I have just started getting period like cramps when I exercise at times other than when I have my period. It seems this often happens the day after I eat dairy (usually ice-cream) in the evening. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? And if it might be a symptom of endometriosis or something else? I have no digestive issues like diarrhoea or constipation, so don't think I am lactose intolerant or anything, just lower abdo pain, just like when I get my period, when I go for a run or do cardio type exercise.
I likely have endometriosis as I have dysmenorhea and infertility, I'd just like to understamd what is happening to cause this pain when I exercise.
I will try cutting out dairy, but I'd still like to understand why it is happening. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it.
