wow. Sorry you have been suffering so.

I have heard specialists of all types speak on FM.

When the gynecologists talk, they talk often of endometriosis and other GYN issues which can co-occur with FM. :(

I hope you find total relief soon! :)

Please do let us know how you are doing?



Hi there, so sorry to hear how you are struggling, it sounds very tough.

I have endometriosis & have recently been told I may have fibro.

I am taking a birth control pill without any breaks, and having surgery to remove endo & treat any issues they find.

Because of this chronic pain (I have a strange type of migraine also) my GP has put me on a type of antidepressant, this helps with the long term management of pain. I am also having physio therapy to help with my pain and fibro symptoms.

Emotionally, I'd really recommend speaking to a counsellor, this can be incredibly helpful. Illness takes a large toil on us physically, and we often forget or ignore the immense emotional strain we have to deal with. As you have a family that obviously relies on you, counselling may be a great help for you.

These are really nasty illnesses, that are such a heavy burden physically and emotionally. We all need support in both areas. From my experience, this has been incredibly helpful as I found endo & the exhaustion and pain to really ruin my personal life, my job and my studies. Seeing a counsellor has been immensely helpful and guided me through these difficulties. Speaking to someone unbiased, who isn't a friend or relative, is a fantastic and positive tool for helping me deal with my illness.

I really hope you begin feeling better and find the best treatments for you. These are really horrible illnesses, so be patient with your body & take care of yourself! Thats what I'm trying to do at least, haha. Best wishes,

Hello there,

I understand how you are feeling. I am suffering frome endometriosis been in and out of the hospital and i never had surgery. I finally came across black strap mollasses,nattokinase and serraptese. Its been several months since i have been taking these supplements my periods are allot better and i have less pelvic pain. I am healthy and dont take any kind of medication especially when i take these supplements. Stay away from caffiene and alchohol and eat allot of nuts,poultry and vegetables and fruits.

I believe we all can be healed and cured from endo.I wish you the best!
