Hi, I've signed up to this community because I've had a really hard few months.
I haven't had an endo diagnosis through operation but was put on the deppo injection and told if symptoms improved it was very probably endometriosis. My symptoms did improve but I gained a lot of weight at each 12 week appintment as well as increased anxiety/low mood so was advised to stop. All symptoms have also stopped with two pregnancies. I am very blessed to have been able to have 2 children. However following both pregnancies, the most recent one only 4 months ago, my symptoms come back with avengence. More recently I have been experiencing severe pain in the area of my gallbladder as well as horrible fatigue and anxiety. I have a scan booked for a few weeks time to check for gallstones and a gp appointment next week as I'm o my have one ok week a month symptoms free. My poor partner is very supportive but even I've had enough and it's a struggle with a 4 month old baby ☹.
I feel like it's taking over my life. I'm 33 and this all started when I was 12... start of my periods but it wasn't until after the birth of my first child it was properly recognised after repeated visits to gp and walk in centre due to horrific pain and feeling unwell.
I'm at a loss for what to do and my anxiety takes over leaving me convinced I have something terrible wrong with me and fear of dying, collapsing etc. I am having to work really hard on my mental health but the weeks I feel unwell it's a downward spiral.
