Yesterday I got my period after 18 days late. The pain was terrible, it felt like someone trying to rip my uterus out of my body. I haven’t feel this kind of pain for quite awhile. Yes, I cried. I suspected jogging as the culprit.
I tried to make rice noodle for lunch, the pain was escalating so fast. I felt heavy cramps and I felt that I was going to passed out, I had cold sweats. It was terrible 😖
My husband came home from work around 5pm, I was curling on the couch. He said, “You look terrible, are you in pain?”. Yes, I was in so much pain!
I couldn’t sleep well last night. I took 1 x 200mg liquid ibuprofen around 11:30pm. But it didn’t touch the pain at all. I cried again, frustrated. The pain stayed until around 3am, I couldn’t sleep. I was watching a comedy tv show, but couldn’t distract my brain from my pain. And then I remember about massaging certain spot on my leg that might help with the pain.
I massaged that spot on my left leg, omg it was so painful! I kept doing it for about 15 minutes, I noticed that the pain had lessen. I felt relieved 😌 I massaged my right leg too, it wasn’t as painful as my left side. I was doing it until I fell asleep. Why didn’t I do it earlier? 😅 I really have problem to remember things that useful for my condition 😬
This is my left leg this morning, do you see the bruise? Yes, it’s worthy! 😆
Still about period.
My period started 8 days ago. I started to feel pain one day before. And today, even though the bleeding has stopped couple days ago, I still feeling pain. I couldn’t sleep last night because I felt back and rectal pain around 2am. I stayed awake until 5am. Now I feel very sleepy but I couldn’t sleep. All of the food that I ate today taste weird for me. Something is happening in my body, I just don’t know what…
In general I feel angry, frustrated, impatient, and tired in my current cycle. I’m loosing my excitement to heal from this stupid condition, I just feel tired.
It’s 2am. I woke up few minutes ago because I started to feel pain. Lower abdomen cramps 3/10, lower back pain 3/10. I knew it will escalate soon if I didn’t take ibuprofen. I started to feel nauseous and the pain from my lower back goes to my right leg.
Next time when you want to drink green tea latte, remember this moment, remember this PAIN!
It’s 3:45 am. I have been waking up since 2 am. I’m in pain, back pain and lower abdomen pain. Even a level 4 pain could feel so painful in the middle of the night like this. I just took an ibuprofen. I still need to wait until it’s reacting so I can go back to sleep. Meanwhile I will try to manage the pain as much as possible 😔
I’m still awake. The pain has been decreasing a little.
Josh Groban and Linkin Park are singing for me 🎶
My hot water bags are comforting me 🙏🏼
My cat woke up for awhile accompanied me. My husband woke up for a sec, rubbed my belly and then hold my hand while went back to sleep.
Although I’m in pain, I still have things to be grateful for.
Life is good.
The pain down to 2/10.
I’m feeling sleepy, that’s good.. I think I will fall asleep soon. Just need to warming up one of my water bag one more time.
Good night… or… good morning…
Total ibuprofen taken: 1
Symptoms: Heavy bleeding, Back pain (2-4/10), Lower abdomen pain (1/10)
Last cycle I took 4×200 mg ibuprofen on day 2. I had heavy bleeding, back pain (2-3/10), cramps (4-5/10), and nauseous.
I’m down from 4 to 1 ibuprofen. For me that’s a miracle! The endo diet works, the Ayurvedic medicines and supplements work. I’m very grateful!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Total ibuprofen taken: 0
I decided to make my swelly belly picture as an art piece 😆😆😆
Period day 1 was quite easy. Other than my swelly belly, nothing really obvious happened. I had lower back pain (1/10) and lower abdomen pain (1/10). No ibuprofen taken. I toughened it up!
Last cycle I took 1 ibuprofen on day 1. A good progress 😊
