Warm sensations in side


Hi,
I'm new here. I have been dealing with endo for many, many years now, and my doctors are unfortunately very unhelpful when it comes to discussing symptoms and my concerns.
I was wondering if anyone else ever gets warm sensations under their skin from endo. I have had occasional pain with ovulation in my right side around and at my lower ribs. Sometimes this is accompanied, with or without any pain, by a warm (not burning, just very warm) sensation at my lower right ribs.
Does anyone else ever experience this?
Thank you!

  1. Hi , I can completely relate to the warm sensation you describe. Often that’s how some of my discomfort feels like. I am sorry your doctors are not being very supportive. Have you spoken to an endometriosis specialist? They would probably be better suited to provide you with a reason for your discomfort. 
I know it sounds like a tough ordeal, but my advice would be that you seek help outside of your current doctors. Whenever I’ve felt dismissed by a doctor, I’ve gone to a different one, until I find one that actually listens to me. I hope this helps - Jessie (team member)

    1. Hi . I'm a little late to this response, but I definitely know what you're talking about. Sometimes I'll get a warm sensation under the skin and it'll also itch. My doctors haven't really given me a good explanation, but they told me it's likely related to nerve issues. I also have a lot of other weird skin sensations. I went on an antidepressant called Cymbalta, which controls overactive nerve signals, and it did help with my weird warm, burning, or tingling sensations. I've been off of it for a few months, and, so far, I haven't had those issues again. I'm hoping you find some answers. Keep us updated on your progress! - Keri (endometriosis.net team member)
