Pain keeping me up at night may not be endo

I went to the gp today and he said that the pain I described may not be endo-related or if it is it's acting very strange. that my pain is related more to the renal or kidney area. that I might have a kidney stone. it sounds silly but this made me feel great. yes, I know I have endo but the pain i've been experiencing was always so strange and having been to a few doctors now I always felt like once they agreed I had endo they just dismissed me and my symptoms. it was the first time I felt someone was actually listening to me. the funny thing is I went in the office asking for an endo specialist referral. I've gotten so used to not being listened to that when my doctor started asking questions I was a little confused. I don't know what will happen but I have hope that if I get properly diagnosed this pain will be less. lesson I learned is it's always worth waiting longer for the better doctor then assuming they are all the same. wish me luck!

  • I'm glad that you've finally managed to get proper attention. And you're right, if you are properly diagnosed it's much easier to treat the pain. Good luck with the next steps!
