Hello lovely people,
I got my Endo confirmed yesterday finally after a 2 year battle with my GP and probably have had it’s symptoms for 15+ years, and got my first Decapeptyl injection to start shrinking my 8cm chocolate cyst – 5 to go!
Despite the battle, I am feeling really optimistic that I am getting help, people are listening to me and although it will never be cured I must surely start to see a difference in the upcoming months. However I am feeling pretty crappy and know it will be a combination of the condition, the injection, the anti-climax of getting somewhere and just feel a bit sorry for myself and exhausted. Can anyone recommend something (like a herbal supplement/vitamin) just to give me an extra spark? I have read a lot of this condition starts with diet which I am tinkering with, but need something along the way to support my journey. I’ve read about allsorts such as magnesium agnus castus etc. Perhaps even a food group would help the most. I have picked up tips from the endo diet and starting with eliminating caffeine, but want to do one thing at a time so my body doesn’t go into total shock all at once.
I guess I am after the ‘magic potion’ we’re all searching for, and probably expect I just have to be paitent, allow myself to adjust and allow time for rest and appreciate this.
