I feel like my symptoms are getting worse and at this point I’m not sure it’s endo. I’m scheduled for a lap in July but I’m worried about my symptoms. I now have daily bowel spasms, nausea, fatigue and pelvic pain. The severity and symptoms don’t sound like what I’ve heard from other people with endo. Thoughts?

Fatigue: https://endometriosis.net/symptoms/fatigue. This article talks about ways to work around fatigue for one of our advocates: https://endometriosis.net/living/fatigue-hacks.
Pelvic Pain: https://endometriosis.net/symptoms/pelvic-pain. We have a physical therapist that shared a video on how to reduce pelvic pain that you can see here: https://endometriosis.net/video/reduce-pelvic-pain as well.
I really hope that helps and that you have more low pain days than not before your lap in July. Have you tried to get in with your regular obgyn or specialist to discuss how to curb those symptoms in the meantime? Sending you so many good thoughts and vibes dear

Yes , distant hugs 🤗
When did you discover your endometriosis? What were your symptoms?
Unfortunately , I have not found a relief way for my symptoms . I've heard though from online searching some foods could trigger the information more like dairy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol ...so probably means around that monthly cycle to avoid those for sure . Like today , I was craving a smoothie 🥤 from the high heat outside usually get it with yogurt but I took out the dairy out of it . I'm currently approaching my period and haven't been feeling well at all . Diet has one main impact on an overall wellbeing's health. What have you done to relieve yours ?
The soonest they gave me for laproscopy was end of July and that can't come soon enough ! My preferred hospital of choice wasn't available till September! Oh well ! It will have to be at this other hospital ...
