I haven't been diagnosed with Endometriosis but it wouldn't let me post unless I joined the group so I did.
So I'll give the rundown of what's been going on, so it makes since why i'm posting.
Ever sense last december I've had recurrent UTI's and last month I had another one that was strep apparently and they didn't call me to switch antibiotics so I was on bacterium for that whole week and then a month later December 21st I had another infection and went in and they put me on another antibiotic Kepflex then that didn't work and I called them and said it wasn't working where they admitted they didn't really know what was up they just guessed so I went to the ER christmas eve and they said it wasn't that bad it was slight and switched me on to Cipro for three days that worked for the infection but then I got a message from the urgent care doctor i saw on the 21st who said it wasn't an infection and to go to an OB/GYN as they think I needed to see one. For the last few months I had tried to get into an appointment with the OB/GYN that I had only ever saw once and they kept delaying it saying it's probably just your depo shot which was because I always had painful menstrual cycles and dismissed it and then the urgent care to actually get my file reviewed had to send in another referral where they just keep saying they are triaging it but haven't contacted me and then New years eve I went in to a doctor who was a primary care physician who evaluated me and pressed down on my lower abdomen and when I said i also had painful menstural cycles to the point I stayed home, stayed in bed, was always in intense pain they said it added up to sounding like endometriosis and so i message the doctor and they dismissed it again and said oh your symptoms don't seem to add up to endometriosis when you get in with a doctor they can talk with you about this and the only way to actually diagnose is to go in surgically and I know the surgically part is true but they haven't seen me for months and haven't gotten me in at all and they are trying to tell me that it doesn't add up and I'm in constant pain right now. So I plan on looking for a different OB/GYn who will actually get me in to see them as these ones are trying to say what the primary physician said doesn't add up when they haven't seen me or evaluated me. So I'm looking for a different one. But what I said with terrible pain and bad cramps growing up and horrible at fighting off infections, has anybody else gone through this and went through seeing tons of doctors who keep telling you there's nothing wrong with you even though you know that something's up? I mean anybody with endometriosis do you find these symptoms line up with it a little?
