We All Know About The Physical Pain, But What About The Mental Pain?

We All Know About The Physical Pain, But What About The Mental Pain?

Have any of you experience an emotional spiral? Waves of emotions, upset for no particular reason, crying and you don’t know the reason why?

I’m not on any meds although when I was on some couple years ago to help with the Endo pain, my mental state was at a very bad place to where I started to feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I finally got myself off it over a year ago and I’m finally starting to feel myself again.

Yes it’s common to have with… read more

Link Between Endo, Fibroids, And Cysts

Link Between Endo, Fibroids, And Cysts

Hi, I’m brand new to the community so please forgive if it’s been asked; I didn’t find the answer.

Has anyone seen a link between endo, uterine fibroids, and ovarian cysts?

I’ve been dealing with this for 20 years and recently was diagnosed and I’m wondering if my uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts could have been an indication... if a good doctor could have caught it sooner. I’ve been dealing with the VA for 20 years and I recently was able to go to Hershey med where they… read more

Yes, and so many doctors don't know enough about endo to even suspect it, let alone diagnose it. Fibroids are also created from too much estrogen in the… read more

Will I Still Have A Big Endo Bump After Laproscopic Excision Surgery?

Will I Still Have A Big Endo Bump After Laproscopic Excision Surgery?

Hello,

I am naturally slimmer, and with these 2 very large endometriomas (8cm and 6cm) my lower tummy is pretty round. I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, had excision surgery and noticed a change? I honestly just want to wear my slimmer fitting dresses again and not look 5 months pregnant.

Thanks so much in advance for your input. xoxo

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Oh, I was saying that I didn't have much of a bump, but it helped with the swelling and scar tissue under my incisions. So I don't know if it can help… read more

How Do You Cope Mentally With Endometriosis?

How Do You Cope Mentally With Endometriosis?

I’ve had endometriosis for 8 years. It’s nothing new to me. But I’ve been really struggling mentally with it all lately. I feel completely hopeless. Doctors are telling me there isn’t much more they can do for me anymore. My symptoms are bad all the time and I feel like I’m not living anymore.
I want to know what I can do to get through this. I’m struggling to stay positive

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I'm so sorry. I'm a big believer in both holistic approach but also excision surgery. I've had 2 excision surgeries and my pain is about 97% gone. I… read more

Hi There. I Was Wondering If Anyone Has Adrenal Fatigue.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Yes... I had it... it’s gotten a lot better since I reduced my stress. The stress was caused by my job and my over-all health. Not to mention Endo… read more
