I am trying to find out if Firbomyalgia can be caused by Depo-Provera? I developed sympotoms of FMS 6 years ago, since then I have not had 1 single day pain free! So many pills, doctors, physical therapy, chiroporactic, massage therapy. I filed for disability and have an upcoming physical but at the same time I went off the Depo and my pain has mysteriously vanished. I am positive it was caused by the Depo all along!
My name is Francia and I have been diagnosed with endometriosis five years ago after at least ten years of having symptoms. I had my gallbladder removed due to stones, my appendix had a large endometrial tumor and it was removed too. I also had a total hysterectomy in order to manage the endometriosis pain and excessive blood loss, after having three laparoscopic surgeries. On 2013, about six months after removing my gallbladder, I started to experience severe pain in my abdominal upper right quadrant; I have been hospitalized several time for this problem. I had an ERCP on 2014 but unfortunately, I developed pancreatitis with complications, which caused me to be hospitalized for two months. I still have recurrent pain that resembles a gallbladder attack; because of this, my GI firmly believe that the problem wasn't fixed entirely during the ERCP. I have been at the hospital this year four times for that pain. All this ordeal have caused me to fall into depression, specially because my symptoms have being ignored, but mostly because some people close to me have a hard time believing that I could have pain this severe. I haven't been able to work much, and I'm losing interest in activities that used to make me happy, because I'm constantly afraid that I may get sick at any given time and ruin the plans. I also attempted suicide once last year, luckily for me, my husband acted in the best possible way to save my life. Now I realize how much of a poor decision I made, but it was an act of desperation and distress. I'm here to connect with those who suffer, because I firmly believe that people who faces any type of chronic illness, are more compassionate.
