I'm 20 years of age and to cut a long story short I have suffered with (what I thought were) symptoms of endometriosis for 4 years.
Originally started as bowel problems (upset stomach, abdominal pain, bowel urgency) but in the 6 months later problems wtih random bleeding occured. The doctors changed my pill but still no difference. At one point I bled a small amount every day for around 3 months. Put on the injection, stopped the bleeding but pelvic, back, abdominal and hip pain/bowel issues/tiredness and fatigue and pain during/after sex remain.
Blood tests/IBS medication/antibiotics for consistent water infections/stool samples/urine samples/ultrasounds/colonoscopy/endoscopy/bladder medication showed/cured nothing.
After a long, infuriating battle (and some private hospital appointments) I FINALLY got a lap in January 2018. It showed nothing other than a swollen bowel.
Without sounding mental or ungrateful.. I am SO dissappointed. Obviously endo is not something that I have ever wanted but I just have no idea what else my problem could be. I am constantly tired, often dizzy and nauseous, suffer from pelvic/back/abdomimal and hip pain daily. Pain during sex, constant bloating, headaches, sometimes pain when urinating, random shooting pains in my ribs and pain when going to the toilet. Alls I have been sent away with is a FODMAP diet which is making no difference.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated🤕
