Hopefully someone can relate or help: I am 43 years old with "normal" periods. They last about 6 days, 2-3 days heavy bleeding, the rest light to normal bleeding. During my periods for the past few months, I have had extremely harsh cramps, bloating with a hard stomach/abdomen, flips between constipation and diarrhea (can get into gross details if helpful), extra gas, abdominal pain mostly on the right side to the point you can't touch the area right by the inside of the hip bone (acutally went to urgent care thinking I was having an appendicitis) and to the point that I can't walk right. I'm bent over shuffling along. I went to my obgyn and he has done ultrasounds and recently an MRI. I was diagnosed with numerous fibroid tumors, a few degenerating. He said nothing will help with surgery because that is the exteme scenario, just take pain meds. Being a smoker (even though cut way down because I'm trying to quit) the pill is out. I'm really not a pill taker so 4 hour doses of motrin or whatever isn't ideal, I rather have a firm answer on what is causing this horrific pain and what would be the fastest and easiest solution to removal it all. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!
