Hi all,

I am fairly new to this but had endometriosis/adenomyosis for years now. Last November, I tried the GNHR analogue injections again & had HRT patches, but I felt really poorly on them so only had two & my last one was in January.

I have felt like I've had my period coming ever since, but it's still not arrived. I'm constantly tired, to the point of exhaustion and nearly falling asleep at my desk at work, going straight to bed when I get home and aching and pulling muscles all over. I've been to the doctors loads of times & last week, I was told I have fibromyalgia & endometriosis wouldn't make me feel like I do.

My last laparoscopy in 2014 found I didn't have endometriosis, but actually had adenomyosis and small fibroids but my four laparoscopies before have found endometriosis.

I am so confused what's happening, is it the injections/build up to my period (whenever it comes), or actually fibromyalgia making me feel like this?

I am only 34 & cant do too much because I get so tired, I went out the weekend & felt terrible for it.. any advice would be extremely welcome.

Thank you so much,

Vicki x

Hi! I have fibromyalgia, endometriosis and adenomyosis. They all make you extremely tired but the adenomyosis makes you feel absolutely exhausted to the point where you can't get up. I have decided to have Zolodex implants for a few months, then take a break and then back on implants. I have to have a bone scan as the zolodex can give you osteoporosis. I would see a gynaecologist who is sympathetic to your issues and discuss which is the best for you. Don't rush into a hysterectomy as being in the menopause makes the fibromyalgia worse, as I blooming know!!! Good luck xx

I too tried the injections I had them in October and November but they had serious affects on my bipolar and made me really depressed. They also didn't help at all with the pain. It took 87 days for my period to restart and the whole time I felt awful like I was about to come on but wouldn't come. I'm now booked in for a hysterectomy on the 3rd April.

Thank you both, the exhaustion is the worst feeling, I can almost tolerate the constant pain because I've had it for so long but I just can't function with the fatigue.

As horrible as it is, it is reassuring I'm not the only one. I've been made to feel for years it's all in my head, which has made this whole thing even worse.

Thank you again & hope you're ok xxx
