I was diagnosed last year at age 17 with stage 2. I then under went a long operation to remove the endrometriosis tissue, however recently my pain is back I have been taking the pill for a number of year to counteract the constant pain and regulate periods. I'm only 18 and I suffer from almost constant chronic pain. My a level studies are being compromised meaning I have to study a year longer. I'm struggling to come to terms with my diagnosis and that a year of my life has been altered due to this pain. I was wondering whether anyone had any tips on controlling or distracting pain especially when studying? I have tried a number of pain medications and heat.
