Hi. I suffer with severe abdominal pain and tenderness. Sexual intercourse makes the pain much worse. It starts in my right side, low down, then the tenderness spreads right across my abdomen, sometimes my back aches too. Also, I get severe pins and needles in the soles of my feet. I know it is connected as when I have sex I feel the pain inside and it shoots down into my feet. It's really getting me down and ruining my relationship, as although I want to have sex with my partner,it causes me terrible pain and the pain lasts for days and weeks. I have seen doctors, had scans, but nothing shows up.When I mentioned the pain in my feet, the dr laughed and said 'well thats nothing to do with your stomach' Yes it is.Ive had it long enough to know. Does anyone have any experience of this, or know what it could be ? It's very hard living in constant pain, especially not knowing what it is. The dr said 'oh its probably IBS, but I know people with that condition and they dont have the same symptoms as I do. Please help if you can.Thankyou.
