I have been meaning to write this post for awhile now but felt that I couldn’t speak about it because I didn’t want to discuss it or write about it until I got my head round it first. Although I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2013, I am still finding out new things about it, new ways to cope with the pain, dietary changes, different pain relief and what to discuss with your consultant.
By sharing my endometriosis story, I am hoping that it will help other endometriosis suffers or encourage you to go to your GP if you feel you have the symptoms. I’d also like to point out that I am no ‘expert’ in endometriosis and may not state facts correctly (like I said, I’m still learning!). However, the information below have been gathered from the NHS Choices website as well as the Endometriosis UK website.
Also March 2016 is also Endometriosis Awareness Month and I hope by sharing my endometriosis story will help bring awareness to this chronic and debilitating condition.
