: Hi there. I am so so so scared that I have endometriosis. The doctors have said it sounds like iritable bowel syndrome, but I've also had this knawing low back pain that makes it really hard for me sometimes. I've casually mentioned it to the doc, but at the time thought it was no big deal because I just thought it was back pain. But now I've been reading a few things and that is a main symptom. I also read that it can be mistaken for ibs with irregular bowel movements and stomach trouble.
: I went for a check up not long ago and I did feel some discomforting pain during the internal exam.
: I really want a family.
: What should I do? I'm freaking out about this!
: I can not tell you what I'd do if I couldnt have kids!
: Please give me some input.
Hi, I am freaking out right now too! I have intense random abdominal pains every day.
My gastroenterologist thought it might be IBS so I went in for endoscopy and a Lower GI,
and he asked if I had ever been diagnosed with endometriosis. I have lower back pain also, but I have never had
unbearable menstral cramps or heavy periods. I'm only 22 years old, and I'm terrified that I won't be able to have children.
I'm still waiting for my xray results, but I have a feeling they won't show anything. Meanwhile, I am waking up every morning to SEVERE
sharp gas pains before a bowel movement. If any one else has any input, please let me know.
