Mittelschmerz

WARNING: Men might be grossed out about this topic, so don’t read if it squicks you! Also, children should not read this post either. But I don’t believe any are following me. Lol.

This has nothing to do with Epilepsy, which might surprise you, since everything I post is mostly about Epilepsy or TV shows. A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with something called Mittelshmerz. Before the day I was diagnosed, I woke up around 12:00 PM with pain radiating throughout my stomach, my sides, and parts of my lower back. I felt like sobbing. I walked over to my parents room, and I shook my mom awake and said I wasn’t feeling good, and that I was hurting everywhere. My mom gave me some medication, and I thought that was that. But it wasn’t. I woke up three more times, couldn’t find a good enough position to sleep in, and gave up at 9:00 AM. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore and told my mom that I had to go the ER. I felt like an elephant was sitting on my Uterus and wouldn’t get off. I could also compare it to ten period cramps.  I thought I had kidney stones, because I remembered how my dad’s face looked when he had them (I looked very similar to how he looked when he was in pain), and I had to wait in the ER room for almost an hour because they took my pee. (Good thing I can pee on command) and they told me that I didn’t have an urinary infection. Which was good, but also bad. They then had a nice friendly doctor come in and probe my stomach; he thought I had Appendicitis, and then he prodded around somewhere and when I kept wincing in pain in some spots, he rubbed his chin and told me that I most likely had something called, Mittleshwertz, or I indeed had to get my Appendix taken out. He sent me home without any pain medication, and told my mom to call the hospital if I couldn’t jump or down, or if the pain got worse. This was one of the worst things I have ever experienced in my life; and the pain still hasn’t gone away. It comes and goes, but I wish it would just stop. The Eccentional Oils work for only an hour, (blissful hour) but I still wish it would last for a lifetime. I’m going to start to raise awareness for this, because there is no cure for this agony that only twenty percent of woman feel. D:

  1. If it would have been a kidney stone, they sure as hell would have given you pain meds for it. Do female problems not count? :/

  2. I often had this and it felt like appendicitis. Hopefully it won’t be that painful each month…. hot water bottle and medication was the only thing that really helped….then the oral contraceptive pill, of course….

  3. I’m not quite sure what Mittelschmerz is, and I don’t think I’ve had it. But every month I have extremely painful cramps, throwing up, back pain and headaches etc. I think it’s called Dysmenorrhea. I sometimes use paracetamol but it doesn’t work at all. I can’t believe you weren’t given medication though! That’s just unfair! I hope you get better though x
