not sure what I expect from this thread but need to write it down and maybe someone here can point me in the right direction...

Main issues are in second 1/2 of my cycle I get very bad lower back pain which radiates into the legs, them resulting in 'cutting out' and I have to sit down. Or on one occassion I couldn't get up from the sofa. And also abdonimal pains/cramps particularly second 1/2 of cycle and during/after intercourse - e.g. yesterday had to stop dh as I cramped 1/2 way through and had to take 800mg Iboprofen to be able to sleep! (sorry if tmi)

After months of going to the GP I finally got referred to Gyn as it's cyclical. Gyn felt a 'lump' when doing internal so was booked for laparascopic investigation (5 months wait!!!). Found a cyst but didn't do anything about it as cysts don't hurt (wtf???) and it was only 6cm. Was booked for another Ultrasound (4 months down the line) and the cyst is gone...

Any smears came back negative so no infection etc.

Have had 2 c-sections (last one 20 months ago) but doc says that shouldn't be an issue.

Went back after last US to see gyn and basically she said 'can't find anything (no trace of endimitrisis either) have you tried painkillers' a given obvsiously and yes they work, but that's not a solution to pop painkillers like smarties for the remainder of my life?!?

Anybody on here had similar experience and if so what did you do to get it under control?

Thanks for reading my rant
