I don't know if I have endometriosis or not as my GP has suggested I watch and make a diary and see him again in a couple of months.
See I've only just started physically feeling that something isn't right.
At 38 my last period had me feeling quite sick with cramps and I never really suffer from period cramps. Now my period is over I have a constant gnawing pain in my lower left side. It hurts me, almost stabbing, to go to the toilet from my back passage although the consistency is normal and soft. The GP feels it's too early to know what is going on but that I could possibly have endometriosis or just perimenopausal or have stomach bloating.
This is only my first month of pain but the constant gnawing pain says to me this is something very different to what I've experienced.
So I'm at the very beginning and very scared. Scared that it might be endometriosis and scared that it might be something else even more sinister but more so scared that I have to let time go by before I even can begin getting an understanding into this awful pain.
I just wanted to get my feelings in a place that might understand. I haven't told anybody about this because I don't really have anything to tell. I guess I just get on with my diary and wait.
