After over a year now I've come online to see if someone can help me as I begin to wonder is it all in my head?
Symptoms first begun with pain during sex and bleeding between periods, it felt like something was being hit deep inside causing pain that can travel up into the abdomen. As the months progressed common occurrence includes pain in my pelvis travelling into my stomach area, Cramping after sex and random cramps in abdomen causing extreme pain to the point I cannot move. Also have pain with my bowel movements on occasions. Along with these symptoms I feel extremely tired, breathless, faint/dizzy/pressure in my head when I stand, my whole body just feels exhausted sometimes and I havent even done anything.
Earlier in the year I found I was anaemic (I am also vegetarian fof 8 years) and after recovering a little the tiredness etc has returned and assumed it was my iron levels again but found out today that they are ok at a level of 25.
Over this year I have lost around 1stone and abit, I have not dieted and I havent exercised in around 2 years! I eat alot and when I think ive put on weight, I lose it! Now weighing 8st, I question whether this is right as people instantly comment about how much weight ive lost which makes me even more paranoid.
These symptoms seem to flare up when they feel like it, ive recently had a "good month" where it does not happen all the time but this week it has begun again.
During this year I have had a smear, pelvic ultrasound and recently seen the gynaecologist who thinks it could be IBS, strange I thought because these symptoms are not related to meals and I didnt experience alot of bloating. Could this by right?
Could the coil have this affect? However if it could I didnt experience symptoms for two years previously.
Sorry for how long this is, I really dont know what to do
