I have several conditions that have developed in my reproductive years and I believe Most of them are related directly to having endometriosis. In my internet searches I have found that other women also have similar or the same conditions. I am always trying to find the link. And I know alot of us are too. So if you can share some atypical symptoms, perhaps we can somehow find a connection between… read more
I have Raynauds too. When I was 16 my rheumatologist said that it is usually accompanied by an autoimmune disease. But I was tested for everything under the sun and it was all negative. Here in the US endo isn't considered an autoimmune disease yet. But I believe it is. I think I would be diagnosed with fibromyalgia and CFS but I don't even bother telling my doctor about my symptoms. They just think I'm crazy.
Yes. I had a lap. I know the pmdd is related because its part having hormone problems. The food allergy, I don't know....
I have been diagnosed w ibs/food sensitivies since dealing with endo. have u had the laparoscopic yet, maybe some of those issues are endo symptoms misdiagnosed. I'm not a doc so idk but I feel like when I've gone to each doc to treat a specific issue, they don't tie the dots. I know w endo I've also gotten full body pain. If I do anything at all active, take a short walk, move stuff at work, my legs, hips, and lower back ache for days. I'm trying to continue the walking bc it helps w my anxiety and depression but it's gets disheartening when normal activities now hurt. U might try acupuncture and physical therapy. Those are my next steps.
I have PMDD and I think I developed a food allergy recently.
I was just about to ask a similar question about related conditions and found this! I know it was posted some time ago, but I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006 and Raynauds about a year later. I've only known about the endo for five years but looking back I think I had some (possibly atypical) symptoms from day one. All female members of my immediate family have multiple AI disorders so we think they're all just branches of the same tree.
