So I know we all know that severe cramps are symptoms of endo, but I’m wondering what other symptoms are you have?
My symptoms start a few days before with some cramping. Then, the first two days :af: are heavy bleeding, and the worst with heartburn, back pain, nausea, sometimes diarrhea and serious flu-like symptoms. Like body aches, chills, etc. The whole thing lasts a week–then after the bleeding ends it’s phase II. A band of pain that wraps around my lower abdomen and wraps to my back, and nothing including massage, rest helps. It hurts to stand and walk. That second phase is relatively new in the past year or so. At first I thought it was back pain reactive to my muscles getting sore from dealing with the cramps but now I’m sure it’s a direct spread of endo.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anyone else have more than the typical symptoms to share?
