I just got diagnosed with Chronic Pain Syndrome today by my NP. I have chronic abdominal and pelvic pain. My NP says it could be a lot of things, two of which are the fact that I've had Pelvic Inflammatory Disease before (she says that sometimes, women can get chronic, life long, abdominal and pelvic pain after having Pelvic Inflammatory Disease even if it happened years prior to the pain starting) and the second cause could be the increasing amount of cerebral spinal fluid in my abdominal cavity from my shunts draining. It's normal for me to have SOME cerebral spinal fluid in my abdominal cavity and pelvis because that's where my shunts' catheter drains into (I have hydrocephalus) but it's NOT normal that the fluid level is rising. She says, there's basically nothing she can do. She told me to get a heating pad and take Benadryl to sleep (DOESN'T WORK!) and she gave me Naproxen. That's kind of the whole story... Well, no, I've been dealing with this pain for weeks on end now. I've gone to the ER many times, but nothing could be found, other than the CSF rising.
