I'm female, 28yr's old... I am so frustrated and getting scared now after 12 months of tests and specialists trying to diagnose me and have come up with nothing... It started out after I had to sadly have a termination, after the op. I woke up in pain.
No one seems to think this is what caused my problems to date and I am so lost, I don't know myself anymore... I have a lot of stomach/ bowel problems now, I have irregular (if any) menstrual cycles, often always mostly old blood, which come to think of it, after the termination, I was bleeding and in so much agony with stomach pain, I bleed out for two months, mostly that same old blood. How can they rule that out? What the hell is this!!!
I have had CT scans, ultra sounds, stool samples, blood tests, colonoscopy & endoscopy.. What is next, what is this... I'm going crazy...
Please help if anyone has any suggestions!!!
I'm getting so depressed, I've lost my job due to lack of concentration as I spend majority of my days in SO MUCH PAIN.
Please, Please Help!
No Diagnosis, Please Help???
I can empathize with you. It's such a helpless feeling when you don't know how to feel better, and eventually, this helpless feeling leads to extreme anxiety. At least that was true in my personal experience. Untreated anxiety can lead to depression. And in the past, I have also experienced chronic pain along with the anxiety and depressed feelings. Has your doctor suggested any medications that are used for anxiety and depression? This might be the first step to getting you back on track. But please be patient, the process takes a while, just as it took a while to get this way. Hopefully starting on these types of medications might be just the thing to get you up and running and feeling better. Hope this helps.
Have you had a D&C? (shamefully plagiarized from a partial partner site. It is easier to quote directly than try and pass it off as my own work.)
"Dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure to remove tissue from inside your uterus. Doctors perform dilation and curettage to diagnose and treat certain uterine conditions — such as heavy bleeding — or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage or abortion."
You didn't mention it but it was the first thing I thought of. I know two women who have had this procedure performed successfully with a fairly rapid complete recovery.
Wishing you the best for recovery, Steve
