For the last 3 months I have been suffering with severe lower back aches and lower abdominal cramps that really hurts when I move and cough or sneeze.
I am taking a lot of Codeine and Paracetmol. It feels like the worse period cramps without the periods. Then with my periods it gets so excruciation I can hardly move and it makes me feel sick and dizzy.
I have had blood tests which have come back clear and an ultrasound which I am waiting for the results of.
They think I have got Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome but all the tests have been clear. All my hopes are on the ultrasound results for endometriosis or polycystic ovaries. I am 21 years old.
Title: Symptom of chronic lower back aches
I have also suffered every day for 3 months with lower back period aches, I am on a cocktail of painkillers but only really get an hour of relief. I can't sit, stand, or lay for long and I am so tired of the constant nagging, dragging, aching, dull pain.
To make matters worse, I saw a Gynae Consultant for the first time yesterday and she dismissed my back problems and told me it was a case for Orthopaedics!!
So I have to wait for a referral to them before she will take things any further such as a laparoscopy. Don't know how I will cope until I see her in 4 MONTHS TIME!!
So sorry you are in this same debilitating pain.
