I have had endo symptoms for about 20 years and about 3 months ago found out it was discovered in another operation 3 years ago.....but everyone forgot to tell me!! Now i have been to the GP as i think i also have fibro If i explain my symptoms would someone tell me what you think? and educate me on the best treatment etc?
My main problem is pain, pain in my back, feels like someone has stamped on my spine and broken a few bones that feel crunchy inside, pain in my thighs and knees. Extreme tiredness...i cant even blow dry my hair anymore as my arms and shoulders ache to much. My shoulder muscles and my arms feel so broken like i have been power lifting like there is just no use left in them...the worst at the moment is my hands and wrists they look a little swollen but feel like sausages about to split!! the are so so sore and stiff. It feels like i am wearing boxing gloves even my wrists feel swollen and sore.
I am going to the gps on friday for a blood test to rule out anything else......the doctors seem to think this well could be fibro.........what do you guys think? What should i be pushing for? ...a referral to anyone? who would you see? should i take any medication? btw i currently take the following for endometriosis.....naproxen, cocodomol, tramodol, amytriptaline, oramorpgh......and am on the waiting list for a hysterectomy, excision of endo and pelvic floor repair ..........please any guideance would be appreciated xxxx
