 Someone Please Help!

Iam very concerned about my health and at my wits end!

Warning! This is a little gross
This all started for me last Febuary. I got my period, like any other
time the first day wasnt too heavy. started getting cramps that night
before bed and took some asprine ( it was all i had in the house).
slept with a tampon in and woke the next day with {*filter*} everywhere! i
thought this was strange, but figured the asprin thinned my {*filter*}, no
big deal.  a few days later i started feeling light-headed and dizzy.
had sharp pains in my stomach and vomiting. this was the beginning of
my hell. since then on a my symptoms have included: severe lower back
pain, going into a sciatic thing frequently,sharp pains in my
legs,dizzy lightheaded feeling, diarrhea, severe indigestion. and a
extremely heavy periods which last only about 2 days and then come
back bright red {*filter*}!
when the bleeding starts up again all my symptoms kick in with full
force.
Iam incredibly afraid i have some type of gynocological cancer. i have
also lost a ton of weight. All i've been doing since Febuary is going
to doctors. I have had the following tests done since then: 2
trans{*filter*}l sonograms, 2 lower back x-rays, abdominal and pelvic cat
scan, GI series, colonoscopy, a camara down my throat(don't remember
the name of that one), hysteroscopy with a D&C, uterine biopsy,
lapascopic exploratory, thyroiod test, cbc {*filter*} work. everything
comes back normal. When doing the lap my gyno found some
endometriosis, thats the only thing they have found. could that
possibly be causing all of this pain? chronic serious pain?.Is it
possible a D&C could miss cancer? Someone please help!! I am 33 years
old and I want my life back.

It sounds like you've had a lot of complicated tests done so I wouldn't
imagine the doctors would miss something relatively simple like toxic shock
syndrome, but have you been tested for that?  Your symptoms sound a little
bit like it:

"Symptoms of TSS occur suddenly: a high fever (102 F, 38.8 C or higher),
vomiting, diarrhea, a sunburn-like rash, red eyes, dizziness,
lightheadedness, muscle aches, and drops in {*filter*} pressure, which may cause
fainting. The infection can cause shock, kidney and liver failure. These
symptoms require prompt medical evaluation."

You can read more about it by doing a search on the internet.

Good luck!

I thought the curse of toxic shock syndrome was a little shorter than 10
months (the symptoms began in February).

All the best,

Wyle

hello "curlyg2000"
I came to this group, just a few minutes ago (actualy to get help!), and am
not medical but I may be able to help because of experience.
I am 49 and have had diagnosed endometriosis for twenty seven years.
Believe me, endometriosis can do all you describe and much more.  Have you
had children yet?  If so a hysterectomy may sound drastic but it does make a
hell of a difference.  I was lucky and had mine at twenty two years old
after having my two children (plus a few miscarraiges).  I also have cancer
now, as they left my ovaries due to my age, but this is (apparently)
unrelated.  I will be posting my questions on this site in the hope of help
for my G.I. tract adenocarcinoma,  which I know very little about, but I am
an expert at endometriosis!!!!
I would be glad to speak to you via email if this is posible for you.  I am
in the U.K. so the phone is probably not an option.  my email is -
