Fatigue???

Hi I’m 17 and my gynaecologist has said I have endometriosis. I get really tired all the time and I’m right in the middle of exams and my parents keep getting mad at me about not doing enough revisions but I feel I physically can’t I’m in so much pain. Was just wondering if there was something I could do to help with the fatigue to get me through exams!!

Hi. So sorry to hear you are going through this. My own experience is to (while it's tempting) avoid caffeine to keep you alert while studying. It's known to make endometriosis pain worse and I have felt this experience first hand. It is a horrid disease and the fatigue is so draining. Can you get a doctors note and see what allowances the teachers can provide?

Wishing you good health

Sam
