To avoid the "please just kill me now" pain?<br><br>
I have endometriosis, lots of women do I know but it causes so much pain!<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
Diet wise, I am a lacto /ovo vegetarian.<br><br>
I do not drink milk with any hormones added to it and the eggs I get are local without hormons/antibiotics and such.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone have any tips diet wise or anything that could help?<br><br><br><br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:">

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.<br><br><br><br>
You could try some of the natural things mentioned on this page.<br><br><a href="http://www.endometriosissupport.com/Herbs%20to%20Avoid%20color.htm" target="_blank">http://www.endometriosissupport.com/...id%20color.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
Good luck to you.

bikram style yoga seems to do well for women with endometriosis. also, a friend of mine LOVES this cookbook (she's vegetarian too): <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FEndometriosis-Key-Healing-Through-Nutrition%2Fdp%2F0007133103" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Endometriosis-.../dp/0007133103</a>

Ohh a cookbook, my weakness.<br><br>
Alas I'm out of budget for buying more this month.<br><br><br><br>
I do not know if I can do Yoga or not though I would think it would help.<br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> friend.
