:(I am currently a 23 yr. old full time college student and I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 21 after going through and exauhsting every other option includin hormone treaments, seeing secialists who performed outpatient procedures, pain medications, and even surgery. After surgery and a few moe attempts at some other medications I decided to stop everything because it just seem to be doing more harm than good (which it didnt really help at all). Over the past year I have been in and out of the emergency room. The first visit started was for these extreme sharp and continuous anal spasms that prevented me from even being able to get out of bed on my own when the medics came. All of the other times it was for this intense pain that runs from my low ab (on top of my cramps) all the way into my shoulder. I only get these pains during my period and they have exhausted the possibility of it being my gaullbladder. They have no clue wht it could be, and I believe they prob, think im a junkie just trying to get a fix with as many times as I have been in the ER (which is not the case). The last visit to the ER was for a miscarriage and some pain. They found a cyst on my ovary and that was it. The ER dr. said that my side pain pay be caused by my diaphragm but it seems like no doctor wants to do anything to actually find out what the real problem is and I can not keep going on like I am with the pain, missing school and work along with pumping myself with painkillers so i can walk straight up and not hunched over from the pain. I need help!
