Hi, asking for some help, advice... I suffer from what I have self diagnosed as chronic pelvic pain... I get pain bouts approx every 2-3 months (so not monthly, but at the same time each month when they occur), the doctor asks about on a scale of 1-10 where is the pain, honestly sometimes its a 12 or 13 so off the charts. I've been on depo for years so dont actually get periods, although when this pain flares up my nipples get extremely sore which leads me to believe its hormonal. I've tried most pain meds, anti-inflammatory, anti-spazmotics, amitriptiline etc, I've had scans, xrays, ultrasounds and a laparoscopy to look for endometriosis, nothing found or conclusive.... yet I still suffer with debilitating pain. Right now I'm in day 4 of continuous 24 hour cycles of pain episodes with no more than 1-2 hours between pain attacks (including right through the night!). My mother suffered the same as me and had a hysterectomy which worked for her, this is something I really want and am trying to get a referral to gyno for the 3rd time in as many years, any help, advice or suggestions would be welcome, thank in advance.
