    Could I have endometriosis??

    I have some weird symptoms that I can not make sense out of.... I thought that I ask here, and see if anyone can help me...

    I started my periods at the age of 15. I had pretty painful cramps and in my 20s-early 30s I definitely hade both BAD cramps and stomach issues. Every time I was on my period the first couple of days my stomach would be all over the place. Would feel like I had the stomach flu, pretty much.

    Fast forward to now at the age of almost 46. The last year or so my periods have gotten lighter and lighter. Still come very regularly, but are light. Since last fall I have suffered from some odd stomach issues. I started having bad rectal pains and went to see a doctor. Two doctors have performed rectoscopies, but can not find anything troubling. The specialist found the remains of an old hemmorroid plus sensitive anal tissue. But I STILL feel weird... Sort of like something is "pushing" on my rectum (especially on one side creating an on-and-off pressure...

    I have recently had a transvaginal ultrasound that showed nothing wrong. Everything looked fine, the gynecologist said. I have not yet had any tests looking at my colon/instestines further up.

    My thinking has wondered towards endometriosis... I have read about women having problems with endometriosis on their rectum/colon or between the vagina and rectum. BUT I'm not in any horrific pain. It's more of an annoying rectal/lower stomach pain sometimes. It makes me very worried, but does not otherwise interfere with my work, etc.

    If somebody has any inputs/thoughts I would REALLY appreciate hearing about them !
