Good GP = Good Referral = Good Care
Don't doubt the hot water bottle: "My heat pad or hot water bottle is a godsend. The heat helps any muscular cramps and contractions" Aimee uses heat pads that strap on with Velcro but wears them the wrong way round to get the heat on the pain source lasting hours.
Take it easy and be OK with that: "I have to remind myself it is is OK to do the minimal during a flare. It's hard not to feel guilt but if I've had to take strong pain relief and still struggling with the pain, sometimes there's nothing else for it than climbing back into bed or having a duvet day."
GP: "Try to get a GP that understands endometriosis or at the very least gynaecology-related problems and can help with referrals, sick notes, prescriptions, and even accommodate with emergency appointments if symptoms are severe."
