Well yesterday was a total loss. I spent the entire morning at the doctor's office and more than an hour on the road home due to a bad traffic jam on the highway. I've had a big increase in bleeding and pain and the doctor isn't sure why. She took a biopsy and I've been scheduled for an ultrasound. It may be a few weeks before I know anything. She also took me off the hormone pills I was taking and switched me to a quarterly injection instead.
I spent the rest of the day laying on the couch - exhausted and in lots of pain. The pain then woke me up in the middle of the night and has been getting worse as the morning goes on. I think I'm about 4 hours away from needing an actual pain pill.
Whatever is going on has triggered a migraine that doesn't respond as well to my usual rescue meds, my legs are in a nasty fibro flare and yet the squeaky wheel is this endometriosis or whatever it is. My periods were growing increasingly painful for about a year until it the pain become incapacitating in August and September. The one is September landed me in the ER. I told my doctor I never want to have another period again. I just can't manage the pain without serious painkillers and that is not acceptable.
When it comes down to it, I've become terrified of my cycle. I don't understand why my body is torturing me the way it is and I wish stopping it wasn't so complicated.
