I'm so happy I came across this site. I'm a first timer and I have searched everywhere to find an environment like this to discuss what I'm currently going through. The odd part about this is that I live in Canada. Sorry if the lingo is a little different.
After confirming 2 abnormal paps over a range of 6 months, I had my colposcopy about 12 days ago. It wasn't horrible but it it wasn't fun either. There was the normal symptoms after the Coloscopy – dark bleeding and cramps. I noticed that my cramping persisted after the "normal" 2 days. My mild and dull cramps they started to really intensifying. I had shooting pains across my lower back, down my leg which caused my left foot to tingle. This continued for a day or two. I went to my family doctor to see if something may have gone wrong during the biopsy. He told me that it may be a pinched nerve, gave me advil and told me to sleep (I should of went to my gyne/specialist).
I have been on a steady diet and haven't been eating anything out of the “norm”. Fast forward 4 days, maintaining dull cramps and I start my period. This is good I think...... until I wake up in this morning. I feel nauseated and am battling dizziness. It kinda reminded me of my vacation in cuba but minus the rum. I have an appt. With my gyne( the specialist) on Wednesday to find out what is happening to me. I get it paps and coloscopy's are all normal procedures but I'm NOT feeling right.
Has anyone have this happen to them? I really hope I'm not overreacting.
