Hi this is the first time ive wrote on here, i was diagnosed in jan this year but had problems for about 8years with 3 lap's. I have been on zoladex with livial 6 months, am on high dose of tramadol, stopped ampitryptalin (dnt know how its spelt) as was rubbish, i take naproxen which work a majority of the time. I have been taking herbal supplements and ive tried the endo diet which is very hard to stick to when you have no energy to actually cook. Went back to my doctors as i have just been back from pain management and all he said was "i don't know much about endo ill give you 5 mins of acupuncture" he wasnt giving me any other drugs to try, plus every time i have seen my consultant all he says is try for a baby, well i say i cant physically have a sexual relationship with my partner as i'm in that much pain, ive been back and forth in constant pain. I also one time wrote out a list of symptoms and things that was happening to one doctor and was saying to her while crying that no one is listening to me, she responded to me and said i need to go on antidepressants as if i'm not sleeping then i will be experiencing fake pain in her words. Well today at the doctors he has put me on duloxetine-gastro resistant tablets to try untill i see my new consultant on the 18th of this month so happy it is that quick and ive been able to get an appointment at a private hospital hoping and praying they give me the time of day to explain what is happening to me and that i cannot take it anymore as if it carries on i will loose my job and my partner.
Thanks i feel better now for having that rant and thinking of all of you who is going through this evil weed that is in our bodies.
Stay positive and keep fighting
