Endometriosis Awareness- My Story

I’m new here. I am a 24 year old female young adult living with this sucky disease. I am certainly happy to share my story. In the middle of two thousand and nineteen I started getting pretty ill. Fast forward many months to last year and I definitely suspected I had it. One of my attacks last April was really bad and left me unable to walk. The pain was that bad on top of things. I have since experienced two more high intensity pain attacks in August and December.
To keep my chronic pain and symptoms at bay I use a combination of pain relief options like a cosy hot water bottle, heating paid, otc pain relief medication, yoga, distraction and deep breathing. My main symptom is foot pain, I have sciatic endometriosis but I know of one other person who has it and she also is at risk of seizures.

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience @endowarrierqueen96 :) I'm sorry that endometriosis has caused you so many problems, but hopefully it's a little more manageable now?

    Let us know if you want to write a longer post raising awareness of endometriosis, and we can pop it in the Guest Blog categories. There's no pressure at all, but email us on community@scope.org.uk if you're interested!

    Yeah I’m happy to provide more details in a guest post on here. And to answer your other question nah not really although pain relief does help to control the pain. I’ll email you later.
