Last March, I thought I was having a gallbladder attack or something and after numerous tests in the ER, it was an ulcer from taking so much Advil. After quitting, I had no more ulcer, but lots of pain, tylonol doesn't take the inflammation away. After PT, acupuncture, chiro, MRI, and now at pain management on opiates. Meanwhile, I got my once a year herniated disk in the lumbar area and this time it never went away and here comes the sciatica. I ask doctor at pain management if it was normal for my lower back to be in such excruciating pain during period. She says it shouldn't. After, having an epideral steroid shot I get got my period early(coincendently?) and it lasted 30 days till I went to gyno and got on progesterone. Ruled out uterine cancer and have 7cm fibroid with multiple others. The pelvic symptoms because of the fibroids make a lot of sense now. I have stopped bleeding and have chosen to get laproscopic hysto. I'm 47 and work at a restaurant 4 hours a day on my feet at a pretty fast pace and I'm really getting weak in the back and legs. My surgery is March 19. Nobody wants to tell me that back pain will go away, but I hope this is the solution. Being on the opiates is getting real old and challenging, I have 23 years clean and sober, and besides all this pain and annoyance, I am having to be careful of slipping into a past I never want to see again. I have a very supportive husband and group that helps, very grateful to have found this forum for more support.
Stay strong! Your pain will go away after surgery. I believe that all this internal "stuff" fibroids, etc. can effect your back which in turn will travel.
If I were you, I'd try to ease off the opiates slowly. I know it's hard. The pain can be debilitating. Hang in there!
