LolloRosso, thanks for your story – mine is posted in general discussion too. I didn’t realise the connection with endo though! I was diagnosed 5 years ago after a laparoscopy discovered it but soon after I was also diagnosed with under active thyroid. I was a mess so trusted the doctor…until he prescribed cortisone? I thought it was strange and read into it…terrible stuff! So I got a second opinion and was basically told to go off all the hormones he had me on. She was furious he put me on cortisone and DHEA. So I went off them and after 7 months I still have issues but different to what I initially had 5 years prior.
Tired, overweight, stomach issues, period issues, itchy skin, fuzzy brain…the list goes on!
However I haven’t done anything about it because I’m so sick of doctors! I decided to go completely natural – and hence here I am in the world of candida! My naturapath thinks I’ve had candida for a very long time and all symptoms – including what you’ve mentioned – lead to it.
Oh it’s so tiring writing this – it’s taking me back to the feeling of hopelessness and as you said – feeling like you are losing your mind.
I will do this candida diet, change my lifestyle and then go and see about the endo but for now…one day at a time!
I have more research to do on the endometriosis connection though! So thanks – and good luck and keep in touch! Check out my blog if you wish! http://newlifeforme2011.blogspot.com/ 🙂 Nina
