I get frequent abdominal pain and constipation but doctors are not sure if I have IBS or endometriosis. Is there a link between them?

Chronic pain : Symptoms of chronic pain in the abdominal area are very common in many conditions, and are linked to autoimmune, inflammatory, traumatic, and emotional disorders. It is difficult to diagnose if there are several doctors involved in the care, and they do not have a common ground knowledge of the patient. A well informed patient is very important in helping the treating clinicians in this task.
