Hi guys, I'm new on here but looking for some advice cos I feel like pulling my hair out.
I been diagnosed with CPS since August 2012. but been living with CPS after a motorbike accident 3 and bit years ago... I went through epidural injections that nearly killed me , never known pain like it, through to pregaballin. I went cold turkey on all my other meds and found pregaballin does control the pain better than every thing else. But still on tramadol and use Lidocaine medicated plasters which really are life saving when that pain hit 10 and above.
My problem is my hormones, and the monthly cycle , two week in when i ovulate the pain starts going through the roof and my head is hell. It goes from that niggle, balance off ,concentration gone with brain just on auto pilot. I cant handle light, or noise to the point it feels like its going to explode.
The degree of this through out the day and following two weeks increases nearer to my come on date. The degree of extra pain I suffer from a day to day basis increases and the combination of my head and pain results in me taking to my bed cos the only thing I can do is.I have seen my doctor and changed me from the mini pill to the combination pill which has made the situation even worse. I'm at the end of my tether college this year is proving nearly impossible. So my question is anybody else have this problem? I up my pregabllian but by the end of the 2 week it don't help.
If I can keep my hormone level constant I can cope on the meds and pain relief.
I'm seriously asking my doc for a hysterectomy cos then I will me on a controlled hormone level.. It really is a matter of quality of life and at the min I don't have it.
Does any one else feel the same or had it done?
Has any lady with a hysterectomy managed to keep their hormone level constant and noticed a difference?
Any advice would be very much appreciated Bcletjog.... Thank you..
