Re: need some honest advice

I was having the same symptoms, and actually fainted one morning from the spike of pain in my abdomen, so don't discount those dizzy spells. Definitely talk to your GYN and dr. Endometriosis is hard to diagnose, and the medical community still doesn't know much about it. Endometriosis is a diagnosis by exclusion - meaning they rule out other possibilities first, and cannot be seen most of the time by ultrasound. The only definitive diagnosis is by have a laproscopy (invasive surgery where a tiny camera is inserted thru incision in the abdomen). Find a dr who is specialist with endometriosis and you will begin to feel supported. I think half the battle is knowing! Good luck!
