I am new to this community and am just after a little bit of advice.
I started my periods when I was 11 years old, they were horrendous painful and heavy meaning I missed days off school, got sent home from school, couldn't even leave the house sometimes without leaking through instantly.
Eventually, my gp put me microgynon which I continued taking until I was 22.
I decided to stop taking microgynon for various reasons but since then the pain has gone back to the way it was when I was younger (I am 24 now)
Currently I get pain everywhere, legs, back stomach, I get sweaty and nauseous the pain wakes me up and is so bad that all I can do is sit in a scolding hot bath. I take time off work regularly becausesometimes I can't even stand and a couple of months ago I was first to work and a colleague came in to find my lying on the kitchen floor rolling around in agony. I also Leak through within 30 minutes.
Finally after years of being ignored my doctor sent me for blood tests which came back clear. He then sent me for an ultra sound internal and external and here's where I'm confused
The sonographer said she couldn't see anything but said from my symptoms she's quite certain I do have endometriosis.
She said to me my results will be sent back to my gp and that he will likely then send me on to a specialist.
In people's experience is it likely my gp will refer me or will he fob me off with clear scan results?
If he does refer me what is the next steps I'm likely to experience ?
Did anyone else have clear scans only to find they did actually have endo ?
Sorry for all the questions and long message this is all new to me and I feel quite scared, anxious confused all the emotions!
