The last few months I've had the most horrible periods that i've ever had. The cramps were absolutely horrific!! Bad enough that I had almost passed out from some. I tried everything I could think of (midol, pamprin, water, herbs, exercise...etc...)to get some kind of relief. However, nothing would help. This month, after my period has ended, I am still having what felt like menstrual cramps along with extreme lower back pain. I contacted my obgyn for an exam. She assured me that this was all normal since I've been on birth control for almost 5 years.
Its been almost 3 weeks since the end of my period, and I am still having these pains almost every day. I finally gave up and went to the hospital when the pains had changed to both menstrual cramps and a shooting pain on the right side of the same area. They did a pelvic exam along with an ultrasound. The ultrasound didnt show anything but an enlarged ovary on my right side. They also took a urine sample, which did not show anything either. The dr. said that he has no idea of what could be causing it or where to go from here. Any advice of what the cause or diagnosis could be?? What kinds of tests or treatments are available?
