I am a 29 year old female, mother of 2 beautiful kids. I have been to over 7 different doctors and not one can tell me what is wrong with me.

Almost a year ago my face started getting this pin ****k/tingling sensation. It is everywhere from my eyelids to my cheeks, pretty much all over. I even passed out on two occasions when the tingling got really bad. I also started getting terrible lower back pain which I originally thought was my kidneys but doctors say my kidnes are fine. The tingling only happens when my lower back pain gets really bad. The back pain radiates from my rectum up into sometimes my middle back. My lower back is very sore. The pain tends to get much worse when I have a bowel movement and sometimes I have to lay down for hours after a BM. The ONLY thing that has helped me is anti-inflamitory medication which sometimes completely takes the pain away. I'm on Tramedol and Naproxon. I have litterately had everything done. I have been tested for lyme disease 3 times, had an MRI, CAT, and X-Rays. I've been to chiropractors, internal medicine specialists. Last week I even had a laparoscopy and the doctor found adhesians and endometriosis which he removed BUT the back pain is still there, it's almost worse than it was before. The doctor even cut 4 nerves so I wouldn't have anymore lower back pain but the pain is still there making me question if maybe it's something else. I'm saying prayers that someone here can maybe give me a glimpse into what might be wrong. MY kids need their mom back and I need me back. I'm trying so hard not to get scared and depressed but I'm so tired of feeling ill all the time. If you have don't have any ideas for me then I ask you please send a prayer my way, I would really appreciate that. Thanks so much.

  • Does the tingling always come afte the back pain. Maybe it's a panic attack from the anticipation of the pain to come. Facial tingling didn't jive with much except TMJ, Trigeminal Nerve Neuralgia and Panic attacks. Has anyone looked at your ovaries? Have you been to a pain clinic?

  • It's probably the endometriosis. It needs to be "excised" in order to be completely removed. It also grows on the intestines (which it sounds like yours has) and needs a bowel surgeon on hand to remove. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/erc/?yguid=78573132 Post your question on the above yahoo group and you'll get some great advice. This site also has good info: http://www.endometriosistreatment.org/html/reprints1.html Good luck
