Hello all, I am just looking for some advice please. I am 35 years old and I have had some discomfort passing stools for about 6 months. It is not the actual passing but the lead up to passing the stool. For the last 2 months just before and while I am on my period the pain has been unbearable. It makes me double over onto the floor and it comes in spasms almost like contractions during labor and I did consider going to the hospital last night as it was so painful but I knew it would eventually pass. Once I have actually been to the toilet the pain subsides although I am left with a kind of burning sensation just above my pubic line. It also hurts to walk as every time I put either foot down I get a shooting pain just above my pubic line. Everything I have described only happens during my period though. I get a slight discomfort otherwise. My friend said it could be endometriosis. I have never heard of this. Obviously I know I have to go to the doctor as my boss had to take me home from work last night and it was super embarrassing being doubled over in front of my work colleges saying I was having a bad period. I know you guys are not medically trained but does this sound like symptoms of this condition?
