Okay, I'm hoping to keep this short. I have been to the doctor and I'm waiting for an ultrasound, but that's not until June.
Since last June, my mentraual cycles have been getting shorter but my cramps have been getting worse and worse. In December my doctor told me my ferritin was 8 (normal level 12-300). By the time I went back to get bloodwork done again, I had a period that was mainly clots. Small ones, but I had never passed clots before. He told me that wasn't too significant but come back if it got worse next month.
About a week before my next period, I got really sick. Epigastric pain that was generalized, every time I ate I got sick (ended up only when I ate fatty foods and in the mid epigastric area), got diarrhea, etc. Couldn't think of what was wrong, someone suggested gall stones. But then I started passing clots the size of toonies (for you Americans, it's a large $2 coin).
But now when I have the pain, it's in the areao f my pancreas. But what's wierd is that after I'm sick for about a day (I get nauseus as well...it's a stabbing pain that goes away but comes and goes for about a day), I have frequent loose bowel movements for the next 2-3 days...this does not sound like gall stones. Then someone suggested endometriosis...
What is your opinion?
