Hi everyone. This is my first time posting after coming across this site today. I have not been diagnosed with endo but have lap in 3 weeks.
Id say my symptoms first started when I was 16 after I had my daughter. So 12 years ago.. Was just small things at first that I could always come up with different reasons. Periods got heavier and sorer. Then some pain during sex. Then 3 years of abnormal smears and biopsies. (not sure if thats connected in anyway!).
I reckon though the past 3 years have been the worst. Pain has worked up to every single day I have pelvic pain. Sometimes its bearable sometimes excruciating. Sometimes stabbing or slicing pain sometimes period like pain. Can never predict and wake up every morning wondering how much pain today will bring. Sex is almost a no go as it hurts everytime and for a few days after the pain can have me doubled over. Also get shooting pains goin up inside me (vagina and backside) thats only occasional though.
Also get alot of pain in my right hip for a few days every month sometimes making walking unbearable.
Lots of headaches and the past week or so lots of light headed spells feeling faint feeling sick.
Have also being ttc for about 7 years. Fell pregnant in 2012 but lost baby at 14 weeks. Been to doc about infertility my bloods showed high hormone levels which I don't know what that really means. Hubbys tests all fine.
Had a scan which showed nothing so like I say got my lap in 3 weeks.
I think I've covered everything!! Basically life is hell and so painful and would b nice to speak to anyone who knows how I feel. Noone around me understands how sore and exhausted i am on a daily basis.
Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing from anyone 😊 xx
