I may not respond to all the posts here on DS but let me tell you...I read them all. My heart goes out to each and every one of you. I felt I had to write this cause if it werent for all you ladies and your daily battles I dont think I could go on. When I see how you all go through this evil on a daily basis it keeps my hopes to a better day. I am sure you all have felt the same feelings..Can I go on?...sometimes when the pain is so bad I have mixed emotions cause I really dont have anyone to talk to. My husband can only hear so much and I have lost a lot of friends cause I'm practically home bound. I wrote about going to the Mayo Clinic and they want a *Summary letter* from my Dr. well...I have been waiting for almost 2 weeks for it! I live 2 hours one way and they said they have all notes sent out for notary and it hasn't come back yet. Trust me I have called them every day. When I called yesterday they STILL didnt have it in yet. I just broke down and pissed at the same time told them I'm done waiting. Just fax me my medical records and I will get the summary report later. I cant handle the pain any longer. She was sympathetic but that doesnt help the pain. I want to get things rolling at the mayo Clinic. I was chating with another friend and found out there is a Dr haislet in Minessota that can help me.Dr. Haislet holds membership in the Endometriosis Association, the World Endometriosis Association, International Pelvic Pain Society, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy and the North American Menopause Society. I called and they want my most recent medical records and I will get a call backfrom them as well. I'm hoping for better days and I was told he would help me control my pain as well. Sorry this is so long...I guess today is emotional day for me...lol..I just wanted to let you all know how I feel about you and the strength you have keeps me going..even if you are venting..I feel like I'm right with you all!!..Take Care..Hugs..xx Staci

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
