Hi, This is my first post here, and i have no expereince with this site, so i hope posting this as a new thread is okay!
Female, aged 26.
I had a child Oct 3rd 2013, during pregnancy i had gallstones which where removed this January by keyhole surgery - recovery was fine.
For the past 4 months my stomach has been extrememly swollen.. (Constantly. Food, passing wind, and poop doesnt change this) it is alsovery tender. Its not just my lower stomach, its ALL over, and it starts at my bottom rib.
Alongside with this Ive been suffering with pain in my lower back (coccyx), a pressure feeling quite simular to when i was pregnant.
With these symptoms, I have also been suffering from EXTREME fatgue.. I cant get out of bed. My husband has to force me, and even after 12 hours sleep i am exhausted and can hardelly find any enegery to make it down the stairs.
Another symptom which has been since around 4 months is i have no feeling during sex.. nothing at all. Its completely numb. Other areas are fine, just inside.
I have been going to the doctors with this, but every time its a different diagnosis which doesnt treat anyting at all. The most recently drs visit said It was Pelvic inflammatory diseas, and prescribed me antibiotics. though he did not feel my stomach, nor did he do any other tests - he made me do a vaginal swab to be sent off but no results yet.
As you can imagine, I'm not feeling too well at all. I have a 1 year old son who needs his mummy, and i just have no strength, in constant pain. My depression and anxiety has come back ten fold from this.
Does anyone have ANY ideas?? I am absolutely so fed up with all this back and forthing with my drs and not getting anything done, while the whole time my symptoms are getting worse - my stomach is so swollen now that i cant wear buttons trousers, and i feel so uncomfortable its unreal. (100% not pregnant btw!)
thank you for reading.. .x
