I'm worried and confused

Iv been having pain in my back and stomach since I was 13, doctors kept treating me for bladder and kidney infections...I'm now 19 and found out Iv never had an infection and I'm now being tested for endometriosis. I'm a support worker for young adults with autism. Iv been signed off work for 8weeks due to pain and not sleeping. Iv been told nothing about endometriosis...can anyone tell me bits about it...
