    Severe menstrual cramping with Fibromyalgia.

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the community, and really hope someone can help me on this subject because I can't take this pain anymore. 2 years I started to have really bad pain when it came time to ovulate and would stop after my period ended. Everything I was able to research had me thinking I had endometriosis. I went to my gyno and told them what was going on and they did a bunch of tests plus a exploratory surgery to check for endo. Nothing came back. I was told it was probably IBS.
    Now, if it was IBS, I think the flareups would be at all different times. Not the dame time every month. Also the painhurts like contractions. It's not belly pain. It's uterine pain.
    To top it off, my husband jokes sexually all the time and he just doesn't understand how painful it is. I just want to break down and cry.
    Also in case anyone needs to know, I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Extreme Fatigue after I did tons of research trying to find answers that doctors couldn't. I would say most of my symptoms started 3 years ago.
    Thanks, and much love to all of you who have this terrible illness. May you all find a way to ease your pain and live wonderful lives.
