HELP! i think i have ENDOMETREOSIS

so about a month ago, about 3-4 days before my period i got a very sore tummy (not cramps) like a sharp stabbing pain. it was up the top of my tummy and then it also was sore in the lower right of my tummy. i ended up going to the hospital and they thought it was appendicitis but then they did a ultrasound and said my appendix looked fine. so they sent me home with no answers. and about a day or 2 after my period it stopped.

then a couple of days ago (again about 3-4 days before my period) the same pain has come back. it’s still in the same spots and this time it’s a little more constant pain. i also get really lightheaded when I stand up and things start going black. I’ve been to the hospital again but they still think it’s nothing. My friend told me about endometreosis and i did a bunch of research on it and now I think it might be that. so i was wondering if anyone here has had endometreosis or currently has it and how can I know if this is endometreosis? also if you’ve had it before and got it treated, what did they do to treat it? I’ve heard of surgery or medicine cures but the most common medicine used it the oral contraceptive pill but I’m already taking that to help with my acne.

please anyone that has any advice or help i would be so thankful xxx

    Hi Leanna,

    While cramps can be part of the period package, severe pain may mean something else is going on. Your best option for answers is to talk through your symptoms with a doctor.

    You can always follow up with your doctor, explain the extent of your symptoms & ask them ‘could this mean I have Endometriosis?’. If you’re still not satisfied, it doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion.

    Getting answers is the first step forward!

    I’m going through a very similar thing and am currently being monitored. About 4-5 months ago I started feeling stabbing pains and all the common signs of Endo but after going through multiple tests such as Ultrasounds and blood tests the doctors found nothing so they have put me on personalized pain medicines and monitoring. I go for check-ups every 3 weeks to see how things are and still no results have come through.

    For you, recommend recording things like your symptoms, how much sleep your getting, what your moods are like (stress, anxiety, etc). When you start feeling stabbing pains try staying on top of your medicine, take what is best for you or what your doctor has prescribed and only take the advised dosage. To help ease the pain try applying a heat pack, drinking water and snuggling up somewhere you feel comfortable and just relaxing (read a book, watch tv, meditate). Also make sure you have a healthy lifestyle this includes drinking water (at least 2.5 liters – 8 glasses) a day, eating good foods and exercising regularly.

    I do hope you, your doctors and the people around you figure out what to do and how to help you but keep in mind that every person’s body is made differently so when you look up stuff online, yes they may be true symptoms, but your body is different from every other woman so you mustn’t worry about stuff, instead remind yourself that there are so many people who can help you and the problems you may be facing.

    ❤️ from June
