Hi. I've had digestive & period issues since last November. Gynae suggested endo and prescribed me the progesterone only pill, which made me feel very depressed. So I came off it.
He asked if a wanted a laproscopy which I refused at the time (lower abdominal and internal showed nothing but I had just started my period which didn't help)
My cycle is over the last few months have been 25, 36, 37, 45 and 52 days! Terrible anxiety etc. main symptom right now is upper abdomen bloating, terrible trapped wind, gurgling, bubbling etc.
I've had it constantly for over a mth, and regularly for the last 6 months. I'm under a lot of stress at the moment.
Went to drs Monday and he prescribed me omezaprole for the burning, but wasn't even bothered to talk about the possible endo. (He's a grumpy old man with a rubbish bedside manner!) he said I was stressed and was producing excess stomach acid. The burning has stopped but the bloating and wind is terrible. I've finished my period now and it's still ongoing.
After all that! 😊 my question is - Are these all signs of endo??
I'm paranoid! My mum has recently been diagnosed with MND, my best friend died of ovarian cancer last year and my sister tried taking her life this year. I Get very anxious over my health nowadays!
If they are symptoms of it I will try and do an endo diet, and try to reduce my estrogen etc
Thanks all xxxx
