I went to the ER because for the past week I have had strange symptoms. I have been constipated many times before but nothing like this. I'm not really bloated and I am going to the bathroom but it's 3 or 4 small pellets at a time and as soon as I get done, there's a pressure to go again.
I was having pain in my lower back, side-all the way up under my ribs, sometimes the pain gravitated towards the other side and middle of my back, I was having dull cramping in my pelvis and some minor pain in my vagina. I never once considered constipation because I didn't think it caused trouble in all those areas. I put up with this over a week, at one point I had pain in my legs even! This only lasted for a day though. Also, I wiped and had light pink blood followed by stringy pink discharge a few days later. I am not pregnant and I am on the depo shot.
I did lots of research online as I have never had anything like this before. and after symptom checkers everything said endo. I am 24 years old and prior to depo I used to get irregular, heavy periods with awful cramps. I was on the birth control pill but that sent my body in a tizzy.
So after my ER visit today they pressed on my belly, which hurt in some spots mostly the left side and they sent me for a CT scan. Apparently the CT came back clear, just showed bad constipation. I don't know much about endometriosis but after lots of my research is it possible I could have this since I have had many of the symptoms? I think I read somewhere that endo can cause constipation. Before this happened, I was going pretty regularly. I eat a fiber yogurt everyday and drink plenty of water.
