I am yet to get my date for my laparoscopy even though it was meant to be in October. The consultant said he is pretty sure I have endometriosis from the scans though.
I have suffered from the usual symptoms;
Pain during intercourse
Odd period cycles
Bleeding after sex
Pain basically all the time, ten times more extreme than any period pains I’ve suffered from
I also suffer from;
Bleeding heavily from bottom after bowel movement and also now at the same time I bleed from vagina
My symptom that mostly is affecting me is my extreme exhaustion. I mean, I’m a Mum. I know what tiredness feels like. But this is just awful. I get home from work and I go straight to bed. I can’t even cook dinner anymore, and I love cooking. I find the smallest task a total burden.
Through work I am tired but I work at a behavioural school and I almost just fight on. As soon as I get in my car I feel awful. I almost feel hungover constantly. My muscle ache and are stiff. I find it hard to sleep at times.
I already take iron pills as I’m anemic but this is just getting worse. Even after a good nights sleep I’m shattered.
I googled endometriosis and exhaustion and fibromyalgia came up and upon reading the symptoms it’s basically summing me up.
If I go to the doctor will they help me here? Is there anything that they can do? I am so fed up of feeling like total crap all the time. I’m not enjoying my son growing up as I’m so irritable constantly and I’m just giving my family a hard time.
I feel totally and utterly exhausted. Any advice would be much appreciated.
I also worry about cancer, as this is quite common in my family with my auntie being misdiagnosed for years, then finding bowel cancer which unfortunately has spread to most internal organs. This worries me a lot.
