I'm only 17, almost 18, and have been experiencing 'knicker line' pain on the right side. I've had it for... well around 2 years now, maybe a little longer, not too sure.
Anyway, I've looked up symptoms but would prefer to hear it from people who experience it or know about it.
It's really sharp pain, which used to restrict me in terms of moving around. At some point it seemed to happen around a certain point during my period cycle, but other times seems pretty random.
My 'lovely' dr told me I was imagining it.
My sister developed the same pain a year after me and went to see the same dr, who happily sent her to get it checked out. They said it could be endometriosis but she chose not to be tested as she'd already had one baby and her pain wasn't that bad compared to mine. After 2 miscarriages she went on to have her 2nd baby and her pains all cleared up. CLearly the dr felt my pain was not as important because of my age.
(Oh, she did tell me to see a hip specialist up the road after pestering her, and he was confused because the pain isn't in my hip obviously!!!!)
Anyway, the pain is really my main issue. I used to get very bad bloating (looking 7 months pregnant) but that's improved so so so much the past months.
Am I being silly? Just tell me straight :) am I too young to be experiencing this and are my pains just nothing like my dr says?
Thanks for any help.
