Anyone have to be on painkillers for extensive periods of time?

Anyone have to be on painkillers for extensive periods of time?

I have been taking vicodin pretty regularly since November of 2016, prescribed by my doctor of course. She warned me about depends and addiction but when it comes to being in horrible deep pain everyday that nothing else touches it seemed completely worth the risk. Specailly since i have been dealing with the constant pain for years. Just to not have to be in pain or at least less pain for a little while. Specially when IT comes to the monthly… read more

Has anyone tried TCM/Acupuncture for Endo & Adenomyosis?

Has anyone tried TCM/Acupuncture for Endo & Adenomyosis?

My Obgyn has only prescribed pain pills- Vicodin and Percocet for my pelvic pains. I'm thinking about alternative medicine. I've heard Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help with my Endometriosis and Adenomyosis. But I haven't heard any stories specifically linked with endo or adeno.

Stage 1 endo and birth control

Stage 1 endo and birth control

I was diagnosed with endo about a year ago, had a lap and had minimal endo tissue removed. Since then I’ve been on loloestrin continuously but my pain has not changed. I get terrible lower left side pelvic pain (usually later in the day) which also makes my stomach puff up and I look pregnant. It also radiates to my back. The pain is so bad sometimes I have to take Vicodin (which I don’t like taking) and it still doesn’t go away. Usually only goes away after a nights sleep. I also… read more

Does anyone find it hard to think and speak when you're in pain?

Does anyone find it hard to think and speak when you're in pain?

I've had intense pain since the start, but I was used to having really intense fare ups that would last for a day or two and then I would recover. As I've gotten older I've noticed that I'll have a constant level of lesser pain everyday but it'll go on for weeks and I won't be able to think. It's like all my brain can do to tell me you're in pain, you're in pain, you're exhausted, go home; but I won't be able to think about much else. I'm really… read more

Well pain causes fatigue, fatigue causes brain fog. It's a vicious cycle. You're in pain so you don't sleep, you wake up tired so you can't think… read more
