Do my symptoms sound like Endo?
[FONT="Arial Narrow"]I am 20. I haven't had any children. For the past couple of months i have been having period pains that have been getting worse and worse. The only reason i'm asking here is my step mum had it and she thinks i should get checked out.
I used to get really bad pains one month, and the next month I'd be fine. Now they are really bad every month. I get them about a week and a half before my period and during.

I get very painful cramps in my lower stomach, lower back and all down my legs. My hands get sweaty and when the cramps are really bad, i even find it hard to breathe because i just want the pains to go, so for some reason i hold my breath, really hard to explain. I can never get in a comfortable possition for them to go, lying down, sitting, rolling around, none of it helps any more. I get quite a few blood clots, old blood & my period is heavy. I get nausea and i get very light headed because of the pain and i feel like i'm going to pass out.[/FONT] :confused: :confused: :(

I am sorry you are going through this. I had endometriosis for several years and finally had a complete hysterectomy when I was 37. I had a lot of the same symptoms that you have. I am not a dr but it would be a good idea to get it checked out. Take care.

Definitely get it checked out. I have had endo since 2007 and due to other health problems cannot have a hyst. Instead I am living in pain 7/24, and have to use narcotic pain medication just to get by. Get it as soon as you can.
