(993 Posts)

I have had horrible pains all day..... they feel like periiod pains. As the day has progressed they have been getting worse and worse.

Nurofen isnt touching it. Im totally exhausted by it and just want to sleep. Im sat here crying because I dont know what to do. I took painkillers nearly an hour ago anf they just arent working and I just want to sleep.

Big hugs to SC, so sorry you had to go through all this.

I am so touched and shocked at the community on MN, have been member for ages but only been hanging out in threads for a few months.

You are all brill. So toucheed by your care.

lewis contribution on its way too.

I did not know half of these symptoms and definately agree an awareness campaign needs to be launched.

I have to go out again shortly (toddlers) - hopefully there'll be some sort of update by the time I get back.

Just getting in before the thread fills up completely. katz is right, is there a new one yet?

SpookyCharlotte I've been following what has happened to you since Wednesday with increasing horror and concern. So sorry that you've been through a terrible time, you poor thing, thank goodness you had the sense to take advice from the brilliant women of MN. Get well soon and do get your sister or mum to ask someone from your course to update your tutors and get everything straight for a long extension on your outstanding work. Thinking of you.

Has anyone started a new thread? If not I can start one.

I'll keep it in chat and then Charlotte can decide whether to have it moved or let it disappear. And link to both.

I am having trouble with my eyes at the moment so can't scan the thread. Can someone tell me what happened in the end with SC please?

I have been following this thread since Monday, but didn't feel able to post as I have no experience of EP.

I have absolutely no money but would love to contribute. Do you think there would be a need for a second collection? I get paid next Friday and only have £2 to last me to then. If a second collection happens, I would love to donate whatever I can.

I am so sorry for your loss Charlotte and for the terrible way you were treated. Thank goodness for MN and everyone here who helped you through it. Wishing you a very speedy recovery.

Fab I've put a summary on the new thread if that helps smile

Thanks Just.

Have paypalled. Glad everyone is up for a campaign. This sort of misdiagnosis of eps is so common and it really SHOULDN'T BE.

To SC - this might not help or be relevant, but just in case it is ... Although your fertility is reduced through having one tube removed, it's not halved. The gyno explained to me that fallopian tubes aren't static, and one can sort of nip over to the ovary on the other side and catch <layman's terms>

Only just caught up with this. Shocking.

I am glad SC is now, eventually, getting the treatment she needs.

Have noted PP account and will sort later when back home.

Hi, I'm a journalist for the Telegraph and very keen to get in touch with SC to talk about her experiences - both with the brilliant MNs and also with the NHS. If anyone could pass on my contact details to her I'm on 02079312496. My email address is laura.roberts@telegraph.co.uk Or she can contact me on here. It seems as though mumsnet came to the rescue yet again! Well done all.

laura you may want to look at the next thread. Your message may not be seen here.

lauraroberts Fri 23-Apr-10 10:10:15

also - if anyone else has been diagnosed or helped through mumsnet regarding a medical problem please do get in touch.

Would it be appropriate to nominate this thread for Classics? It'll vanish from chat soon.

supersalstrawberry Fri 23-Apr-10 19:19:23

bloody hell, just caught up, Charlotte sorry to hear you've had such an awful time, take care and get well soon.

well done to all those who supported Charlotte and pushed her to go back and get treated, MN at its best smile

IMoveTheStars Fri 23-Apr-10 23:15:04

good, at least it won't vanish grin]

Charlotte - I hope you feel better very very soon, so glad you posted on MN.
