I've read so many posts from people who are clearly suffering with endo around periods and the pain it causes. I am actually ok on menstruation my worse pain which can knock me sideways is ovulation and the build up to my period. It's weird really because when I actually start my pain eases off a while.
I was only diagnosed on 5/12/14 after emergency surgery for appendix which turned out to be an endometrial cyst. I was sent on my way and to sit and wait for a gynae appointment. In the meantime I had to go and see GP because I was still in a lot of pain, he didn't know anything about my admission and was shocked to see my scars. Anyway, he referred me for a scan as he could see I was in discomfort and he wanted to know what was going on. The scan found a cyst attached to right ovary and my bowel which links to the horrible pain I have on the right and in my bum. Now it's just a waiting game.
is everyone's pain different?
