Possible Endometriosis?? Not sure
(Sapulpa, OK, U.S.)
I'm 23 years old and last year of 2016 in February I had this pain in my right pelvic area that was so bad I couldn't stand up straight, walking hurt, and a week and a half before my period actually started the pain got worse.
My cycle was so bad and I was on my period for two weeks I was seen by my doctor, he set me up for an ultrasound and I also had a pap done after he prescribed me medication to stop the bleeding and put me on naproxen which never helped.
The pain in my lower right pelvic area continued for 3 months, it had its times where it was constant and off and on. But each month since then my periods have been painful, heavy, passed large clots, pain before and after urinating, constipation/diarrhoea, diarrhoea while on my cycle, lower back pain on right side. Every time I sent my doctor it was the same ol same ol he ignored me is what I feel like.
January two weeks before my period, January 13th 2017 the pain was super bad again, pelvic pain and lower back pain was really bad. I went to my doctor that same day when he set up a vaginal ultrasound and I also went to the emergency room that night because the pain be became so unbearable.
I had a CT scan with dye, it was normal and once I had my ultrasound done results for it came back normal but still having the pelvic pain.
Finally I'm going to see a GYN on the 7th of February. I don't want pain pills or anything I want relief and for someone to actually listen.
