Diaphragmatic? Good news...

Just a little thing I thought I’d put out there for you girls with Diaphragmatic Endometriosis.

A friend of mine bought me some Magnesium spray not long ago. Said it’s good for people like me with anxiety (magnesium helps nervous probs) and the spray absorbs the Magnesium into the skin better than taking pills do apparently.

Anyway, skip ahead a few months, I was having an unrelated research last night for my awful shoulder pain I get around my period.

I found a girl who’d said she uses magnesium spray and applies it every time her shoulder flares up.

She claimed the pain went in minutes........

And she was right!

I tried it myself and couldn’t believe it! It went in about 20-30mins!!! Hallelujah!!!

Anyone else who has experienced this shoulder pain will know the desperate lengths one is willing to go to to get relief. Thank goodness for Magnesium Spray! You can buy it at your local health shop. It’s about £6-£10 for a bottle and lasts ages! :)

Hope this helps! X

Me too, it's eye-wateringly painful isn't it. I've got severe pelvic endometriosis and battle with the shoulder pain (liked trapped nerve pain) and never found any respite so willing to give anything a go. I've not been formally diagnosed for diaphragm endo but have all the symptoms and am suspicious that's next on the horizon for me. Do u happen to know if that can ever be seen on a scan or does it have to be another lap to diagnose? x

I’m in exactly the same position as you are. Sounds mad but I’ve only had one Doctors appointment and that was so unsuccessful, I’m thinking about doing what I can to just treat myself really... and in the way I want to be treated. If there’s no cure for endo, I don’t see what I can do anyway but I’m just not getting help from anyone - apart from this fabulous site! :)

So, sadly re: your last questions, I don’t know at all. It’s such an annoying illness!Proper draining! X

Most doctors are utterly useless where Endo is concerned. I got through countless GPs and not one ever realised I had it...in over 15yrs! We’re up against it aren’t we! You’re absolutely right in feeling v much on your own in having to do what u can to treat yourself, I’ve done a lot of research myself and found out some useful things none of which any doctor helped with! I’ve been round the block & had a lot of surgery so if I can help at all do ask me stuff. I feel for you, it’s a horrid draining illness isn’t it. Thanks for your messages and a great post! X

Awesome , thank you for sharing

Great news, but what about endometriosis tissue growth. Does this spray has any role in decreasing tissue growth or just for nerve pain?? Thank you again for giving us some hope and wishing you complete cure...

I read someones blog saying a similar thing, apparently around the luteul phase of your cycle you have less magnesium. She kept having neck pain around this time. She bought the magnesium spray and it worked wonders! x
