Hi all, hope you are well.
Long story short: I am 22 and after 10 years of endometriosis pain I finally saw a specialist in Nov who said yes, I have endometriosis. I was confirmed for surgery in Feb and I am awaiting a hospital date.
I've also developed some odd neurological symptoms (loss of consciousness, odd sensations, seeing lights & hallucinations) and I am being investigated for atypical migraine aura & epilepsy. My GP said I am now a stroke risk because of the possible migraine aura and took me off the lovely combination pill that worked great for me and put me on Cezarette, as its progesterone only.
Since starting this pill (November) I had insane mood swings (something I've never had) extreme anxiety and depression. It lasted for 2 weeks and then disappeared. I then began getting a swollen face, swollen glands, I've put on weight and feeling very bloated. My mood levels have dropped and I feel tired and lethargic, I have also been bleeding irregularly after the specialist told me to take the pill constantly to avoid bleeding before surgery. The pill is awful, I am grey and bloated and fed up! My facial bloating and swollen glands are horrible, uncomfortable and making me so self conscious. I feel like crap!
Does anyone have any experience with cerazette? I've given it 7 months and hate it! The GP wants me to keep taking it until they know about the migraines and was reluctant to let me try anything else.
Does anyone else have migraine aura and use a hormone treatment that works for them?
