Hi Everyone! Hope you are all keeping well. Long post, apologies!
So I was diagnosed with Endo via lap this June and since then I have developed even more symptoms. Just wondered if anyone else on here suffers from hip and lower back pain at all? The hip was a problem for me for a couple of years before diagnosis but used to be in line with my cycle. Now I get pain all month round for 99% of the days. By the end of the day I am limping home from work and unable to get the full range of motion in my hip/leg when sitting down (I'm usually super flexible!). I can't even really describe the pain... It's just very tight and achy and almost feels like there's a short string joining my hip joint together that is being pulled when I walk (I know that sounds insane!)
I'm not even sure if it is linked to my endo but I have a feeling it is. It is purely my right hip and recently in the last month or so I have been getting some lower back ache also that isn't too severe but just very uncomfortable - having trouble getting comfy in bed/on sofa etc.
I have looked up a little bit about sciatic endo although there's not an awful lot around about it. I wonder if anyone could answer my questions;
- Do my symptoms sound like they could be sciatic endo of sorts? Or something different?
- Would this usually show up on a normal lap or is there another form of diagnosis? And most importantly...
- What can I do about it?!? The pain is limiting my daily routine and work and nothing seems to relieve it! Also I am still waiting for my "2 month post-op" appointment - I'm only booked in for mid-November hence why I am seeking advice ☺️
Thanks so much to anyone who can help!
