Welcome, Amy. Sounds like you may have the old one-two punch, and it's good that you will consult with your gyn.I'm an IBS and endometriosis veteran. Was diagnosed with IBS about 24 years ago. Have had endometriosis for about 15 years now. I've had several laparoscopies for the endometriosis. The kicker for me is that the worst endo is actually on my intestine, so the two disorders aggravate each other tremendously. (I also have a thyroid disorder, since 1991. Basically, if I were a car, I would have been junked ages ago.)The worst endometriosis pain for me has always been during ovulation. I could predict my period from the ovulation pain. Still pretty much can. The so-called treatments for endo are lousy, and if you wind up being diagnosed with endo (which can only be done through a lap), there's a lot of information and support on the web for you. I can direct you to some sites if you get to that point. Just post and ask me, and I'll point you in the right direction.I have a wonderful gyn, but he didn't think I had endo at first. This, however, was years ago, when less was known. He thought the pain I had at ovulation was the release of the egg irritating my irritable bowel. We now know, of course, better.I've got endo pretty bad, and am on strong pain meds. I hope you don't have endo, but if you suspect it, knowledge is power.Amy, please reach out to someone close to you if suicide is truly something you've considered. I understand the desperation and the pain and how it can drive you to desperate thoughts. But if you feel those thoughts may become action, you MUST not ignore this. You are worth fighting for, so fight for yourself, hon. Get whatever help you need, and whatever answers you need.You deserve better. Please keep us posted.
