I've been here before, in January this year I saw Dr Kazkaz, she said I would have been EDS3 but the criteria has changed and I don't fit the new criteria, so it's hypermobility spectrum I have been diagnosed with.
Anyway, A few weeks back I was diagnosed with endometriosis, purely coincidence, I've thought I've had it for years, but GP never took my pain seriously, a blood test for stomach issues found elevated CA125 and an ultrasound found an endo cyst on my ovary.
I was wondering if there was a crossover with having endo and EDS/HMS and whether it was due to the malfunctioning of the bodies connective tissue as well. I have read that even autism can be related.
Also, because of this, I am really scared of having an anaesthetic and being under for possible surgery. I understand we can have a bad time with it (in the dentist the local doesn't work well for me and I can still feel it) and I'm pretty petrified about that, and also the pain afterwards, it's bad enough just to go to a regular appointment, I'm left bedbound after just a sit down appointment, I just don't see how I will be able to cope afterwards.
So if anyone's been through endo and a lap I'd be really thankful to hear your experience or advice.
