Endometriosis Pain: Your Symptoms Are Real
Endometriosis pain is real, though it is often brushed off, misunderstood and mistreated.
A Common Story: Pain, Misunderstood
We hear these stories in our practice ALL THE TIME. Being an endo-sister myself, I have countless stories of my own to share. If you have endometriosis, you likely have stories too. The average diagnosis for endo is 7-10 years, which is too many years for someone to accumulate awful stories before getting the help they need.
Being Your Own Advocate
If you have been dealing with debilitating cycle related pain and are wondering if it might be endo, please don’t wait for someone to eventually diagnose it for you. Early diagnosis and intervention is key to minimizing damage to reproductive organs. If your doctor is not hearing you, it may be time to seek another doctor. Education and research are finally starting to make it’s way to the forefront. In the meantime: Endo warriors, your pain is real. We see you. We hear you. We are here for you.
If you have endo, or suspect you may, we invite you to give us a call at 619-512-9783. There are steps you can take to manage your symptoms naturally to reduce pain, inflammation and scarring.
Yours in good health,
❤️ Dr. Merritt Jones
