I AM 21 YEARS OLD. I HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS WHICH I JUST RECENTLY FOUND OUT IS AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. I HAVE BEEN HAVING ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS LATELY AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.

HERE ARE MY SYMPTOMS:

1-ABDOMINAL PAIN SOMETIMES SEVERE
2-CONSTANT LOWER BACK PAIN-AT TIMES SEVERE AS WELL
3-HIP AND LEG PAIN
4-HEADACHES EVERYDAY ALMOST
5-ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION
6-LOSS OF PUBIC HAIR
7-HEART PALPITATIONS
8-DIZZINESS
9-HEAD TINGLING
10-UPPER LEFT ABDOMINAL PAIN
11-NASUEA
12-OCCASIONAL DIARRHEA
13-TIRED MOST OF THE TIME


THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A WHILE BUT SOME OF THE SYMPTOMS JUST STARTED IN THE LAST MONTH OR TWO. i AM VERY CONCERNED AND EAGER TO FIND OUT WHAT IT COULD BE AND WHAT STEPS I NEED TO TAKE TO GET A QUICK DIAGNOSIS. IF YOU HAVE ANY OPINIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THEM NO MATTER WHAT THEY MAY BE. I AM DESPERATE FOR AN ANSWER. I DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE AND SO I DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE DOCTOR IF IT IS MOST LIKELY NOT SERIOUS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.

ALSO I'VE BEEN GETTING ALOT OF UNEXPLAINED BRUISES ON MY LEGS AND MY GUMS HAVE BEEN BLEEDING ALOT LATELY. IT DOESN'T COME FROM BRUSHING IT JUST HAPPENS ON IT'S OWN. I AM STARTING TO GET VERY SCARED ABOUT THIS AND I DON'T HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE SO I NEED IDEAS SO I DON'T WASTE MONEY ON THINGS I DON'T FEEL ARE POSSIBILITY'S UNLESS I HAVE TO. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

You might trywebmd.comalso freeMedicalCamps.comyour local county health department, your church.or google (with the quotes)"medical clinic" freeyour symptoms do seem to be something you ought to see a professional about. Don't guess, don't wait. Things only get worse over time if you neglect them.I wish you well.

  • First and foremost, I would suggest that you look into what kind of help you can get from your county for medical treatment. If you are having severe symptoms, your health is #1. Not any amount of money can measure up to being healthy. The bruises and bleeding gums could be a problem with your liver. I strongly recommend that you get into see a doctor as soon as possible.
