Endo and Other Health Conditions

Do you live with any other health conditions outside of endometriosis?

We asked our Facebook community, and here are just some of the many conditions mentioned:

Migraines, asthma, permanent inflammation, mental health disorders, chronic gastritis, complex regional pain syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome, arthritis, scoliosis, sjogrens, pcos, and anemia.

What other health conditions do you live with outside of endometriosis?

  1. This is such a good question! I was diagnosed with depression and IBS in high school, several years before anyone checked for endometriosis. The list grew in my 20s, 30s, and 40s. I’m now 41, and I’ve so far also been diagnosed with generalized anxiety, migraine, PMDD, allergies, non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, centralized pain, and periformis syndrome (when a muscle around the butt/tailbone gets inflamed.). I also dealt with severe insomnia off and on. - Keri (endometriosis.net team member)

    1. I have Fibromyalgia, RLS, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, IBS, heart issues that are trying to be diagnosed, constant headaches, mystery arthritis, and probably one or two more diseases yet to be diagnosed.

      1. I'm sad to hear that you both have so many similar diagnoses to me, but I know I'm also in good company! I have migraine, IBS, mast cell activation syndrome, dysautonomia, eczema, generalized anxiety disorder, depression, fibromyalgia, allodynia, and likely hypermobility. ~Katrina, Endometriosis.net Advocate

        1. Endometriosis was my first health condition. But since then, I have developed chronic migraine, fibromyalgia, IBS, PCOS, asthma, tachycardia, and allergies. I also deal with depression and anxiety. It is a lot to live with and even more to manage. - Amanda (team member)
