. Since suffering with Pelvic inflammatory disease in November 2014 which I collapsed and was rushed to hospital I've had the worst pain that will not go away.
In January 2015 I spent the month in hospital with bad abdo pain that spread down my legs and up my back into my shoulders. I was having morphine injections, tramadol IV, liquid morphine, naproxen and paracetamol IV daily for more or less 4/5 weeks in hospital. With the end result having a laparoscopy to them finding 'pockets of infection' from the past PID which wasn't detected on bloods or in my urine. I couldn't walk or really do anything for the whole month. A week or so after the laparoscopy I felt slight relief and protested I wanted to get off IV meda and try to go home. With determination I went home 2 weeks later, yay!
Since then I've pretty much suffered a uti or suspected uti every month and have been on every anti biotic under the sun monthly. With another 4 hospital admissions since then it bring some me to now where I've just come out of my first hospital admission of the year. The pain has now got so bad I cannot exercise anymore and I'm having to miss time off work. I feel I've come to a dead end as no pain killers are working anymore and everytime I go to my gp there's no sign of infection. I'm so fed up and it's really starting to get me down as I'm so young and shouldn't be bed ridden constantly! Please someone share their experiences with me and the outcome as I'm starting to loose faith I'll ever be pain free. I found out before Christmas I have an appointment with a pain specialist in march, is this something people have been to before and have had a good experience? Please help
