Ok, has anyone been told that their Endo pain isn't from endo but from their muscles?

Ok, has anyone been told that their Endo pain isn't from endo but from their muscles?

I just went to a new obgyn in hopes that I could get a new dr since my old one isn't really able to help anymore. This new dr is suppose to specialize in endo. I bring all my papers i am suppose to bring. He looks them over and since my original dr didn't write all of what she removed (she just states she removed endo) that from what he sees and what he heard from me (he needed pictures from my surgeries and i didn't think that the report wasn't super specific) that he thinks I am barely a 1 instead of the 3 that my original dr diagnosed me with. He also said that with all the things I have gone through that SOMETHING should have helped with the pain. That my symptoms are not the same as endo pain ( I already warned him that I am not a text book case), and that he thinks it's physio muscular. He wants me to go and get physiotherapy to help my non-endo pains. He also said that if it didn't work, he wants me to try Lupron. I told him I looked into that, but my insurance won't cover it. He had the nerve to tell me that if "your quality of life is that bad, you can afford the shot". I said sure, but when it's $1000 PER shot and I am to have at least 6 of them..... and I am to be on them for a year or more???

It's not the therapy I have a problem with ( I am not going to lie, I am petrified of the pain that I know will result from this), it's the fact that he tells me it's not the endo that has been causing me pain all these years even though I have been diagnosed with endo. That because these items they prescribe that can help some women don't help me, then I must not have that problem. I didn't think of it at the time, but I should have said oh yeah, check out our support groups world wide and tell me that b.c., hysterectomies, menopause, and pregnancies work all the time......
