I have severe leg pain that worsens at different times in my cycle (usually menstruation an ovulation ) but I cannot seem to find much information on whether or not this could be a symptom of endometriosis. I have seen it mentioned briefly but as it is not a ‘classic symptom’ I’m struggling to get any useful info.
I do have painful periods, pain during/after sex and a few other symptoms associated with endo but these are not the ones affecting my day to day life. The leg pain in excruciating and stops me from even sitting comfortably never mind sleeping. I have seen numerous physios and pain management specialists over the past few years but have not been given a diagnosis or explanation for the pain and what causes it/how to manage it.
The pain feels as though it’s radiating from my pelvic region down my thighs. It is not specific to one leg and can start in one and move to another or it can flare up in both legs at the same time. Sitting/lying still for long periods does seem to make it worse (recently had Covid and resting in bed seemed to make it so much worse). It can range from a full muscle ache to a severe ache and shard stabbing pains in certain areas.
I am really struggling to find information relating to leg pain and doctors do not seem to be able to help me. Is it worth pursuing the endo route? Has anyone else has similar symptoms?
Any advice/help on this would be so appreciated.
