I'm 17 years old and have symptoms of endometriosis for 6 years. It started of with migraines, sickness and painful periods and have progressively got worse to the point where it affects my day to day life. Due to it being undiagnosed I missed out on a lot of my exams, time in school and college to the point where I failed as I was unable to sit in the exam. After my most recent appointment to the doctors they have agreed to refer me to a specialist.
The symptoms I have;
Day to day pain (unbearable to the point where I have a panic attack)
Due to my age they are very reluctant to do any test.
Has anyone else having the same problem? How can I make them see that it really does affect my day to day life to the point where it's impossible to find work due to being unwell all the time.
Does anyone else think that the symptoms I am showing are signs of endometriosis as I don't want to be fobbed of with them saying no.
