I’m writing this as I’m really struggling, I feel like life is not worth living. And I don’t know what to do.
I’ve suffered with anxiety since I was young, growing up my periods were regular but painful. I had combined pill which gave me migraines so I switched to copper coil and over a few year my periods got bad. Pain and extreme fatigue took over. I went to the doctors over and over and told it was just my anxiety with heavy periods. Fast forward a few years and I pushed for laparoscopy where I was diagnosed with endometriosis. The whole thing was a massive struggle and it made my anxiety worse. I was pretty much bedridden with pain and eventually got excision surgery two years ago. I fell pregnant and now have a 1 year old.
The pain has crept bk, first just at period time, now at ovulation. And major fatigue, I feel ill pretty much everyday, I can’t cope. I get headaches, acne, hot flushes, no sex drive, bad stomach which has me on the toilet all the time. I have a baby to look after and I feel like I’m not capable. I’ve seen Endo consultant who said he’s not sure if it’s bk and another one who said my pelvic floor is tight maybe from traumatic birth and that I’m so tense so that may be the cause of pain. I’ve had blood tests which show nothing. I get a low heart rate which they say is nothing. Every time I stand up I feel I’m going to faint which they say is nothing. I’ve been extremely stressed for years with no one believing me and I can’t do it anymore. Is this endometriosis or anxiety, I don’t know anymore. I don’t know what to think or how I feel, I want to give up! But I can’t as I have a beautiful girl to look after. Please anyone if you have any advice ? X
