Hi I'm new here but have been reading many of your posts over the last 6 months after looking into what endemetriosis was. I am currently waiting for a lap to confirm if I have endemitriosis. Both my doctor and gyni both think this is likely as I seem to have all the symptoms! However although I'm sure they're right I still keep doubting it is that normal? I think its probably cause I've had all the scans blood test and even an ecg last week for high heart rate just to be told all fine!
I have had strong pains from sharp stabbing to a ripping,tearing sensation or just a heavy general ache. The pain has got a lot worse over the last few months and after breaking down in tears last week because nothing could help the pains which were now in my hip and legs and I was limping in agony I was given codeine. Finally I thought I'd found help, unfortunately they make me feel very woosey so am trying not to take at work as worried about driving! Anyway I have normally found that the week after my period I have a week of only a general ache that I can ignore but this month its even worse. If this is endo will I ever get a break from these pains or is it just likely to get worse?
I have been having acupuncture for the last month who has been fantastic just the fact he listens to me real off all my problems and has been more helpful than my doctor. In my last session he said he thought he could feel lessions where the pains were in my pelvis.
My worst thing today is my legs, knees, thighs, and even right wrist and thumbs ache tonight that's new! Along with stabbing in my right pelvis.
If anyone can give me any advise while I'm waiting I feel I've been left on my own in limbo waiting for this lap so I know if it is or if its just in my head and I can get treatment anda life back. After work all I want to do is cuddle my hot water bottle and lay on sofa.
I will also have my tubes checked as 8 years of TTC its not looking hopeful, just another worry but right now is just like pain relief and some answers I'm desperate for
Thanks for reading x
