I agree with the other poster...it sounds like it might be endo. This is a site w/ some symptoms of endo:

http://www.endo-resolved.com/symptoms.html

I have heard to alternate hot and cold baths, 10 mins in one, 10mins in the other. chocolate, caffeine, yes all of those can aggitate endo. The reason you may not be able to eat chicken and beef is that those also aggitate endo. Reason being, if they are not hormone free then they contain estrogen hormones. Too much estrogen will make endo worse. The site I gave you has ideas of things to eat to help control endo and what not to eat. I have also read taking 100mg of vitamin B6 daily helps reduce the inflammation of endo. I would suggest starting to help it yourself but go ahead and see a GYNO. There is no reason for you to live in this much pain. (((HUGS)))

you're welcome :) I've done lots of endo research b/c I have given much thought to the fact that I might have it.
