I live in chronic pain. The reason for my pain, is Endometriosis. I was diagnosed through surgery when I was 17. I have decided to have this blog, so that those in my life can get a peek into my day to day issues that affect my life in every way.

just getting this post up, will edit it up WAY better later

I already so anti-Endo I don’t want keep this updated.

My one appointment went okay, we just went over the fact I am still the same. Got an appointment/referral to an urologist finally, only been having issues since April 2008... My appointment will be august 31'st.

was supposed to see another doc, on Tuesday but he was sick to look at my blood work/hormone levels that are being created by taking the Indian drug I am trying, and to possibly ask for a referral to a new pain doc. (will explain more when not feeling so bitter/crappy)

so anyways on Thursday I tried to stop in to see him, before seeing Endo specialist so that I could show him the results also. But the other doc was still sick.

This was all Thursday, I was feeling really rough but still able to move just delayed timing.

I knew if I finished that day without my period I would reach a 33day cycle. And I did.on Friday morning I had an appointment at a alt-massage guys place to have an ionic cleans (foot thing, it’s weird. will also explain later....)

I started feeling too much pain while there but I thought it was perhaps just how I was sitting adding to pain.

It wasn’t.

I had actually eaten breakfast, so no issues with taking the anti-inflammatory my pain doc had prescribed the moment I got to my parents, but the pain just kept mounting. soon I realized my period had started (this is Friday) and pain is so bad I can barley move, and am to nauseated due to pain to eat.

After the day of pain, by 6pm I decided I couldn’t take the pain anymore, and my mom was home so asking to go to the hospital was an option without meaning scot had to stop working. So off we went.
Later he met me and my mom there and eventually I got in. and life improved once in a bed to start with rather than the wheel chair (could barely walk).

I was given a shot of dilaudid in my belly, only took a little pain away but left me nauseated extreme. Then a shot of graval that slowly helped with nausea, and then another shot of dilaudid.

By the time we got out of there it was 3:10am. Made me wish I could have been able to give Scott’s sister an answer when she called and ended up asking us "well when you are leaving (the ER)" well... were in the waiting room, it’s not yet 10pm, I WISH we knew, and I WISH it was soon. But come-on.... it’s the ER and since I am not visually gushing blood, or a child I am taken last.

The ER doctor gave me a prescription for pain meds, which are not Demerol so does not interfere with my getting off Demerol. (yay) and perhaps this will make it clear to my pain doc, that my period is my WORST time, and yes he has been given me to help me with my chronic pain, however as bad as it is, being all the time, my worst pain is on my period. Yet his advice for me was take a Midol. Hopefully can get something from the hospital, or can explain clearly to him what happened so he can start to be realistic for that, if not I will be hunting for another referral to another pain doc I have been told about, that has treated persons with my condition!
