endometriosis

Hi does anyone on here have endometriosis? I've had lower abdomen pain on my right side in the same place for 2 years and it's getting worse. I also have pain in my shoulder. My periods are regular but they are having. My GP isn't taking me seriously and keeps fobbing me off but I need to know how I can get checked out! thanks

I'm not sure I have it yet but I'm currently on a 3 month trial after my first discussion with my doctor.

My advice is switch doctor. If they don't take you seriously, start keeping notes of any unusual things about your cycle that stand out to you. You know your body best and know when something isn't right but the doctor needs to assess this to come to the conclusion.

My symptoms are a regular 26 day cycle,periods last 5 days but heavy, chronically painful cramps during period and recently, cramping and shooting pains in my lower abdomen randomly in my cycle.
I do get an achy shoulder a lot but I'm putting that down to the way I sleep at the moment.

But as I say, I'm not sure it's Endo just yet and wont know until October.

Sorry if that's not much help, I've just posted something about my experience above if you want to check that out.

Best of luck though.

Alison

Hi, I Have just been diagnosed with endo. going back to the hospital tomorrow for further internal scans but it looks like I do have it and will need a laparoscopy to see how bad it is actually is? my cycle is regular (about 30 days) but have very painful periods and back ache. if you think you have it then persist with your doctor and ask for a scan? Good luck, let me know how things progress for you!
