Does anyone suffer from excessive sweating?

Does anyone suffer from excessive sweating?

I'm 29 years old and am about to have my fourth surgery for Endo in a span of two years. After my left ovary was removed in September, I began to sweat doing everything! Now I always have a fan on me inside the house, only wear tank tops, and blast the AC in the car when my husband says he's freezing. I understand that this is a lack of hormone production but just wanted to see if anyone had suggestions to help decrease the sweating? My surgery is on Tuesday and I am… read more

What kind of stuff tends to bring on cramps for you?

What kind of stuff tends to bring on cramps for you?

Any weird things that y’all notice make you cramp? Any foods or other known triggers you’re not sure happens to anyone else?

For example, if I’m sitting down almost every time I go to stand up I get mild (sometimes moderate) cramps. Just enough to know they’re there and to hurt. Also I notice a lot of times immediately after waking up i get mild cramping. Also those instances happen more frequently around my period but happen month long for the most part.

Rectal bleeding

Rectal bleeding

What is the rectal bleeding caused by endometriosis look like?
Is it obvious?
I don't have bleeding but some time after going to the bathroom I notice blood little spots on the toilet paper.
And I don't know if it is rectal bleeding or I just hurt myself because of constipation
And if it is rectal bleeding does it mean that I have endometriosis tissues inside my colon?
The doctor said that if the endometriosis is inside the colon then we can't remove it in the laparoscopy

Endometriosis and levels of estradiol

Endometriosis and levels of estradiol

I'm having surgery in 3 days and wondering what levels of estradiol is normal for someone with endo. My level was a 6...which is very abnormal regularly but I'd like to know if that has to do with the endo or are all my symptoms related to low estradiol?
