Back Pain and Endometriosis


I experienced terrible lower back pain for the longest time before my surgery, I even had a few times where I couldn't walk as it felt like my back was going to break! 😫

I thought I might have had a serious problem but after researching it, I discovered that the back pain is linked to endo! While it's not entirely understood why endometriosis can cause lower back pain, most believe it is the result of nerve damage, inflammation, lesions, and/or adhesions that are adjacent to the spinal cord.

A lot of women I have spoken with on the @endobeehive page have reported that they felt relief from their back pain after surgery to remove endometriomas from their body. A lot of women have also said that the pain shoots right down their leg.

Have you experienced back pain with your endo?

    I am experiamcingg so much of what you explain to be linked to endo but don’t know how to get the help for this as my doctors don’t seem to think it is something worth looking in to for me.. is there any way I can privately chat with you directly? Thank you

    I’m 24 and found out I have endo nearly 7 years ago. I had an 11cm cyst burst while I was backpacking round Sri Lanka 5 weeks ago. And I’ve had cronic back pain ever since. I’ve recently found out it’s a damaged nerve after spending weeks crouched over in pain!

    I’ve developed pain in my coccyx the past few months, to the point where it hurts to walk. I’m now seeing a women’s health osteopath who does internal and external work and some dry needling. My Osteo has informed me that due to being in chronic pain im constantly tensing my muscles subconsciously, this has then put out my coccyx and affects the ligaments in my pelvic floor. Since seeing an Osteo I have now had a couple of weeks pain free in my back and my pelvis. Cant speak Highly enough of attending an Osteo for these issues.

    Also i want to say that the doctors told me that after surgery the cysts are going to appear again and again. And not only in the genital area. Its can migrate towards another areas. They also said that endometriosis is not cancer, but they don’t have a treatment for this yet. So you cannot die from andometriosis, but it doesn’t has a cure till now.

    Hello girls! Unfortunetly, I have also endometriosis. I had a laparoscopy in January 2018, but they couldn’t remove all the cyst area. I have a cyst in the womb muscle, and that is called adenomyosis. It’s endometriosis but insisde of the wall of the womb. I have also lower back pains that radiates on the legs sometimes. It’s like a nerve inside the spine.
