    Hello... I have unofficially been told that I might have endometriosis. I have been feeling strange things around my stomach. As if somethig like a fiber is stretching through my stomach. Its a stretching, tingling feeling. Has anyone else felt something like this?

    does your doctor have a lap procedure set up for you yet?

    there are alot of things in a womens body that can cause strange pains but the only way to diag. endo is by lap and i would not start any type of treatment until then.

    endo can cause pulling pains which i have but i have a severe case where the endo is fusing my organs together so it is literally pulling things. i can tell when i cough or sneeze or stretch too far in one direction.

    but i would not worry yourself too much until you are diag.
    but it is important to stay on top of your doctor to find out if you do have it or if it may be somethin else.
