Let’s talk endometriosis….because I think I might have it. Excruciatingly painful periods. Like nothing else. When I am on my period, it hurts to pee, and it hurts so bad to poop that I get lightheaded and almost pass out from the pain. I can’t really use tampons anymore either – they also hurt. Sitting upright for the first two days is pretty impossible because it hurts so badly to sit. And now I have found some bumps on my cervix. I know they could be anything – there are totally benign reasons they could be there, and there are the super scary reasons. But I know for a fact they haven’t always been there, and that I haven’t always had this kind of pain.
So, tell me folks who know about this, what do I need to know? And how do you manage the pain? I cannot seem to get a doctors appointment any time soon, so I need the internet to tell me what to do.
