I have been suffering with chronic pain since last October and have been taking Tramadol as no other pain killer is working the pain is in my lower back, sometimes my legs at the tops and pain around my tummy and groin that comes and goes. I also have been suffering with really bad constipation and find that I can only eat small meals which has lead to a 3 stone weight loss. I am feeling really down and depressed as because of my illness my husband of 17 years and I are getting divorced and the Dr I have been seeing said my Ultra-sound scan was only showing a cyst (4cm) and other than that every thing is normal, so I have had no choice but to pay private for a second opinion last week and now the new Dr is saying that he thinks it is endometriosis and has given me Mefenamic Acid, Tranexamic Acid & Audmonal for the painful periods and constipation and has advised me to not take the Tramadol as they can become adictive. H has offered to re-scan me and possibly do a Laporscopic operation to see if it is Endometriosis, but from reading up I am not sure if there is much point as even if it is Endometriosis there is nothing that can be done anyway, does anyone have any suggestions about what I do next please?
