Endo Bloating - Cure/Treatment?

Hi, I was recently diagnosed with endometriosis. About 5 months ago, I began having issues with my bladder, pelvic pain, abdominal pain, bloating, and digestive system. I started bloating 3 months ago and have been constantly bloated since then. I've never had this problem before and I'm afraid that it won't go away. It hurts so much and doesn't allow me to do normal things like laugh, drive, or work out. I'm especially concerned that I can't work out because I'm beginning my career as a top model in a month and a half, and I am in no shape to enter that profession with this problem. I've tried lots of things including being on an anti-inflammatory diet, and I just started using Now Progesterone Cream (natural). I've done a lot of research but I can't find anything on how to completely treat the bloating, does anyone have any suggestions? Also is this considered a flare up that will resolve or am I stuck with these issues?

Sounds like candida albicans overgrowth. You can sort it with diet. I've put a link to my previous post about it below. I'll just add that if you go and strict low carb diet it will make you feel ill as the Candida sends chemicals signals out saying that you need carbs. However, I think this short term ill feeling is better than drawing it out. You'll start to improve after a week and should feel well again after 3 weeks.



Awww dear how exciting must be to preparing for a modelling career! I really don’t want to put you down in anyway we are here to help each other and support each other but also to talk about our expiriences.... I was diagnosed with endometriosis 3 years ago and since then my life has hange dramatically.... I am sure that your physical appearance is very important as you are a model...... if we talk about bloating then this is one of most commons issues due to endometriosis... I don’t know what stage of endometriosis you are at the moment, mine is stage 4 and it is really bad :( was size 6 even after my two children I was fit but things have changed dramatically I am size 10 now and I look as if I was pregnant... I don’t want you to loose hope though because I have had laparoscopic treatment two years ago and when it happened after two months the bloated belly was gone it only came back 8 months later so I am also waiting for another surgery this time is going to be s major one due to the stage of endometriosis... I hope once you get the treatment you can go back to your normal activities. X
