| | Endo symptoms?
Hi everyone. I just wanted to ask a question regarding endo.
I am 29 and have 0 children with no chance of pregnancy because I'm not sexually active. if that somehow helps
For the longest time I have been having severe sharp shooting rectal pains that go up into my pelvis and vaginal area. I can't really pinpoint a time when this happens the most because I have experienced it for so long.
If it also helps I always have terrible pains before and during my periods.The pain level varies, but most of the time it's hard to deal with. Bad leg pains that start from my hips and go through my thighs, and the right side is usually a lot worse.. A dr. once wrote that off as sciatica. It was in an E.R but she did not even suggest anything further, just handed me a script for pain.
I do get lower back pain and do have a slight spinal injury so it is hard to tell exactly why that's happening. But at times I do get sudden sharper pains in my lower back that didn't usually happen before.
Nausea is something I usually have with my period but expperiencing that off it as well.
I also always have diarrhea with every period I have. I hardly ever suffer from constipation with it. It's just the diarrhea.
I have bled in between periods before. My urine test I had done recently showed a small trace off blood that was not coming from my vagina. It came back as negative for any kidney disease or anything like that.
Recently, I have been getting the diarrhea and leg cramping off of my period. Fot almost a month now.
I usually alwayshave heavy blleding and lots of bloating with my periods. I am experiencing the bloating even off my period now. I am not too sure as to when my period is starting this month because they have always fluctuated.
Also, I recently had an ultrasound that showed a 2.6 cm cyst on my right ovary and a polyp on my uterus. I know that a polyp is an overgrowth of cells. So I was wondering if it is possible that I may have growths outside of the uterine lining?
It seems that my current Dr. wants to blame all my issues on my acid reflux disease. And I know that dr.s in general tend to write a woman's stomach issues off as IBS.
I am also going to see a gyno/surgeon on the 12th of this month about scheduling a D&C to remove the polyp. How do I get him to listen to my concerns and not just brush me off? I have never met him before, so I don't know what he is like, but I feel that some of this pelvic pain isn't being caused by IBS. Although I do believe I have some digestive issues.
I didn't mean for this to be so long lol. I just wanted to share some of my medical issues with you so that you can have a better understanding and maybe women on this board with endo have had similar issues they can share with me.
Thank you for your answers and time.
