We have hot sweats, cold sweats, chest pains. As if the whole body is closed. says the young woman. When she was a teenager, she was prescribed painkillers and anti-inflammatories.”I used to go to the emergency room regularly.“.
A disease that cannot be cured
For several years, Anna suffered from not knowing and accompanying better “In the medical community, I’ve been told many times, it’s normal, it’s common, don’t worry.” Lots of women, like Anais, have been told that Painful periods are normal. For the 30-year-old, it is associated with a lack of knowledge and information among doctors. Today, to control her disease, in addition to hormonal treatments, Anna uses supportive care such as orthopedic or physical therapy.We are blankets, we are somewhat like warriors in the treatment process. You have to stand up for yourself to find what works for you to manage the pain.”.
