To avoid the "please just kill me now" pain?

I have endometriosis, lots of women do I know but it causes so much pain!

Not a little bit either its like someone suddenly stabed , it will linger for a few moments then go away only to come back later, sometimes it hangs around as a dull pain for a few days but more often than not its the sharp one.

Diet wise, I am a lacto /ovo vegetarian.

I do not drink milk with any hormones added to it and the eggs I get are local without hormons/antibiotics and such.

I rarly eat any type of soy product though when I do there is a marked inscrease in pain within a few days unless it is a very small amount.

Anyone have any tips diet wise or anything that could help?

I'm afraid hiting the gym is out of the question, I'm in physical therapy 3 times a week and past that the only thing I can do is swim, I can not even walk down to the bloody mailbox at the moment

Aww..I feel ya. I had that for a very long time and battled it until I couldn't anymore. I don't know of anything that will help and believe me I tried everything. I had 4 surgeries and it kept coming back. Sometimes a heating pad on my belly would help but not that much. It blocked my tubes, wrapped around my colon..it was a mess in there. Then I went precancerous and decided to have the hysterectomy..seeing that I couldn't have kids anyhow because of the messed up tubes.

You could try some of the natural things mentioned on this page.

Good luck to you.

Ohh a cookbook, my weakness.

Alas I'm out of budget for buying more this month.

I do not know if I can do Yoga or not though I would think it would help.

I know I can not do anything that puts stress on my tendon or calf muscles.

If the pain only lasts a short while, you could try meditation/yoga-type breathing/relaxation techniques/Lamaze, etc.

I used to have killer migraines (which I later linked primarily to dairy), and this helped. I used a sort of modified version of Lamaze, created with the help of a formerly pregnant
friend.
