Endometriosis pain a year after laparoscopy with mirena coil

Hi, I've had 2 laparoscopies over the past 3 years for the removal of endometriosis and it has been a year since my last one where endo was found, on my ovaries, fallopian tubes, the back of my womb, bladder and bowel. I had the mirena fitted during my last surgery and since then it has worked quite well to keep periods and pain at bay with only light bleeding and reduced pain but over this past 3 weeks my endometriosis symptoms have been significantly worse, although there has been no bleeding the pain has been extreme in my lower abdomen, lower back and the top of my legs, it has caused dizziness, nausea and actual sickness a couple of times. I have also spotted small blood clots in my stools which I have never noticed before. I was wondering if anyone else has had experience of their endo growing back so soon with a mirena fitted? I'm hoping that this pain may have been brought on through stress at work and that it is not the return of endo. Thank you :)
