Interesting information

I am 17 years old, and have been made to believe I had endometriosis, last year I had a laporoscopy and found out that I did have endometriosis but my pelvic pain was still severe and in my right side. It felt like a sharp shooting pain that would really hurt, so bad I was taking tramadol! I thought maybe my endometriosis had grown back, but I changed gynecologists and saw a specialist. He told me that the sharp shooting pains in one specific area pointed to one thing. Abdomino Cutaneous Nerve Entrapment Sydrome, apparently it is so common but people rarely get diagnosed with it and most doctors don't know what they are looking for. It means that when I was diagnosed with having a problem i was put on the wrong treatment which triggered something off. Having surgery prevented me from walking around or doing a lot, which weakened my muscle causing the nerve to poke through my muscle and cause chronic pelvic pain! Anyone that has those symptoms ask your specialist about it! It really is so common, but rarely people get diagnosed with it!

Did a gynaecologist diagnose the cutaneous nerve entrapment and are you still suffering with it ? was any endometriosis removed during the laparoscopy or did the surgeon just look ?


Yes, I was diagnosed a week ago, so I am still getting the pain yes the Endo was lasered off
