I was reading articles all night about this disease and learned a lot about myself. I realized all my symptoms started after a miscarrage when i was 18, one of the worst miscarrages i ever had. I am 28 now and still no relief. I went through 7 miscarrages, emergency rooms for pain so bad that they would put me on morphine. Was put on depo for a year and some relief until it wore off after 6 weeks then would have to wait for the next one, mean while taking pain killers non stop. The pain is so bad at times that it paralyzes you severely. It's hard to keep a job with a condition like this. Endometriosis is a real disability. I lived in NY for six years and was getting treatment there and had to move to Niveville Florida, my home town. The health care system is completely different here. No help from any doctor I have seen. No pain killers, nothing. Even with health ins for a little bit didn't even help. Over 80,000 dollars in debt and still no help. The health system should try to make things a little easier for people like me. No money and poor health conditions. What scares me the most is some of the articles i read, said that endometriosis can kill. If you are seeking medical attention for your condition, be aware of possibilities of strokes with severe cases. I was shocked when reading about this. Cerebellar endometriosis do have some side affects that can cause stroke. Or so I've read. Since I can't see a doctor, I won't know for sure. Here's hoping someone will find a cure. One thing is for sure, not everyone has the same symptoms. I have been trying to find someone who has the same problems I do. Symptoms are; no periods lasting up to 6 months, really bad back pain, weakness of your whole body, low body temperature( lowest temp of mine was 95.8), tremors, headaches, naussa, bowel issues, either going non stop or can't go at all(varying time of the month), depression, pain in legs, joint pain, vomiting, severe mood swings, cold sweats, pain so bad that you think your going to die, feeling like your in labor, fainting. If anyone has these same issues as me, please contact me through email. firstname.lastname@example.org
It seems that life can feel a little easier when you know your not alone.
