It’s sad how dismiss the women’s complaints thinking they are exaggerating or that they have some better pain tolerance so they should just take in... periods cramps suck but it shouldn’t torture you or make you faint, believe in your experience and don’t ever think you are making it up, millions of women share your experience.
I’m sick of hearing “they’ll make you think your pain is in your head.” No. It’s your responsibility to say, I think you’re missing something, I’m having a lot of pain “HERE” and indicate where. Women complain about doctors ignoring their pain or minimizing it, but their fucking job is literally to maximize your health so chill out, tell them everything, be organized with it
Oh my God... i need to search more of this... i may have been wrongly diagnosed with pcos "symptoms" .. n acc to doctors ,my symptoms didnt even match the criteria for pcos. But whatever halsey just said I have also been through that kind of pain wd periods since forever... to the point of puking evrytime. People told me to toughen up n just take a pain killer... but i used to feel like d pain of all my bones breaking all at once wen am down
This was my story w/ the fibroids. No Doctor really knew what was going on. And partially because they weren’t listening to me. Then one of the Doctors I reached out to (seeking a new Provider) returned back to the states from her vacation. And Dx me over the ph. - just from review of my sigs & symptoms. And all diagnostic testing confirmed prognosis. But the care Providers were randomly guesstimating what they thought was wrong w/ me. Until God sent that one Doctor my way. Then we could start the applicable care regiment.
I'm so disappointed in reading these drug comments, coke has NOTHING to do with endometriosis. You have no idea what it's like to have doctors make you feel like your pain is not there. How doctors seem to believe your pain is fake and your limping is an act, how they make you feel like you're crazy and that the chronic pelvic pain in your ovaries is act and all in your head, those who accuse her of drugs should be ashamed of yourselves, you have no idea what pain is like until you live it yourself
going through pain...doing shows..knowing you had a miscarriage and uplifting yourself...ufff...and Spreading love and messages and giving inspiration through music worldwide...yes we stan ! we stan a strong woman , we stan an amazing artist 😍😍
i feel for her shes about the same age as i was when i had a hysterectomy due to endoetriosis. and still have to have surgery to remove scar tissue... i hate it. but she can still put on a show and i hope it doesnt result that way for her.
There is seriously something wrong with medicine. The problem is there are humans behind life making decisions. They have egos, they think they're smarter and failing that - they minimize your account when THEY can't find an answer for what is making you sick. I was born with a genetic blood disorder and idiot doctors discounted my issues for years. I finally got sick of their bullshit. You have to take your health care into your own hands. Demand tests and if they won't listen, get someone who will. Btw the genetic disorder was easily diagnosisable but because I'm black they thought the likelyhood that I had it was low. They failed to ask if I was mixed...til I got a new doctor who asked my heredity and she said Aha! This is what I think you have and admitted that ignorance played a part in my misdiagnosis. That isn't science failing...that is ego, intelligence, power and prejudice.
Thanks to Halsey for speaking up on her struggles with Endometriosis and what it's like for women who are diagnosed with this horrible disease. By the time I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, I was 34 and had gone through 4 surgeries and also a hysterectomy so it's good to keep pushing doctor if you have any symptoms of Endo. You know your body better than anyone - especially a doctor so continue pushing for a diagnosis and more tests to come up with a diagnosis.
Mine went away with Laparscopy surgery in 1996 when the doctors found a cyst on my ovaries then found out when they looked in the scope while I was under that I was covered in a cob web of the endometriosis. The cyst was a blood cyst related to Endometriosis. They lasered off all of the webbing and removed the cyst. Once I woke up, all my mystery symptoms went away and i've been find since.
Please support me and everyone else who suffers from this dreadful illness by signing and sharing this petiton 💛
Hearing her story makes me so angry because it sounds so similar to mine and friends of mine with endometriosis! We’ve got to do better with this. I literally fainted in the shower. Thank goodness my husband was home. It took years to diagnose me with stage 4 endometriosis. I’m so sad she has to go through this. I’m sad we all have to go through this. Smh
At 37 years old I made the decision to have my womb and then some months later ovaries removed. I have not looked back since.
I am now 52 this years end and I finally have a life. I have been blessed to have found a job I like. And God bless McDonald's for giving me that chance.
I finally was surgically diagnosed. After 2 months of bleeding and pain from ruptured ovarian cyst. I finally had a doctor who was willing to do surgery. Thank god. I had an ablation done so far so good, but I still get pretty sick with my cycle. I was told for many years it was in my head, pretty much what she had happen. I would pass out from the pain and bleeding. My blood pressure would drop. The doctor said I have fainting spells. Thank goodness I have the proper DX.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis via lap iv passed out so many times through pain and now iv got fibromyalgia as well. I’m so sorry for what you have been through iv had a miscarriage and a ectopic and lost a lil boy it’s so hard but luckily I have found a lovely doctor and a amazing husband who looks after me 24/7. But before I was diagnosed I was told it was in my head because I suffer with mental health problems but that was only by one doctor but made me feel like crap but did get a apology after surgery though.
Men will never understand how awful period pain can get. I don't know if I have endometriosis, but considering the pain I've been suffering from for 7 years almost every month at least once, I fear it is that. Sometimes the pain is durable, even when I have to take a pill. But sometimes it's like an attack that numbs me mentally and physically. Last time it happened 3 months ago, where I was sitting on my kitchen floor like a mess struggling not to faint from the pain and crying in agony, having to take two painkillers to stop it, chewing one bite of bread for 5 minutes unable to swallow it how weak I was. Once my arms and legs got numb, it was horrible. What's concerning me is how it will affect my work, how tolerant my professional surrounding will be when attacks happen. It's horrible enough at home or when I can just leave wherever I am, but I don't won't to lose my job because of this hell.
I can totally relate! I hear you and i feel all your pain. It is really irritating when you explain people your pain level, they see you faint, they see you vomit but they yet give you that look and think to themselves or tell you “oh its just that time of the month just tolerate it, everyone goes through the same thing”. No thats not true and not everyone goes through the same level of pain us with endometriosis experience. I haven’t given birth but my pain during my monthly period is so much that i will bet that giving birth is much easier than going through this pain. I will not walk out of my house without a bag of pads and my ibuprofen pills. I recently got diagnosed with it i am not sure what stage it is yet as i have to still go see my OBGYN but i have dealt with this issue for the past 14 years since age of 16. This pain has taken away my confidence, my life and my young happy years for the past 14 years, every month, for at least 3 days.
I recently had gallbladder surgery and i am not quite sure if the stone there was because if consuming too much ibuprofen or not but i know for a fact this medicine will one day cost me my kidneys!
I really relate to what she said about doctors playing down pain, especially when you're on your period. I don't have endometriosis, which I am very thankful for (however a lot of other conditions with chronic pain symptoms). When I was 13, at Halloween that year I had been extremely ill for around 4 days, vomiting constantly, couldn't move or speak I was crying and screaming from the pain so badly, I couldn't eat or drink anything and the pain in my abdomen was so severe that I couldn't even bear watching anything or texting, literally doing nothing other than lying in bed crying. I happened to be on my period, however the pain was very distinctly unrelated as I know what my own periods are like, I'd started having them when I was 11. My mum finally took me to the hospital as I wasn't getting better and even though I could barely tell the doctors what was wrong because of the pain, I had to constantly defend myself when they suggested that it was possibly 'just a bad period'. It was infuriating. It turned out I had severe appendicitis and was very dangerously dehydrated, yet for hours they tried to pawn it all off on being a bad period and that I had a low pain tolerance. My fucking ass.
Jesus cured me. Not a religious nut. I just tried praying and figured if the Bible was true it would work and my simple prayer worked. Jesus is amazing! My periods normalized from extreme pain and nausea vomiting to almost no pain and sometimes no pain what's so ever.
My respect level for her just went through the roof. Having had two miscarriages before I cannot begin to imagine being in front of thousands of people in the middle of it and still having to compose yourself. I don’t even know what to say about that.
my mother had endometriosis and had hemorging and almost died during surgery. with that being said, you can control this with diet, dairy products and meat products increase your chances of cervical cancers and diseases such as this for women. I've done extensive research and i too suffered from really bad periods and it wasn't until I quit taking hormonal birth control and switched to a vegan lifestyle that i no longer cramped or bled for weeks at a time..
CAYANNE PEPPER CAN HELP TO 1 TEASPOON IN WATER. BUT START OFF WITH SMALLER AMOUNT OF CAYANNE PEPPER. MIX IT WITH A LITTLE BIT OF WATER AND DRINK IT FAST AND DRINK SOMETHING AFTER BECAUSE IT IS HOT BUT IT WORK. ITS GOING TO PROBABLY MAKE YOUR CHEST FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE HEARTBURN AND YOU WILL FEEL HOT. BUT IT WORKS. TAKE IT 3 TIMES A DAY. FYI IT STILL WORKED FOR ME EVEN THOUGH I TOOK IT ONCE A DAY.
