So... over the last year and a half I've started to get odd pains. What I would call bowel pains, pains in the kidney region, a strange sharp bladder pain just in the mornings before I've urinated, and I went and got ultrasounds, bloods and all was fine. I've always had irregular bowel movements too.
I've never had heavy periods while on the pill but I've always had mild to moderate period pains (which I only just realised I shouldn't have been having at all).
Now, I've just come off the pill (at 36 years of age) after some twenty years on the pill (I was put on the pill for irregular periods at 14) with maybe a vague hope of pregnancy and those pains have got worse and seem to have been joined by other odd occurrences; I got my true period after only 4 weeks but a week before my period came I was bloated and the pain is still hanging around. I also had a temperature for a few hours and I've had that before with no idea why. I told my doc who is sending me to a gyno, but I feel so anxious and don't want to wait the two weeks.
I'm pretty worried it's endo, and a late stage because I had no real idea about it. I'd love to hear anything that might reassure or even about your experiences and whether there's any correlation between particular pain in certain areas and the various stages etc.
Thanks, sorry for the thesis...
