Firstly can I say how much comfort all your posts have given me as I am just beginning to go through the process of a diagnosis. I have had ME/CFS for 10+ and so some of my symptoms I put down to my ME. However after 13+ years of the pill and just dealing with it the symptoms that weren't ME started to get to the point where after 8 full periods in 2 weeks, frustrated and exhausted I went to the doctors, I am 26. Thankfully my male doctor and my female nurse have gotten me a TA and TV ultrasound within two weeks (scan is on Thursday) and they have quickly ruled out other things like thyroid conditions or PCOS and suspect Endometriosis.
I was wondering:-
A) how many people have been offered the lap surgery for diagnosis or did you have to ask for it?
B) are there any others with both ME and Endo as I understand the proportion is quite high?
I am hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel as I feel like it's all in my head sometimes. Many thanks 😊
