    Hey! I have the same symptoms and mine is endo. Pain in my right hip, radiates down the front of my leg and into my right knee. Sometimes pain on the sides of both of my hips and the front of both legs. Really bad periods. Cramps pretty much daily. Pain in my right shoulder that wouldn't go away no matter what I tried. If they think yours is endo or IBS, more tests are needed for a firm diagnosis. If you're in agony, definitely push to have all the tests done. Stay strong xo

      Hi Chellie

      Laura-Lee's right, it's best to get all the tests so you know what you're dealing with. For endo, the only absolute test is a laparoscopy.

      As to that terrible under your left ribs, someone else recently posted about that. If interested, scan back through endo posts for the last 2 weeks and you should find it. I will say to you what I said to that woman: that pain needs to be figured out. Docs need to make sure that it's not related to heart, lungs or stomach before anyone says it's endo. If you have the laparoscopy, tell doc/surgeon to look in that area for endo.

      Sorry, Chellie, I didn't mean to freak you out but I do hope you'll take that pain seriously. Well, take all the pains seriously, just keep in mind which other organs are near any particular pain.

      Emergency/casualty docs say that we all go to see them thinking every broken leg, every cold and headache are cancer, so you're not alone. I am sorry to have increased your worry!

      If you didn't already have those challenges, this disease alone could bring them all on. It is a wonder that any of us ever function at all. Just hang in there and make sure your doctor listens to you & works with you.
