I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2014 after needing an ovarian cyst removed. Apparently I was only at stage 2, so it was easy to remove with no complications. I was advised to start the combination pill to keep the endo at bay - which I have been on ever since.
I have been pain free since the laparoscopy in 2014 and so when I woke up with the most agonising pain last Wednesday I was gutted. I went to A&E as it was so awful, and was given tests and a scan - which showed no cyst or anything abnormal.
It is now Sunday and the pain is sitting nicely on my right hand side. I can walk and do things but the pain is awful and I'm wondering if it is endo and if anyone else has experienced the same thing? I have tried to read up on endo, but it is so vague and I hardly know anything about the condition! I feel sick, and the pain is more of a dull ache rather than sharp. I am taking strong painkillers and it still can be felt.
I know endo cannot show up on scans, but if that is the case how will I know it is that, and if it is will this pain go away on its own?
Thanks so much in advance! I am such a worrier xx
