I have been suffering on and off for 5 years (I'm 32) Every bout/flair up seems to be less intense although I notice it is always linked to crying everyday, feeling extremely anxious, hot flushes and general depression. I always thought I was feeling all these things because I was in pain and very very terrified as it is a horrid pain that you dont really recognise. Could it be that this is a form of depression? Is it a stress condition? I also get very obsessional about it when it comes upon me, trying desperately to 'fix' it and make it go away. Is this making it worse? Strange that it can go away for months/years then come back one morning out of nowhere. Will I suffer fom these bouts for the rest of my life? I feel like it is the worst thing I'm ever endured, I've had appendiciitus and endometriosis and they are a walk in the park compared to this discomfort.
