Endometriosis Cause Nerve
Not damage but pain: Endo has been well documented on the sciatic nerve and also the obturator nerve. This causes intense, sharp electric shock type pain in the area the nerve goes - the sciatic down the back of the leg, and the obturator typically behind the knee. Once the endo is surgically excised, usually the pain is immediately resolved and there is usually not any permanent nerve damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon).

Where would endometriosis be if it were to cause back of thigh/leg pain (such as obturator/pudendal nerves) In need of some suggestions to ask my consultant about?
In the cul de sac: The endometriosis implants are likely located in the cul de sac of Douglas, a space in the pelvic cavity behind the end of the vagina. The implants are sitting on the peritoneal surface and immediately below that location are the nerve branches to the back with radiating leg involvement. Laparoscopy is needed to visualize that location. ...Read more
Bulging disc cause fertility issues? Lumbar spine nerves burned, still have pain.Is it endometriosis?Have symptoms but blood test and ultrasound fine?
Unknown: The top theories in order: 1) implants form from back-flow of menstrual endometrium through the tubes into the pelvis, 2) disease spreads through lymphatics and/or blood vessels, 3) 'coelomic metaplasia, ' in which normal cells change into endometriosis.

Genetics: We are now learning that genes have a significant role in determining who gets endo, and how severe it is. Somewhere between 10-20% of women with endo have bowel involvement. Rectal and sigmoid locations are the most frequent sites for bowel endo, and it causes pain with bms all month long. You usually can't see endo on colonoscopy so many women arent diagnosed by GI docs to whom they're referred. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Endometriosis: There are certain proinflammatory substances that are secreted by the ectopic endometrial tissue that are very irritating to adjacent tissues and nerve endings causing pain. These substances, ie prostaglandin, will cause uterine contractions that are also painful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, it can: Endometriosis can and does interfere with ovulation as well as fallopian tube motility(the ability to conduct the fertilized egg to the uterus). Researchers are not exactly sure why, whether the endometriosis implants secrete a substance that does that or not, but 40% of all infertility patients suffer from endometriosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can clomaphene cause problems when I have endometriosis ? Did clomaphene work or make endometriosis worse?
Talk to your doctor: Clomiphene alters hormonal balances in the body, especially of estrogen. This is how it works as an infertility drug. Endometriosis can be worsened by the presence of high levels of estrogens. Clomiphene use is relatively contraindicated in women with endometriosis. But again, you should talk to your doctor since only they know why you may still need to take the drug despite your condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
