Abdominal pain / menstrual worsening

Mar 18, 2017 6:40 PM

Is it my age, the 4 c-sections w/ scar tissue, the medicine I'm taking all contributing to the massive increase in my menstrual cramps getting really bad? I'm dehydrated too so I downloaded this new app w/ hourly reminders to drink water. Hope it helps. I drink the bear minimum amount of water. If I stock upvon Smart or Fuji water even my water intake would be much better. Just wondering if I'm normal or oddly the only one experiencing rhis 😩

Menstrual pain with fiibro is so debilitating. I don't whether age plays a role. I'm 25 but never had a baby, but when I'm on the pain is excruciating. Baths and showers help as well as ibuprofen gel targeting the area quickly. But the best pain relief I can recommend is cannabis and exercise.

I cant do cannabis. I have my meds and really want to go sit in the hot tub

Honestly, I had to get a hysterectomy at 29 because of the pain. I couldn't hold a job because of it. The only meds that ever helped me were taken off of the market. I used to use a blow dryer and heating pad to help with pain. I also knocked myself out to sleep through it.

I am wondering if when I will need a hysterectomy. Why did you have to have it if it isn't too personal amccallister?
