So many of us deal with pain that would debilitate our lives, if we weren't able to sustain ourselves with some sort of medication to tackle the flair up. But what works the best?
Most of my doctors have put me on Tramadol first and Oxycodone when I explain how Tramadol doesn't do much for my pain. As well as nerve blockers and NSAIDS (Which I limit always to, when needed). HOWEVER, society has a different view on pain medication and I'm wondering if this has made… read more
I am having surgery to remove the scar tissue and while I am asleep, they want to put an IUD in as well. I am super nervous about the IUD and want to know if there are side effects, and if the IUD is a good route to go.
My doctor says its impossible to have endometriosis symptoms everyday. He says the pain should only be on my period. Guaranteed its worse on my period but I'm in pain and exhausted everyday :( does anyone else suffer everyday of the month and if so how are you managing things? I'm really struggling to get up on a morning and carry out my daily routine, I feel like if I don't at least sort out my fatigue some how I will lose my career any advice would be great. Thanks in… read more
I have always been very curious to know the difference between endometriosis pain and pregnancy pain. After I heal from my surgery on Thursday I will be trying to get pregnant. I would like to know what to expect when it comes to labor pain. It may sound weird but I feel like once I go though labor I can more accurately describe my pain level to people. I can say that it feels like someone is stabbing my right ovary with a dull red hot icepick but I have never actually been… read more
I have a vaporizer that I use on extremely bad days and a family member who is a chef has begun working with edibles. So far I've found vaporized CBD oil most effective without the red eyes and "stoned" feeling, but am new to it's medicinal uses and would love to hear others experiences with various medicinal marijuana products. Thank you in advance as I know this particular topic can be "taboo"
Endometriosis was removed 1 year ago, there has been no change in my pain or bleeding. Please read 'My Story' for more detail. Please help.
What are your thoughts on medical marijuana for pain management? I live in NY and they are opening 3 dispensaries in the works just looking at different options.
I had Laparoscopy surgery 6 weeks ago. They lysed a lot of adhesions that were on the bowel. I was feeling fine but the last week I am experiencing pain again. I have been told that they will come back but I was wondering if anyone has experienced this?
Reading about everyone's experiences I see that many people have been diagnosed with bowel endometriosos. I was just wondering how this was diagnosed? I have been having GI symptoms ever since I was diagnosed with endometriosis and my doctor recommended seeing a surgeon for a colonoscopy.I'm a bit apprehensive because she mentioned things like ulcerative colitis. Any feedback about any of your experiences would be appreciated:)
Hi there, i was just wondering how long it took for some of you ladies to be diagnosed for me it was 6 years and am currently sueing my old womans health doctor for negligence. She kept saying it was normal period pains and irregular period and i was normal. I just want to hear some of my endosisters stories so can get an idea on what is normal and what isnt for waiting. Also what ages were you diagnosed.
