I have back ache for 30 years. It was only last year that I did something about it. I was diagnosed with endometriosis last July. According to my doctor the back ache isn't to do with having endometriosis but not being given a diagnosis as to what is causing my back pain. I have eventually been referred to a back pain clinic which I was waiting for for two months. I went back to the doctors and just happened to mention I was waiting for the referral from the back pain clinic and the doctor said I will just check to see if it has been sent yet! No it hadn't been sent. So I was waiting two months for nothing. I have lower back pain all the time but it gets worse when I am standing still like when I'm preparing breakfast because I care for my mum and dad. My mum keeps on going on about her back ache which gets me cross because she won't ask the doctor for any pain relief for it.
