Bad day and paranoid

I've had quite a busy day trying to get bits and bobs done around the house. Now my hips are burning and lower back is twinging with the wrong movement, I have been bending down doing some gardening (not much) may I add. Now I get paranoid that this is mechanical back pain and not endo when I have a day like today. I'm really worried that my lap won't show anything,

Does anyone have similar symptoms in regards to exercise/movement that has been formally diagnosed?

Many thanks

Hi durdledoor,my back pain is worse if I over do it too. Try ice pack really helps. Having a really bad day with pain as well,don't think lying still in mri for so long yesterday was good for me and I've been in excruciating pain since. Do you have a tens machine that helps (apparently) I still don't have one. Ice pack for 20 mind my doctor told me to do. Hugs xx


Hi thanks Victoria, ice actually really hurts me but I do use hot water bottles and wheat bags, I haven't brought a tens I need to look into how much they cost, when do you get your results from the mri?


Think a tens machine is about £25. they didn't say when my results would be ready but soon. How's things going for you?? Any news?? This waiting is awful can't believe it all takes so long. Xx


That's not too.bad, okay hope you get them quickly!! No news still waiting for lap in April and yes I agree the waiting is just hurrendous!! :( x


Hey, I to get these twinges and pains when exercising, or movements such as stretching, reaching lifting heavy objects, wearing high heels and standing for long periods. I still am yet to be diagnosed and have my Lap friday (as your aware) but feel it could be spinal and I am looking in the complete wrong area if it wasn't for all my other symptoms. I have read that endo affects the Sciatic nerve (hips and legs) so it's possible it's related check out this artical.


Hope you feel better soon xxx


Sorry my Ultrasound scan not lap!** xxx


Thank you so much Chelsea, the article has been a great read! X


Hi, I've got my lap coming up, so havnt been diagnosed but like you, if I'm busy my pains get worse, hip pelvic groin and back and legs
