    My name is Sarrah, 29 years old, and I’ve always had painful cycles, but it wasn’t until 2016, that it started to become unbearable. My cycle would leave me doubled-over, crying in pain, throwing up, awful back pain with blinding migraines. Of course, I see a doctor, and nothings wrong. 2017 rolls around and a whole new set of symptoms begin in addition to the old ones. I start having horrible joint pain and pain through my whole body, like painful electric impulses. It hurts to walk on my feet and my fingers hurt to grab anything. Clothing even hurts to touch me. Ive been getting depressed during my cycle, which is also new. Now, its 2019, and I have all of those symptoms PLUS the past 3 months have been horrendous. I’ve been in the hospital for awful abdominal pain, past a 10. I’ve began having abnormal heavy period about 2 months ago, and this month I skipped it entirely and I’ve been so tired and my abdomen and back and body have hurt so much this month. I’m at my wits end. I’ve had sonograms and ultrasounds and “nothing is wrong with me ” according to doctors I just have “painful periods”. I can’t live like this, tylenol and ibuprofen don’t even phase it anymore. I don’t know much about endometriosis, but I’m hoping I can find help here ❤ thank you all

    Thank you so much for your help, I have mentioned checking for endometriosis, but I can’t get a doctor to take me seriously or listen. I’ve asked for them to check my hormones and for endometriosis, but I always day “I’m too young for that”… which is complete garbage. But no one will take me seriously. Any tips on getting help? I’m to the point of giving up. I’ve been to dr after dr and er visit after er. And has any natural alternatives helped?
