Endometriosis and gas – endometriosis forum – ehealthforum electricity laws uk

hi! i felt a little better after reading your comment. I thought i was the only person going through this horrible symptom. I am suffering from endo for the past few years. I have been in horrible pain for the last two days, first day of period was fine. But that day, i had to eat some heavy foods that were fried, and some bread made with wheat, some nice friends had invited us over. I hated to excuse myself because of having my period. I also didn’t want my husband end up not going because of me.So i went. That day middle of the night, i woke up with horrible sharp pain in my abdomen that lasted for hours. I could not sit, stand, or sleep for few hours. Finally my husband gave me some homeopathic medication, that cured it and i fell asleep. Got up next morning with pain this time it comes and goes and comes and goes lasted through out the day. I still have it and ‘m on my third day of period. I ate something and it came back. It comes and goes. it put me to bed all day yesterday because i couldnt even stand on my feet. I felt nauseous. The sad thing is none in your family can understand how you are feeling. They just think it as usual symptoms of period. It brought me tears going through this horrible pain. Yes gas is a predominant symptom of endometriosis as my experience shows. This is not the first time i faced it, many times before too.So watch what you eat before a few days , during , and after a couple days of menstruation. The lesson I learned. Eat light and easy to digest foods like soups and veges. See if that helps. Abstain from fried and food that feels heavy to the stomach. Drink plenty of good source of liquids like organic fruit juices and water. I am determined to do that based on my research on it. Hope this helps you in some way.

I think you’ve answered my question, because I’ve been experiencing crazy and unberable gas/ pain during my period. Last month I had a few pieces of cheese and a piece of cake and went 2 sleep woke up in the middle of the night screaming…I couldn’t sleep, walk, or sit I eneded up taking every med I could get my hands on in order to get through the night. I had a final the next day, I ended up going to the ER because the pain kept coming and going and u know what they diagnosed me with : anxiety and depression. Gave me birth control to take with an anti anxiety because supposedly stress has alot to do with painful periods. I absolutely refuse to believe stress alone causes such excrusiating pain. I was wondering did u get on birth control at all? and has it helped?

I hate it when doctors prescribe antidepressants and antianxiety medications when they don’t know what the problem is. I hate being treated for symptoms! Don’t take the anxiety/depression meds. I can assure you they WILL cause more problems than they can cure!! Keep trying to find out what is causing this pain. It is your body and nobody else knows it like you do or will fight for it like you.

Natalie, I have not taken any birth control pills yet. Although doctors suggests that birth control pills may help, due to the side effects of it i have not taken it. I rely mostly on homeopathic medication which seems to be of some help to me. I also find out that the doctors these days are all about treating symptoms and not patients. I went recently to the ER due to shortness of breath for unknown reasons. Went to see the doc and even before helping me with my problems, she concluded that i had depression and anxiety. She gave me medication for it, which i discarded. Later on after the spring season had ended, it went away. Never occured again. Was seasonal allergy induced asthma or something. Isn’t that horrible what the medical system doing to people, for people like me that fight with endometriosis and many other related symptoms because of that, Medical industry is clueless about the different problems I go through and they are not doing anything to help endometriosis patients. I know that there is no real cure for it. Watch what we eat, reduce stress, and exercise. I have no desire to take birth control pills that most likely ends up causing other problems . I am not prepared to go through any more painful symptoms than what i already suffer.
