Could Your Pelvic Pain be Endometriosis?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Could Your Pelvic Pain be Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful condition where the endometrium tissue lining the walls of the uterus, grows as implants outside the womb of the patient. This can lead to a number of painful conditions and is often considered as a common cause behind severe pelvic pain, as far as women are concerned. Here is all you need to know about Endometriosis and pelvic pain.

  1. Painful Menstruation: Depending on the stage of the condition, the implants could remain on the surface or go deeper into the ovaries which may cause acute and severe problem during ovulation as well as the menstrual cycles. This is one of the symptoms that one must not ignore. If you are having painful cramps that affect the pelvic area and the abdomen, and if these cramps last throughout the duration of the cycle, then there are strong chances that you are experiencing the pain that comes with Endometriosis. 
  2. Pain During and After Intercourse: While there are many reasons why women may face pain during intercourse, it may be noted that vaginal and pelvic pain that come during and after intercourse could point towards the presence of Endometriosis, which is causing irritation and discomfort due to the implants. 
  3. Bowel Movements and Urination: Usually, pelvic pain may trickle down to and also get activated by the bowels when there is a motion as well as urination. This is a common problem that can cause pain, which spreads throughout the region if the patient is suffering from Endometriosis. 
  4. Bloating and Other Symptoms: When the abdomen and nearby regions face bloating due to the implants and their painful spread, the pelvic region as a whole bears the brunt in terms of severe pelvic pain. The bloating and other symptoms like loose motions and constipation can also create pain in the abdomen and pelvic region on a persistence basis. Sharp pains may also shoot up and down the lower back due to such symptoms which should not be ignored if they do not abate within a few days. 
  5. Misdiagnosis: Many times, the bloating and pelvic pain may be linked with pelvic inflammatory disease, which causes pain in the muscles and joints. But if you are having pain in the abdomen as well as problems during your menstrual cycle, then it may be helpful to have the tests for Endometriosis done as well. 

In order to diagnose the condition, the doctor must ensure that proper imaging tests like MRI and CT scans as well as an ultrasound with lab tests based on blood samples have been conducted. The pelvic pain that comes with this condition can be treated with the help of pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin.

Hello lybrate user. Gas trouble is due to irregular diet habits. You can take the help of allopathic med. For emergency, but not on regular basis. Taking these medicines for long time have definitely many side effects. So better you try to take healthy meals at regular time. Don't skip meals or replace it with junk foods. Take aprox 10 - 12 glasses of water per day. Even after following these things if you are suffering a lot of gas trouble you can take help of homoeopathic med. Puls 30 / 2 globs x 3 times a day / 15 day.

Dear lybrate-user, the medicines as you told are able to give you just symptomatic cure only, NOT sufficient to give permanent cure from DU. For that you need to take moe superior medicines and follow some rules for your food habit and life style (at least for 1-2 months) till it subsides permanently. The symptoms you have told -'Evening times I feeling very difficult that my stomach was full with air like may be it was gas. Some times I feeling pain in chest @ different places in different times. Sometimes it was so uneasy to sleep' - are due to the side effects of the brands of capsules/medicines your taking.

What is the main difference between heart burn and Chest pain. Is it dangerous if heart burn persists despite taking medication. How can you distinguish/differentiate between heart burn.

General Physician,

The symptoms of acid reflux, including chest pain and heartburn, may ease considerably as you straighten your body to a sitting or standing position. Bending and lying down can make GERD symptoms and discomfort worse, particularly right after eating. Cardiac chest pain continues to hurt, regardless your body position. ECG is the primary test to differentiate heart pain and other tests may be done if it is cardiac.

Please stop cumin seeds however it is unlikely to have acidity with cumin seeds. You may have anti hyper acidity medicine along with anti emetic. Take cold milk in between meals avoid fried and fatty food items which increase acid secretion in stomach.

Please come back to me once your abdominal issues are sorted out because they are a priority. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

When a person drinks regularly, he gets dependent on the substance. This state is called Alcohol Dependence syndrome. As you had been drinking continuously, possibility is there you are having dependence on the substance. When a person in the dependent state suddenly quits the alcohol he develops a state called Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome, when the person experiences various symptoms like feeling restless & nervous, increased heart beat, decreased sleep, tremulousness, reduced appetite, seizures, hallucinations etc. Your feeling redness in face,& hot sensation in body, increase in heart rate indicate that you may be developing withdrawal. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including alcohol. As withdrawal symptoms are setting in, start treatment at the earliest before the symptoms progresses further. You will have to consult a Psychiatrist for it. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the you will be treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of alcohol will be managed through detoxification treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from alcohol. Next phase of the de-addiction treatment is Rehabilitation program, which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist alcohol, replace substance-using activities with constructive and rewarding non substance-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. If craving persist after you quit the alcohol, you will be prescribed anti-craving medicines. To keep up your motivation high & to prevent relapse, better join a support group after treatment. Support group consist of people who had abandoned drinking, & help each other to stay sober by conducting regular sessions & meetings. All the best for quitting alcohol. As alcohol is addictive & harmful for your body, quit it at the earliest.

Stress is one of the main reasons for people losing weight. So if you are dealing with a stressful situation at work or home, take up yoga or master breathing techniques to help you de-stress your body. Once you learn to de-stress and relax, you will find it easy to put on weight.
