Internal Pain??
lysadestkirra posted:
I've had severe dull achy pain from my hips to my ribcage all the way around. Tummy, back & both sides. It's been non-stop for 2 days now without letting up. It hurts to eat, take a deep breath, cough, sit, lay, walk, everything causes sharp pains. I'm in tears cuz I just can't stand it anymore.

5 years ago, I had a laporoscopy done for suspected endometrosis. All they found was that my bowels were tied up with scar tissue & pinned down where they shouldn't be. Scar tissue was removed & life went on as normal, until recently.

My BM's have went from twice a week & firm ( which is completely normal my whole life) to 3-4 times a day, really soft and loose. Going to the restroom hurts. Intiamacy with my husband hurts. All these symptoms have been going on for about 2 months now. Most of the time its a little uncomfortable but, not painful.

I am 28 years old, have 6 kids. My youngest is almost 5. I've have no diagnosed medical problems and take no medications. I have no insurance so, am very hesitant in seeking a doctor. Especially since I have no idea what kind of doc I need. Is it bowels? galbladder? endometrosis? What? It hurts so much! Please... any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Considering your past situation, bowels does seem most likely. But there is no way to know for sure.

Before the current episodes, did you do anything to attempt to increase your twice a week BM? (That is just barely on the normal range.) Have you tried any changes in diet to see whether that has any impact?
