I have fibro and had to have an endometrial biopsy on Mon. no results yet but the pain alone from the biopsy was horrific, now besides having awful cramps and pains in my stomach, my fibro pain is up 200%, has anyone gone through this? he is trying to rule out cancer(scary enough)

Yes, I have. I had to have a a gland drainage in the vulva area ( can't remember the name of the proceedure, lol) Darn, fibro fog. Anyways the Dr gave me 8 injections to numb the area. Needless to say "it didn't work". I felt every incision and every stich. IT WAS HORRIBLE. I told the Dr I was still able to feel everything going on during the proceedure.He said he was not able to give me anymore more numbing med. Coinsidently, I had a appt with my Rheum two days later. I was told my dopamine level was completely depleted. My body is not able to withstand any pain. Dopamine is a chemical that is naturally restored during deep sleep. But, with FMS many of us lack deep-sleep therefore we lack the body's natural way to restore dopamine levels. The key is to find way to get good meds to help sleep. For example Melatonin(I now take this), Lunesta (although pricey, it works), Ambein, Pamelor ( didn't work well for me) but, everyone is different. I hope this help to answer your question:0)

The Dr did not even numb me

I think it sounds normal for your fibro pain to be up after going through that.
I know for me anyway, stress seems to play a role in how I feel. Your body went through the stress of the procedure and the stress from the pain, plus the pain is making it hard for you to rest I'm sure so I can see why your fibro is giving you problems.

Praise God, the results came back normal

I had an endometrial biopsy years ago, and I don't think it's standard procedure to use any anesthesia. Duhda75 is talking about a different procedure. :)


duhda75 - October 9

no general anethisia was used. And your right it was a different proceedure. (but still the same sensitive area) I guess the point I was tring to make was people with FMS suffer from more pain because your body is already in pain.
Jrzgirl1, great news that your biopsy came back normal. I have also had the same biospy done many yrs ago, but mine came back cancerous. But, I am cleared for now.

so glad you are cancer free

I have had a few, there was no pain in mine, but then my fibro wasn't has pronounced as it is today. Yes, over the fact you were excited about the procedure got your body out of wack, hence more sensation more pain. Should subside in a few days or a week. Now that you have fibro, remember to try to get the most gentle gyn doctor you can find or have experience with patient who have fibro. They are less prone to hurt you.

I went to the Dr not knowing he was going to do this procedure.
