Severe pain before period

Hi everyone. I am 26 years old and the last two months I have had severe lower back pain and nausea the day before my period. The pain is so severe that I cannot function just lay in the bed and hope it stops. Over the counter meds do not help. I went to the doctor the first time it happened and I was given nausea medicine and Percocet. The percocet helped to dull the pain until it went away when my period ended. I have had an untrasound and kidney stones and gallstones were ruled out. I am on birth control to regulate my periods and I am due to start next week and I am dreading it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to proceed to figure this problem out. Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Severe pain before period

Endometriosis pops into my mind when I read your post. Please ask your doctor to rule it out as soon as possible. Especially since the pain leaves you disabled several times per month. Endometriosis are cells that escape from your uterus into your abdomen, causing severe pain, as blood is trapped inside you, with no escape. Severe pain around or with your period is one distinct symptom.

I was just diagnosed after years of suffering without a diagnosis. I wouldn't want that to happen to anyone else. Like anything else, finding out out fast is always best.

I agree. That was happening to me to. I had to have a laproscopic procedure to find out, but i was glad i did.
