Endometriosis?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm an 18 year old female and for the last year, i have been suffering from increasingly severe abdominal and pelvic pain that can leave completly unable to function. This is especially true around the time of my periods, where i can be left crying in pain, unable to sleep and missing days at a time off college.

I have been to the doctors many times, and have gotten no where, until a physical exam a few weeks back showed up some 'questionable' findings and i am now having an ultra-sound next week. In the mean time i have been doing a little research of my own, and have discovered a lot about endometriosis and its symptoms, and i must say, it seems to explain a lot about what ive been feeling, the tiredness, the headaches, the nausea and of course, the crippling pelvic and back pain..

So i was wondering what your thoughts are on this? Could this be the explination? Are there links between coeliac and endometriosis?

Thanks for reading :)

nikky there is a connection between polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)and celiac's. I will see if I can find the article and post it for you.

Endometrisosis ,I am unsure of any connection

Your situation sounds like a complication of Celiac Disease, to me. Did you look up the list of complications associated with the Celiac Disease. Remember you were born with this disease. I do not know how long you have been treating this disease of yours but, it sounds like some complications are setting in on you. Check out the list and see if any of those condtions fits your situation, OK.

I have endo and also gluten free. I have also had severe pain that time of the month since I started at the age of 10. I finally found something to help with the pain. Wild yam cream. Hopefully that will help because gluten free didn't help like I had hoped it would. Good luck

Are you for real? Do you know what endometriosis is, Karl? I think it's a disease you can't have.

People are born with a chance of getting Celiac, they aren't born with full blown Celiac. Occasionally, babies have it but it's not like being born with a cleft palate or a heart murmur.

Do you take it in pill form or ? My mother and I had endro which didn't stop till a hysterectomy. My daughter has it and struggles every month. She is not gluten-free and isn't very inclined to go that way at this time. Has no other symptoms other than the endro so just looking for some natural relief for her.

It's a cream that you rub into different areas of your body. Like on the undersides of your upper arms, your breasts, your ovary areas, etc.

It has really helped me with the pain.

Karl,

I think you are misunderstanding the genetic factors in celiac disease. Just having the genes does not mean you have the disease. About 30% of the US population have the genes that are associated with celiac disease, but only about 1% actually have celiac disease. There are cases of identical twins where only one twin has celiac disease. In addition to having the genes, something must happen to trigger the disease. It is quite possible for a child to have celiac disease even though neither parent has the disease. There are numerous examples of that to be found on this board.

I posted this in one of your other topics, but it is equally relevant here. You are not born with celiac disease, only with a genetic possibility to develop it.

As others have mentioned... you are born with a genetic predisposition to coeliac, not the condition itself.. it has to be triggered, in my case this was by a bad virus when i was 14... ive been treating the condition for almost four years, and i am well aware of its complications

Here is a good site for info on the syndrome. As to the endometriosis I also had it. I do not know if it is associated with celiac or not. If you do have it and adhesions have formed they can do surgery to free up the scar tissue but the adhesions often will grow back.
