Hi sisters. I have been having pain coming from my tailbone, going into my right hip, and radiating down my right leg to the point where I feel my leg go numb at times. It is truly hard to walk when this happens. I was diagnosed with Stage IV endo in Feb. 08 and I am currently taking Lupron Depot and Aygestin to help keep it at bay the best it can......considering a total hysterectomy soon also even though I know it is not a cure for endo. Anywho.....I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what you have experienced. I have been told that sciatic endo is not very common but I am truly unsure as to what this actually may be. My doctor knows I am having this pain but didn't really address it......
Any advice is always great and I am grateful for all of you.
is the Lupron the shot? are they giving it to you in you right buttocks? that could be it. maybe they hit a nerve. I have siatic pain on my right that goes down my leg and it makes my leg numb. thats from my endo being on my spin and everywhere else. I would think thats whats bothering your leg
I appreciate it sweetie. I have been lucky....I haven't gained any weight. I feel like a goodyear blimp though. Stay tired all of the time, feel like poo, and my doc and I are talking now about a hysterectomy (even though we all know that is not a cure for endo.) just to try and bring back my quality of life. I am definitely going to ask him next week when I go for my injection. I appreciate your info sweetie!
I wish I knew honey. I don't like the way I feel at all since I have started taking Lupron and Aygestin. I actually feel worse than I ever did since I started taking this medicine. My doctor and I are actually considering a total hyst. even though we know it is not a cure for endo but it may help me. Since I cannot have children because of this terrible disease, I seriously considering that option. I just don't know what to do.
