The symptoms I get usually starts a couple weeks before my periods. I thought at first it could be PMDD but I'm been leaning towards Endo more. I'm 28 year old female, never had sex. I am planning on going to the drs but I would like a few opinions. I just have gotten done with my period but I'm still getting some of the symptoms but not as bad.

    Feeling tension
    panic attacks (had to go to the ER one time)
    mood swings (crying, funk, not happy)
    Insomnia (have sometimes trouble sleeping)
    Sleeping more than Usual sometimes (when I don't have anything to do for the day, the other day I slept 7am to 3 pm without waking up. )
    feeling overwhelmed
    sometimes breast tenderness or pain
    heart palpitations
    joint and muscle pain
    an altered view of one body
    abdominal pain
    constipation (that sometimes I can hardly move or stand up strait)
    sometime vomit but not to often.
    fatigue all the time
    heavy periods
    loss of appetite( I used to able to eat a lot, but I've been getting full to early)
    clumsy/loose balance
    pelvic tense/itchy
    thrush on tongue
    Lump in throat
    swollen gland on neck(gone now, thought it was abscessed tooth but it wasn't)

    Hi cmm14513, the only way to be diagnosed with endometriosis is by laparoscopic surgery. Ultrasounds can show cysts or your obgyn can sometimes feel cysts during pelvic exams but there are many types of cysts and not all are due to endo. And of course there are other things that go along with endo but your symptoms could really be anything so the best thing to do is talk to you doctor and they will go from there. Good luck
