As yet I have not been diagnosed with endo but have so many of the symptoms on here that I am convinced that it is. However, I went to see the Consultant last week to be told that he didn't think it was endo he thought it was ibs! He came to this conclusion as he did an examination internal and external and said that my pain seemed to be coming from my bowel and my appendix. So instead of having a laparoscopy he has put me on mebeverine which is an antispasmodic for ibs!! He also said he would leave me on my contraceptive pill that I have been taking for the last 6 months. So I now dont understand as how is he going to know which is helping (if either of them do). Also if it is ibs would I be getting excruciating stomach cramp pain a week before my period every month if it was ibs?? Please excuse the long drawn out post but just when I thought I would get some help im back to square one! !
