I have endometriosis and adenomyosis when I get these awful pelvic cramps they radiate to my right rib cage. Is that normal? Should I be worried?

I have endometriosis and adenomyosis when I get these awful pelvic cramps they radiate to my right rib cage. Is that normal? Should I be worried?

Explainable: 33y w. flank pain while "endometriosis cramps". Endo a theoretical disorder & no definitive etiologically proof. I studied 100 cases; found joint hypermobility in most. IMO, pelvic girdle instability, enhanced by hormone Relaxin, arouses painful pelvic ligament stretch during menstrual cycle. Innate response to ligament strain is painful soft tissue spasm; latissimus & gluteus; after Dr. V. Mooney ...Read more

Pain on left side feels like trapped gas and it is felt on both lower and upper quadrants (low rib and underneath) Usually every few months after eating. Area hurts if pressed on. Could endometriosis or ovarian cysts be causing it?

Pain on left side feels like trapped gas and it is felt on both lower and upper quadrants (low rib and underneath) Usually every few months after eating. Area hurts if pressed on. Could endometriosis or ovarian cysts be causing it?

Splenic flexure: The colon takes a sharp 90 degree turn under the left rib cage and this splenic flexure is the site of trapped gas at times. Applying heat to the abdomen and drinking hot water helps break down the gas enabling you to pass it. Taking simethicone after meals helps prevent gas build up. If these measures relieve your distress, it would rule out the other diagnoses. ...Read more

I have endometriosis but I have been feeling very sick to my stomach and I keep having chest and back pain that happen randomly. Could that b endom.?

Yes, sadly: Endometriosis can cause back pain, nausea and stomach pain. However, you wouldn't want to miss something else that has to do with the gastrointestinal tract. I would write down your symptoms and when they occur and if they are triggered by eating or anything gastrointestinal. Then see a gynecologist and discuss your diary. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with endometriosis for about 10 years and I have different pains now that are chest pains and strange pelvic pains. See doctor?

Yes: I do not treat endometriosis but I do know that it can affect the chest. When a lung collapses on its own it is called a spontaneous pneumothorax. There is a subset of this that occurs in conjunction with a woman's menstral cycle. This is called a catamennial pneumothorax. It is felt this is due to endometriosis in the chest cavity. ...Read more

Having laparoscope fr endometriosis, poss on diaphragm; chst CT shows bochdalek hernia. Shld it be fixed? 43, sev ongoing sx, chest tight/dyspnea/pain

Maybe: Bochdalek hernias are there from birth, and are commonly found on ct scans. Right sided hernias typically contain a small amount of fat, are asymptomatic, and can be safely watched. Left sided hernias can be like this, but may contain the stomach or other organs. See a general or thoracic surgeon with experience in laparoscopic hiatal hernia for a consultation. Bring the ct scan! ...Read more
