| | Refusing to believe its IBS
Hi, I am 34yr old and been with my husband for 14 years. Im wondering if anyone could give me some advice please,
My problems started December 2009, with lower back pain/burning, I was diagnosed with cystitis, then a week later a kidney infection, I doubted this! To cut a long story short, since then ive had this constant discomfort in my back, worse on some days, I have also been treated for several womb infections, and ive also had heavy bleeds after intercourse, and lot of discharge, sometimes pink, sometimes brown almost black.
When at its worst, sitting walking and driving is very uncomfortable. Ive had an ultrasound and transvaginal, which only revealed Polycystic ovaries (GP told me this would not warrent my symptoms).
I have been rather anxious,especially due to breast cancer being in my family, and therefore had a private appointment today, as Ive waited 2 months for appointment on nhs, but I am so disappointed after seeing the Gynacologist today, as I feel she did not to a good job reassuring me that its nothing sinister, she felt as I have been anxious and under a lot of stress that this can mess with my periods. She stressed that she thinks i have IBS, but im not at all convinced, she based this on 2 bouts of diarreah I have had in 4 months.
I am still very worried as I KNOW that something is not right with my female regions, but feel no nearer to knowing what, and im just not sure who to turn to now, ive seen my GP about 10 times in the last 4 months as my symptoms got so bad, now i have seen the gynacologist and im not satisfied with being told its IBS.......I have bled heavily about 5 times after sex, this cannot be IBS, I would be so greatful for any replies or Ideas on what I should do next. Thanks in advance
