Woke up from my migraine coma to horrendous pelvic pain and even though my periods are shut down, and have been for years, some break through spotting. Which has my endometriosis flaring, my migraines flaring, and my IC flaring at near full force.
My chronic pain specialist was supposed to get me back in touch with my chronic pelvic pain specialist but now I am going to be insisting on it in the morning.
Really wish I could go to the ER for a shot, but I do not want a late nate pelvic CT, ultrasound, pelvic and general party in my pants only to be told that I have pain maintenance medication at home and the ER is not for pain management. And yes, I get that a lot before getting bumped back out on the street with out any sort of help at all, but an extremely high exposure to radiation.
But I feel like my uterus is trying to walk out with my bladder, and my head is still not recovered from the migraine which was obviously the warning of things to come.
Tough call. Just took evening morphine and no fully medicated yet. Also have percocet on hand for breakthrough pain. I think my game plan at the moment is this. Lavender Epsom salt bath soak while morphine kicks in and boyfriend cooks me something tasty to eat as I've been comatose for hours. Eat, take check of pain levels, take percocet if needed for minor lingering pain. If still in bad pain head to ER well fed and in warm, comfy clothes for the long haul.
