Hello. I'm new here. So, I'm about to celebrate my 40th bday in 2 weeks when Surprise... I get this extreme pain in my pelvic area. The 1st time, I got written off as having UTI. The 2nd was a trip to the ER & nothing was resolved. The 3rd time (6 days later) another trip to the ER. This time I was given medication (Percocet), which may I add, keeps the pain at bay for about two hours. Finally, the Gyn tells me I'm fine. It's just a "small" fibroid. I'm new to all this & tried to do some homework before visiting but I was in too much pain. I was told to "watch & wait". Excuse me?! My pain won't wait. I've never had children. My periods are usually 10-14 days, very heavy. I was told I'm only experiencing pain because I'm ovulating? I'm done with my menstrual & I'm still in pain. Are the DR's at this hospital cough..Kaiser..cough) not educated on fibroids? I asked the gyn if I'm experiencing estrogen dominance or fibroid degeneration.. she was clueless then said no. I can't keep popping Percocet to "mask" the pain. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I've been dealing with non stop pain for this entire month! I'm in tears.
