Anybody w/these symptoms??

I've been battling extremely heavy periods for a couple of years now; lots and lots of clotting/cramping, and I know from a abdominal pelvic ultrasound from last year I have cysts on my ovaries. The past two cycles I've had extreme pain--shooting, razor-tearing type of pain in the rectum area--what's up with this?!? It was excruciating--I almost called 9-1-1, but it went away after I laid down for about an hour with a hot heating pad. I had a recheck on May 25 with another ultrasound and also a vaginal ultrasound, but I haven't received a letter or anything and I couldn't get another appt. until the beginning of August to discuss the results! These intermittent shooting pains in the rectum are uncomfortable and I'm worried I'll get another really, really bad attack while I'm driving with the kids or something. Anyone else had this and what WAS it??? TIA

Sounds pretty rough! If it is anything like what I experience, mine is IBS coupled with endo on my bowel walls. The pain can be horrendous and is the worst pain I believe I have ever had in my life. Thankfully, it has slowed way down and at the most has only lasted a few minutes per episode, although I have had several episodes in a row. It can totally take my breath away.

Talk to your dr about how to deal with your pain. If need be, see your GP. My GYN sent me back to my GP to be referred to a Gastro to eliminate any other bowel/gasto issues. She performed an exam, had me have CTs and a colonoscopy. As all those were clear, she is treating me for IBS and my GYN is monitoring my endo.

The biggest help for me so far as been a change in diet.

in there and do call your dr if you pain continues. You need to know what to do to get some relief.
