Nerve pain: Classically it is taught that nerve pain is burning in nature so this sounds like something is causing irritation of the nerves to or in your pelvis. This could be associated with the endometriosis.

Pelvic Pain: You may have your answer right there. Endometriosis and adenomyosis (although you are young for that) can cause chronic pelvic pain. Acute pelvic pain can be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease or a ruptured ovarian cyst. Best to see your doctor for further evaluation.
