I am 22 and I have been in so much pain the past couple months. I have had a ruptured cyst that was unbelievably painful and everything has just been getting worse. I am going to see a specialist for OB-GYN soon to finally find out if I have endometriosis, and I am trying not to worry, but I know something is wrong with my body. My pelvic area hurts all the time, it hurts to have sex, it hurts to have a bowel movement, my back hurts, I am always tired, I have extremely painful periods, I am always in pain
I just want to know from someone what they did to diagnose you and how long it took and what to be prepared for if this is my final diagnosis.
I have so many thoughts going through my head, like will I be in pain all the time? Will I be able to have a baby? Will I have to have surgery?
Everything is so unknown and it freaks me out, I am not a person who complains, but I feel no one understands what I am going through, that is why I am reaching out.
