So I'm relatively new here, and I generally don't do social media with any kind of consistency, so we'll see how this goes. I've suffered with chronic headaches and migraines for years and have recently being in a revolving door of different doctors offices for persistent pelvic and abdominal pain, as well as physical therapy for sciatica. I've been doing my own research, since the doctors have repeatedly told me that I shouldn't be in as much pain as I am, and have found that almost all my symptoms seem to be consistent with endometriosis. The issue isn't that my doctors didn't believe me, in fact they slapped me right on birth control (although told me to take the placebo week for the first month, during which death would've been preferable), but it's almost like they took my word for it, because I was told that they would not be performing any diagnostic surgeries since they "don't do that anymore." Has anybody else had experience with this? Should I try to fight for the surgery? I have kaiser insurance if that makes a difference.
P. S. The pill only seems to be alleviating my symptoms somewhat. The cramps are milder for sure, but the migraines are worse and I'm still having trouble walking due to hip pain. So if anybody else has undergone hormone therapy for endo, I'd be interested in your experience as well.
