Hi everyone... I am also having similar symptoms as you all but what's different in me is that I am only 17. Ive been having this for over 5 years now, maybe up to 7 and I am SCARED I will have this for the rest of my life. I do not drink at all either, never even tried it. And I don't smoke. I've been to doctors and I've done tests, some tell me it's a urine infection and most tell me it's just gas.

I have this pain at least once a month. I have this excruciating pain on the left side of my waist all the way to my back. I can't lay down and take heavy breaths. The pain usually lasts 3-4 days. I can't sleep at night since whenever I lay down, the pain gets 100000x worse. Once the paid got so bad, I took a long piece of cloth and tied it around my waist really really tight. I just needed a tiny bit of relief. Rubbing my waist helps but I can't do that all night can I? I take Panadol in hopes it'll help, but it does nothing. Someone told me it might be psychological but how can it??

PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME

Im still so young and I'm terrified for my future.

I'm fed up and I can't do this anymore, I just want to know what's going on in my body so that I treat it!!!!

      6-7 yeas ago too, but I don't always get this pain before my period.

      I'm having this pain right at this moment and my periods ended yesterday.

      I'm so fed up because my doctors can't figure out what's wrong with me.

      I can't sleep, I can't lay in bed and rest! I can't sit and not keep on moving my back and stretching it so that I don't feel the pain.

      Please tell me what's wrong with me, I'm so scared yet so done with this. And I'm tired of going to the doctor
