Anyone know how to calm down crippling endometriosis cramps? I plan on calling my doctor on Monday about it but I’m still wondering if there’s anything I can do instead of constantly taking pain meds that barley work half the time

      CBD and THC tinctures, balms, edibles and smoking has been what helps me most. Hot baths (like burning hot) and tea and heating pads. Tens units can help too

      I take Celebrex it’s an anti inflammatory that can cut the pain a bit. Heat pads and hot baths. I got laparoscopy a couple weeks ago and the surgery is meant to help improve your pain by removing tissues and doctor said it could help my fertility and wouldn’t damage it. Sadly nothing was found anywhere but I didn’t see a specialist... also good quality CBD and cannabis topically, smoking, edibles, which ever works best for you. My next thing to try is going to be suppositories.

      Thank you for the information. This helps a lot. They told me my results came back abnormal and I had an overgrowth cell growing inside uterine lining and possibly 9% could turn cancerous- and gave me 3 options- take hormone meds for 3 mnths, full scraping, and last to remove it. But me not having kids yet and wanting kids one day- I opted for the hormone therapy. Anyone else going through this…? Pls help

      i had an exploratory laparoscopic excision surgery. it’s how they diagnose the disease & can remove the abnormal tissue. it’s considered the gold standard for endo treatment & is the only thing that got mine under control. i’d only go to an endometriosis excision specialist though- endo is tricky & hard to treat. seeing a certified endometriosis specialist instead of a regular gynecologist was the best decision i ever made. nancy’s nook website & facebook group also helped me a ton- they helped me track down my specialist. i went to Vanderbilt in TN & they were PHENOMENAL

      What kind of surgery did you have done? The pain is excruciating when the clots are passing through- I’m on Medroxyprogesterone on day 4 now to help with abnormal uterine bleeding.. I hope this med will help me- I don’t have children and would love to try for one- one day. I’m 39 years old and would love to save my female organs for that purpose..

      if you haven’t had excision surgery and are in crippling pain maybe try what i did & ditch the regular gynecologists and seek out an endo specialist. there’s a list of them on nancy’s nook website or facebook page. i had to travel 2 states away but it was beyond worth it. one of the best decisions i ever made. the women at vanderbilt got me into surgery so quick & were able to save my ovaries & i have way less pain now. they actually listened to me & knew what they were doing. heating pads & cbd & tens units & pain meds are great but even then my pain was still debilitating. don’t loose hope! i went from excruciating pain to things being way more manageable after my surgery. all those things help in the moment but surgery helped me tremendously <3

      My mom got me a heat pad and got instant relief thank you! I’ll ask my doctor about diclofenac

      High heat, tens unit, and cannabis oil are my go-tos.

      Lots of ibuprofen and a good heating pad! If your doctor will prescribe it for you, I found diclofenac helps better and tramadol. I hope you get some relief soon!

      my go-to is 20 mg of delta 8 with a good heating pad, & extra strength ibuprofen or sleeping meds to knock myself out if nothing else works. hot tea, making sure i’m eating plenty, lots of sleep, keeping my iron up, drinking a ton of water or gatorade & wearing compression socks helps me too

      Heat can help. I love my heating pad, a hot water bottle works too.
