There is a limited knowledge about hormones and how imbalances might either be causing Endo or are caused by Endo, but does anyone else suffer extreme irritability - one minute feeling happy and the next wanting to pull your hair out?
For me this often coincides with my time of ovulation and pelvic pain, and pain having bowel movements and sex etc, but sometimes it feels like I am yo-yoing more than I am stable. This is hard on my husband who is a saint, and I always feel guilty but don't know what to do.
It makes me feel extremely unsociable and lacking in confidence when I have an episode of anxiety, and, since having major surgery 2 years ago to diagnose and remove the advanced endo, it has become the most debilitating part of living with the condition. My consultant has prescribed 10mg of Provera - 1 tablet per night and although this has done wonders for my pelvic pain, I am left with pretty much all the other symptoms. Hearing about similar experiences would help!
