What was your turning point where you knew something was wrong? And how long did it take from there to get diagnosed?

Was there a specific time or symptom, or issue that caused you to know something was wrong or not ok?

And once you knew how long did it take for you to get a diagnosis, and what were some of the issues you experienced in trying to get diagnosed?

I was super sick for about 3 months with terrible stomach pain. I went to my gyno and after an evaluation she recommended seeing a surgeon. The process went pretty quickly after that to get to surgery.

It took me seven months from the date of my first medical appointment to have my lap and get diagnosed. I wasn’t getting pregnant so I asked to see a fertility doctor.

After a few ultrasounds (cysts were shown each time) and ovulation tracking (observations appeared to show that I wasn’t ovulating) I was scheduled for my lap. Stage IV endo was discovered at that time.

I think for me it was the first time I threw up from the pain in my early 20s. Another turning point years later was when i was in so much pain i couldn't sit down- that led me to using CBD. Finally got diagnosed this year at 31.

I'm sorry you went through that, and that it took so long for a diagnosis. Thank you for sharing. I use mmj also, but both types. Ive found suppositories are the only thing extremely helpful for my pain. I also use the cbg (not cbd, cbg) oil for my sciatic nerve pain, its the only thing that helps that particular symptom.
