Hi everyone, Am new here but wondered if anyone can help. Am aware that it is commonly younger women still menustrating who suffer with endo symptoms but i am 54 and suffering badly with the exact same symptoms. Leg pains started about 4 yrs ago progressing to severe lower abdominal, groin and leg pains in last year. My last proper period was about 2 years ago but in the last year have had 3 massive bleeds that took meds to stop the flow. Am losing time off work and feeling really low now. Have so far had scan on kidneys, back scan and rectal exam. Also had a womb biopsy after each bleed - each time clear but with a poylp removed on one occassion. Am waiting for a pelvic scan but not expecting miracles. Have tried to talk to GP and consultant about endo but they won't take it on board because of my age. Is there anyone out there in similar circumstances - it might just save me from going mad!!!
I feel so sorry for you all when i read your stories - i wish i could wave a magic wand
for everyone xx
