I'm going to a new doctor next year but I'm convinced my current doctor does not believe me about my pain. I think she thought I was just trying to get pain pills or something. I have sharp pain in my right ovary. It seems to effect my sciatic nerve as when I get cramps in it, the pain shoots down my right leg and I feel it in the bottom of my foot. It barely responds to over the counter painkillers. I once took 1600 mg of ibuprofen in throughout one day so I could go to work. The thing is, it typically only acts up every time I have a period and sometimes randomly. My gyno's solution was "just stop having periods then" so that's been what I'm doing. However I need to have about 4-5 periods each year to prevent breakthrough bleeding and side effects. So when I have my break week, my side flares up for about two weeks. I'm really getting tired of being told the same things over and over. She tells me it sounds like endometriosis yet will not really talk to me about diagnosing it since my "birth control is working." I really wonder if I should go to a different kind of doctor or something.
