Hi <3 FIRST, I hate that it’s been happening for so long. This is sadly a reality for us. I know it all too well. I suffered from ALL of these symptoms for over 12 years and then finally was diagnosed with endometriosis. I will say this sounds very, very close to my endo pain.

I would get SHARP pains and almost like numbing pains. I promise you that you are NOT alone and that their symptoms are dead on to mine. I wrote about my experience here. 

Also, “It’s almost like I can never fully articulate my symptoms and therefore cannot get the proper help/answers from a doctor.” I highly recommend creating a timeline. I did that for my journey. Also if they are listening – MOVE ON. Find someone who will! I promise you it’s worth it when you find someone.

Here for YOU!
