What to do when I think I have endometriosis but doctor won’t evaluate further?
I have been having strange symptoms for a while now. From recurrent yeast infections to now very sharp pinpoint cramps mostly in one spot on the right pelvic region. It has radiated to the left as well. I have bloating, gas, some minor back pain. Some mild rib cramps, tender when I press down on stomach. Right hip pain, feels muscular. Sometimes feels like it shoots to my inner thigh. It’s gotten worse the last 2 months. I thought kidney stones since I had them before.
I think my mother had endometriosis undiagnosed because she had awful periods where she had to miss school. I was lucky enough I never had that issue. My periods were always regular and occasionally day 1 could be painful but nothing some ibuprofen can’t fix. My gynecologist said she doesn’t suspect endometriosis, since my ultrasound didn’t show chocolate cysts, it deep scarring. I just feel off and am having a hard time accepting everything is fine. My pain is mild but annoying. It’s not excruciating. I’m just worried the only way to have someone take you seriously is to either be in excruciating pain, or have issues conceiving. I don’t know what to do. Wait and see?
