My doctor says its impossible to have endometriosis symptoms everyday. He says the pain should only be on my period. Guaranteed its worse on my period but I'm in pain and exhausted everyday :( does anyone else suffer everyday of the month and if so how are you managing things? I'm really struggling to get up on a morning and carry out my daily routine, I feel like if I don't at least sort out my fatigue some how I will lose my career any advice would be great. Thanks in… read more
I definitely have symptoms almost everyday. I have had 3 laparoscopys in 3 years because mine grows on my intestines, behind my uterus and on my ovaries and I have now been able to almost track when the growth worsens etc. Your doctor doesnt seem very sympathetic, but that is probably because they don't suffer from this themselves. I am a firm believer that you need a doctor that you can be open and honest with and someone that will genuinely be concerned. I find that excercise has helped me with my fatique, even when i am in a lot of pain I go because it also distracts me. I've completely cut down on dairy and red meat and gotten rid of all gluten in my diet as well as I've found that they exasperated my symptoms. Good luck, be positive and fight this head on :)
I have pain everyday! I just had surgery December 2nd to remove as much of the tissue they can. It seems the surgery did not work so they put me on the Lupron shots to put me in what's called a menopause state. I myself am looking into how to cope with the pain and what works best for others so I can give it a try. Being 25 myself living with this is so unfair. I am with you girl.
I suffer every single day. I have a doctor that actually believes me about the pain. Somedays are worse then others, but lately it seems more bad then good. I just try to eat really good (when I am not nauseous) and a lot of water. I struggle too everyday to just get out of bed. Hope you find a doctor that will help you.
I am in pain daily some days are better than others. I know how you feel.
Your doctor is horribly wrong. To help my doctor understand it, I kept a pain diary...pain didn't follow my cycle at all! You don't need a female...just one willing to educate themselves 're the condition! This doc sounds like he has no idea (or interest)...says a lot about his worth as a doc (zero)! Especially when there is much info in medical journals and anecdotally in forums etc(I work as a nurse in uk).
