My wife has been dealing with what she describes as severe lower abdominal pain for about a year. We have been to the emergency room, she has undergone exploratory laparoscopic surgery, been on almost every type of birth control that comes in a pill, all to no avail. Please help us! If you know of someone with the following symptoms who has been properly diagnosed and treated please, PLEASE post to this thread and let us know what you know!
Here's everything about her situation:
Constant pain in lower abdomen worsening at time of menstrual cycle
Pain sometimes accompanied with nausea
Pain often spreading to inner thigh area
Pain subsides somewhat while laying flat
Increased discomfort when sitting up
Pain lessens when heat is applied
Some pain associated with bowel movements during flare-ups
Flare-ups last anywhere from a day to a week
No pain when urinating
Pain is not restricted to one side of the body
Laparoscopic surgery results were ordered to look for endometriosis. No signs of endometriosis were found. All organs observed seemed to be in healthy condition.
