This is my first post here, but I am at a loss at this point. I started struggling with severe endo pain over a year ago and got a definitive diagnosis last summer when they did a laparoscopic incision surgery. The surgery and birth control they put me on after did not reduce my pain levels at all, and so my doctor recommended Depot Lupron.
I find yoga helpful but also too much pelvic opening during it can set the pain off for me. I have also recently changed my diet quite a lot, I’ve gone dairy free, sugar free and almost alcohol free and I have noticed an improvement in pain. Going gluten free can also help but I’m not 100% prepared for that yet. I have also found magnesium to be quite helpful because I get a lot of nerve pain. I have also heard good things about pelvic physiotheraphy which I would like to try too. I also try to exercise regularly but that is also a fine line with too much putting me into pain. I think there is so much that can be done without relying on drugs and it usually starts with diet!
Acupuncture has made a huge difference to my life
Obviously this is long term but I think some people have found relief from pain with acupuncture, heat pads and stretches.
