What are your symptoms and how frequently do you experience them?

I thought it would be interesting to discuss what our symptoms are & how frequently we experience them. There seems to be a lot of variation in endometriosis symptoms & it might also be helpful to see that others have the same issues!

My worst symptom is stomach/bowel issues. Very sore, bloated stomach and IBS type cramping and frequent need to use the loo. I thought it was IBS for years until I tried Zoladex and that symptom dissipated! At the moment I'm in a bad flare & am having this symptom month round. I last had surgery 5 years ago.

I also get terrible menstrual cramps throughout my period.

Whilst I've been in this bad flare I've also been very fatigued.

Just to top off this really positive post (hah!) I also have issues with anxiety, and sometimes depression which from what I've read seems to be fairly common with endometriosis.

How about you ladies?

Fatigue and brain fog are by far my worst symptoms, and I have never noticed a pattern of occurrence, which is super annoying when trying to make plans! x
