Post menopausal pain and bleeding
2 Replies
lizbet - April 19

Hi everyone. Im new to this but I love your site its so informative and makes me realise im not alone in all of this. I finished work 3yrs ago when I was diagnosed with this evil disease and suffer daily with severe pain,stiffness, ibs,and
other ailments too numerous to mention!!! For the past 12mths Ive been having period type pain in lower abs and back and have had post menopausal bleeding several times. The pain is now always there. My Gynocologist says there is nothing wrong and its just 'one of those things' shrugs his shoulders and leaves me to get on with it. I was wondering it anyone has had anything similar.
surely fibro wouldnt cause this too would it?
Im also having bad swelling and pain in my feet ankles and lower legs. Its very painful and swollen and red. The foot pain is on my instep into my ankles and along the outer side of my feet and all around both outer ankles. My legs are too tender to touch and the foot pain stops me walking. Sorry Ive gone on a bit but im struggling to cope at the moment and no one seems
to understand at all.
Take care xx

Lizbet, Im not sure. It could be I guess, as I know my periods have gotten so bad I need to take pain pills for the cramping. My cramps have gotten so bad, going into my legs, my low back, and stomach, that I cant stand it. It will even wake me up at night once I do fall asleep. I know my feet swell during this time also which causes my feet to hurt.
If he has thoughly checked you out and is confident that its nothing, it could be the fibro.
Have you mentioned this to your primary doc? If you havent you should, so you can feel reassured. I sometimes feel like the minute they know you have fibro, thats what they blame everything on. Hope i was of some help and good luck to you!!

Thanks toots2889, Im going to go to docs in a few days and see what he has to say. You are right about them blaming everything on fibro though. My doc has been very sympathetic and understanding but lately he blames everything on fibro too.
Take care.xx
