Shes always had nasty periods, painful and heavy, she follows me in my younger years i guess. But things seem to be getting worse not better, shes 21
this year, so her periods are well and truly established by now. Shes training to be a teacher and this problems is affecting her day to day life.
We've been to the GP, he perscribed mefanamic acid (it helped slightly to reduce the amount of blood), and also ibuprofen (she couldnt take it as it
upset her stomach), and codeine and paracetamol mix (15/500)., they help, but i dont want her to have to continue taking these because of the problems
of addiction they can cause.
I saw an acupuncturist a couple of years ago for a sciatica problem, and i have to say,it cured the pain more than any morphine based analgesia.
Ive been trying to find out online if Acupuncture is available on the NHS, and the results are ropey, availability is limited apparantly. Has anyone
had, or know someone who has had acupuncture paid for by the NHS? I will pay privately i think even though funds are very tight, because she needs
Does anyone have any other suggestions i could try. Im getting desperate now, this is no exaggeration, she just left the house to see her dad,
wearing an incontinence brief and four sanitary pads (her, not her dad lol), this cant be right or acceptable surely?
Any help or advice would be so graciously appreciated. Thanks in advance my friends.
