My cousins have endometriosis, im having all the symptoms, is it generic?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I been having all the symptoms of endo. The lower back pain, pelvic, stomach pain, bloating. I also have leg pain which im not sure is linked to endo but my pain is constant as ive had it non stop for a month now but feel worse when im on my period.

I have been to the doctors as he said it could be a possible ovarian cyst but he didnt really know so he is refering me for a ultrasound which wont be for a couple of weeks!! He did no other tests apart from a urine test (still waiting on results)

My mum has told me both my cousins have endo and im just wondering if its generic?

    I think it is. As my cousin had it too. Hers was really bad. Luckily I caught mine quite early and managed to get rid of it. The only thing that can confirm endo is a laparoscopic procedure. An ultrasound will not confirm endo.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi I think it could be but if your being scanned for a cyst don't let them ignore your pain try getting them to give you a ca125 blood test this is an indicator they should not ignore I went though it for years then told possible dermoid cyst until then it grew they removed my left ovary and tube with the cyst and found out it was a rare ovarian cancer. . I've just had my other ovary removed as got more cysts good luck ..find my page wombles small cell ovarian cancer awareness and fight on facebook if you can xx
