For the past three years or so I have been experiencing chronic pelvic pain. Over the years it has gotten worse. I am only 22 years old and I feel much older than that. I have been to over twelve doctors ranging from a gynecologist, had a colonoscopy, for spinal specialists lower back pain with weakening of nerves in my lower body, the urologist for urgency, had a laparoscopy to look for endometriosis which was not there, physical therapy for a year, massages...and the list goes on. I have had all of this done and not one doctor can figure this out. The pain in my lower stomach is triggered by exercise, intercourse, and two weeks before menstruation. The pain has gotten to be so bad that it makes me sick. I have to sit still until the awful sharp cramping pain goes away, sometimes taking 15 minutes. I don't know what to do next but I can not live like this. Please help me.

  • I have those symptoms too, its soooo annoying because somedays I can't go to school or work it got so bad. I feels like somebody is just stabbing me in the tummy and I barely eat because I have no appetite anymore Ive had it for about a year and I wish that I could get it cured so I can have a normal life again.
