We are tired this morning, my uterus and I.
I'd been enjoying a fairly mild visit from AF, which was a little odd, usually my cramps are worse. But I only took advil once yesterday, CD2 - normally my most crampy day. And I foolishly assumed I was home free this month.
Then last night I woke up at 2:00 a.m. with excruciating cramps that kept me up for almost two hours before they started fading, even after taking ad.vil and tyl.enol. Poor hubs tried to stay awake with me, but he's an insomniac and the sleeping pills are hard to fight. This morning I feel almost fine. My abdomen feels tender and I'm exhausted of course, but thankfully no cramps at this point.
The feeling that endo is involved is nagging at me more and more. Seems like I get horrendous cramps every two to three months now, whereas for the first couple years after I came off the pill I'd only get a really bad period a couple times a year. Before that it was excruciating more often than not. Last night I noticed the pain wasn't solely in my uterus either, it almost felt like it was vaginal/rectal as well. And it wasn't just achey, dull pain, it felt like stabbing and burning.
So, I think I have decided to wait another month or so, until we're finished TAB, to bring it up to my doctor. I will try to get him to order a lap based on the pain, once I find out whether my insurance will even cover it of course.
I know endo is a tricky beast and no one is the same, but I have to ask you ladies that have it, would you think that's what this sounds like? Or does it sound like "normal" AF behavior?
