Hi to all the girls reading this I'm new to this forum and so grateful that I've found it. I have endometriosis and I am on a hormone treatment, at the moment all seems to be controlled for the first time in a while. Although I'm writing on here as I'd really like some advice, I seem to pick up bugs, viruses and infections all the time and it seems like I'm constantly ill. Also with the fatigue that comes with this disease it can make it very difficult at times to get better. I've had blood tests for my iron, thyroid and liver function which have all come back clear, but I don't feel like the doctors at giving me any help or suggestions, if anyone can give me advice I would really appreciate it, thanks for your time x

Hi. I know how you feel I've had constant sinus problems for the last 2 moths+. I have no sinus problems according to an ent as my scans were clear. I also have a permanent head cold which I can't clear, this adds to my dizziness and wooziness but gp says I can't do anything about it. Medications give me side effects. Its because endo is auto immune related I think. But we se gynaecology not immune system consultants. Go figure. I take supplements with litte success but b12 has helped a bit with my tiredness. Good luck x
I am exactly like this... i was diagnosed 7 years ago i have a 4 year old and my symptoms have gotten worse over the last 12 months. My son picks up allsorts from nursery and passes to me. Im drained constantly. Had loads of bloods scans but all they found was im vit d deficient. Its awful... hope you feel better soon x
I have had severe asthma and allergies since childhood and then severe endo as an adult. Turns out, there may be a link according to some research. Indeed, this is an inflammatory disease that can tax your immune system leaving you vulnerable to infections. After 3 surgeries, I still have pain, fatigue, intestinal problems, depression, anxiety ... you name it. I take B12 and Vitamin D to help, but there seems no end in sight.
