The last few years I have had extreme cramping (keeps me up at night until I over medicated) and heavy bleeding accompianed by fatigue and a period that lasts 5 to 7 days. It stops for a day or two and then returns for another day. At the begining of this month I became ill. I had blood in my stool, I noticied I put on over 20lbs in a short period of time (now it looks like I am pregnant) and I had cramps that spread to my knees. Went to the dr and was set up for an ultrasound of my adominal organs and a pelvic. Also a transvaginal was done. The symptoms persisted and when I went to the next appointment she informed me that my endo lining was 3 inches thick and my uterus was enlarged. I also have cysts on both ovaries. At this point they are saying those are functional. The next week I started my period which ran for 4 days. Same symptoms, same pains. I ended up at the ER because the bleeding was severly heavy. They repeated the ultrasound with measurements of 9.5 cm x 5.4 cm x 5.4 and the lining was 5.6 mm they also noted one of the cysts to be complex and 1.5 cm.
Returned for follow up ultrasound and now awaiting results. I also need to add that I have not had a regular stool in sometime even with the softners that have been reccomended by the dr. Am I crazy or is something going on here?
