Hi all, I'm seeing my GP next week (armed with the Endo UK pain and symptom diary and history diary) to talk about endo. She diagnosed IBS 4 years ago (I get diarrhoea about once a day and can take about 4 packets of imodium instants in a week), and always offers contraceptive pills or the coil when I complain about painful sex or frequent periods (my cycle is about 24/25 days in length and extremely heavy). What were your experiences with your GPs? Did anyone go to a national endo centre?
I was wondering if anyone experiences sharp abdominal pains (not stitches) after they exercise? It completely ruins the endorphin high that I'm on and is immensely painful. It's like a shooting, stabbing pain and always in the abdominal/ovary area.
I hope I finally get a referral to an endo specialist and can get a laproscopy to see what is actually causing all my symptoms!
