Since the beginning of this year I have had severe lower abdominal pain which is leading to back and hip pains (I had inflammation in my hips a couple of years ago and my hips and back feel like they're inflamed again). I've been passed around from Dr to Dr doing different tests and antibiotics and more swabs and blood samples....nothing. Today I went back to the Dr's and have been told I need to go for an ultrasound scan to eliminate the possibility of having endometriosis. However I've read on the NHS websites and other medical websites that this doesn't always show this condition in a scan and the only way for diagnosis is keyhole camera through the lower abdomen. To be honest I'm fed up of it all it's making me feel horrible all the time because its been a pain for 7 months and I feel nothing is being done about any of it i'm just being fed pain killers and antibiotics which don't work. Hopefully this scan will show something and I can get it sorted.
How have others been diagnosed? I don't want the Dr's to eliminate this possible condition considering I have shown most of the symptoms when they haven't checked properly.
