Endometriosis and Intercycstial Cystitis

Jul 05, 2017 10:23 PM

Anyone out there struggling with both of these diagnoses?
I'm having a really difficult time not only with the physical but also with the mindfuck that appears to happen everyday.
Started seeing a psychiatrist last month but the meds haven't kicked in yet, they put me on a pretty strong anti depressant. Lexapro, they just upped my dose again and I'm not having much faith in this. My physical symptoms differ everyday as well some days are totally manageable and others are just so debilitating. 😡😖😟 I guess I'm just looking for common ground and support.

I had my endometrial lining removed because of excruciating pain during menstruation, but they didn't find endometrium lining elsewhere. I also have interstitial cystitis. I can commiserate.

MandaJane how old are you , round about ? My mom had a partial hysterectomy four year after I was born .( I'm the youngest of four. ) to combat that problem. A decade later she had her ovaries removed due to cysts [ having had a cyst on my right one several years ago ] I understand just how excruciatingly painful they are
