Why does endometriosis cause tiredness?
I know endometriosis causes tiredness but does anyone know why?its not due to heavy bleeding in my case as I have a coil which calms the bleeding down.
I think it might be something to do with the inflammation, which our bodies then work to fight which uses energy. X
Oh right that would make sense.
I know when I had my first lap and excision my energy levels improved massively X
I would also rule out other possibilities my daughter was struggling to stay awake most days and it turned out she had a vitamin be 12 deficiency as well as endo it might be worth getting it checked out Good luck
Thanks I don't think it that I've recently had my bloods done thinking something might show up but they were fine.
They don't test b12 in a Normal blood test though
Oh right I will ask the doctor thanks.
Same here I have b12 deficiency anaemia and folate deficiency although I have been on tablets and injections for a long while don't feel any better x
How did you find that out?
I told my doctor how I was feeling and there did a full blood count and test x
Thanks I'll ask my doctor about it then.
because endometriosus is an auto immune disease just like hashimotos or RA or lupus
Thanks hopefully the specialist centre will be some help when I go next month
successful so far but I have had constant cramps since the egg was fertilised, which obviously feels worrying...
tested for Endometriosis and informed me I may have PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) caused by endometriosis...
I'm one of the lucky ones to have been able to have children while having these horrendous conditions...
