I Have The Most Severe Pain At Night To The Point I Can't Sleep And Nothing Helps. Is This Common?

I Have The Most Severe Pain At Night To The Point I Can't Sleep And Nothing Helps. Is This Common?

I was recently taken off the depo shot 6 months ago and put on a birth control that you take blue pills 3 months straight and the sugar pills for one week at the end of the cycle. Not sure if I should go back to the doctor and discuss different treatment or not because last time I went, my doctor told me surgery would be the other option. I am trying not to go that route, but the pain gets almost unbearable.

I too have been having this. Pelvic pain is worse at night when I’ve been laying down for hours as well as aches in my arms and legs! Wakes me up from sleep and keeps me up for a few hours. It’s the worst! I also have it when I’m not on my period, but i do feel it slowly start to build over a few nights until the pain is unbearable! Not sure if it common/normal, but I have it too. Makes me exhausted the next day!
