I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with *something* by a confused consultant - endometriosis is one of the options, but my symptoms don't really seem to match up with the classic endometriosis picture so I'm just wondering if anyone else has had these strange presentations:
1. Symptoms which don't seem to correlate with the menstrual cycle - I have plotted my symptoms against my cycle and they look pretty much unrelated, not likely to get much worse around period time. They do come and go but not at the same time as the period. I do get period pain which is noticeable and radiates down my legs but it's not horrendously painful.
2. Thobbing/pain around kidney area, i.e. the small of the back between bottom of ribcage and top of pelvic bones.
3. 'Attacks' of feeling really ill (not as a result of pain) that resemble infection or an acute attack of inflammation - i.e. nausea, chills/tremor, loose bowels, that sort of thing. In my case I also get chest pain and suddenly rapid heart rate.
Thanks so much.......
