Did Endo come back?

Im 36, I luckily have 2 children... but when I was 15 I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, went thru laparoscopic surgery and hormones for a year. It took care of it mostly, and I hAvent had many issues... until now. Last year I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, always tired and in pain. But then I began having heavier periods, stronger cramping... and now ive got a low back ache, all month long until the day of and then its back. Im having breast pain, nite sweats, headaches, and burning sensations near ovaries. Im just miserable all month long... I dont know where to start, who to see... its been so long ago I went thru this.

Hi there

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing endo-like symptoms again. Endometriosis can come back. Because it is an oestrogen-loving disease, if you are still producing oestrogen (decreases at menopause) then it is possible for the endometriosis to re-occur.

However there are other things it could be (the joys of womanhood!) and the only way to find out is to visit your GP and ask to be referred. With your previous history they should be happy to do this.

Good luck!
