Hello. My name is Emma, I am 37 years old and I am new posting here. I was diagnosed with endo 2012 during fertility investigations. Turned out the symptoms that I has been experiencing for a few years previously and could not get a GP to take me seriously. In 2012 they removed endo from bowel, bladder, womb wall and from my left ovary with a very large cyst from my left ovary. They did not grade my endo and I have never had a review for the endo since. I am now experiencing a lot of symptoms and really struggling with them. I have requested a Gp review as I am really struggling at work and home life due to the symptoms. My periods are heavy now, I experience a increase in pain and feel a lot of pressure where my left ovary is. I am always tired and feeling anxious and emotional all the time with headaches. I am now feeling like I am in the menopause as I am hot flushing, night sweats and not sleeping now. I also have IBS symptoms with alot of bloating. Am I going mad or is this all to do with the endo getting worse? I just wish that my periods would stop and not come back as I feel that I can not cope with it all now and get through my work and home life. My fanily, friends and work colleagues are not understanding of how I am feeling and have labelled me as overly sensitive with a attitude problem.
