    Default Pain management

    I use Voltatin rapid (pre scription dose), Naprosen 1000 also prescribed but only thing that seems to work!

    I've had Grade 5 endo for more than 10 years, so here are all my tips - hope these will help someone else.
    • Prescription strength naprosen is great because it is anti-inflammatory and it doesn't make you drowsy, so if the pain settles, you can go to work, drive etc. Take after food.
    • If pain is really bad and you will be at home in bed anyway, my surgeon prescribes Endone and Tramadol. These are super strong. I hate them because they make me so woozy but sometimes it's the only thing that will touch the pain. If you take these, your day is a write-off.
    • Once my doctor gave me a morphine injection when the pain was so bad that even Tramadol didn't help.
    • I really recommend a healthy diet, keeping fit, lots of fibre to avoid constipation, warm water and tea (never cold drinks), heat packs, and also I think that reformer pilates to strengthen your core and your pelvic floor helps.
    • I had the Mirena for 4 years and loved it. Had nearly no symptoms while it was in as I never got a real period, just spotting. 2 months after the Mirena was out, my endo was back

    I have been continuously pregnant for the past few years so haven't had many bad pains but If the pain is really bad I take endones otherwise panadeine forte or over the counter mersendols are also really good.

    Default Pain management

    My mirena made my pain worse, I started losing tissue like clots too.
    I take Nurofen Plus with panadol (within an hour), have hot showers and use a gel heat pack. The wheat ones do work better though.

    I'm really not looking forward to getting my period back after this little one. I have PCOS too and was told pregnancy can cure them but it definitely got worse after the girls.

    Default Re: Pain management

    I've not been officially diagnosed but "likely have endo". For the past few years I've been taking ponstanfor 5 days before I'm due, and then a combination of ponstan, tramedol and panadol plus. I only need it for a couple of the days, but I also use a heat pad in that time.
