For years, I dealt with period pain. Horrendous pain! Excruciating! I was told over and over again that I was being dramatic and that I was overreacting. That it wasn't that bad. I was in so much pain that I would throw up and I would be unable to get up. When I was 30, I went to the E.R. because I felt like my insides were falling out. I was told then, that I have endometriosis and cysts on my ovaries.
Every doctor wants to do birth control. I've done birth control and it didn't help. I've told them that and it's still something they want to try. I've had my tubes tied after having my kids so certain types of birth control aren't available. I want a hysterectomy and I've begged for a hysterectomy. I've been told no over and over. I never know when my period will be horrific. When it is, I can't work and can barely function. After getting the pain to stop, I get extremely tired. Like, I can barely keep my eyes open, tired.
Have you altered your diet to try and reduce your endometriosis symptoms? If so, did it help?
