Yet again I read of doctor's incompetencies and ladies battling endo having to take on a very lonely, long battle to be heard. If you want something done...do it yourself. My endo was finally discovered after 23 years, 15+ years of suffering crippling chronic fatigue, no quality of life and significant pain and being simply told by GPs it was all in my head. Articles like this make my blood boil, why is it up to us to diagnose ourselves in this day and age. Good on this amazing lady for researching and diagnosing herself, this happens far too often, how long do we have to continually read stories like this before the medical profession wise up and act?
