Endo Question... Weirod feeling

I think I am loosing it.... My pain in my left lower pelvic side is pretty uncomfterble tonight... I feel like I am getting some sort of electrical charges down my leg all the way to my ankle... Is this normal? I have felt pain in my leg before but never this kind of electrical type of feelings. It's almost like some thing is hitting a nerve... Any thoughts!!??

Endo Question... Weirod feeling

I'm sorry your experiencing this new type of pain Something *hitting a nerve* could be a real possibility <sigh> Have you ever been dx'd with having any type of Nerve Damage? or Back problems? I ask because both those conditions could create this type of pain
Hopefully, someone will come along with some more insight or experience with a similar pain. IMO, I would relay this to my Dr so he is aware of this new symptom....there could be something he can try or do that could possibly help alleviate it ?!? Pls keep us posted! I do hope you can feel better soon

Endo Question... Weirod feeling


Thanks for your responce... The only real back problems I've had stem from my childhood, age about 15 to 20 yrs ago. When I was 6 or 7 I was in a car accident and had back & neck problems for about 4 or 5 yrs. Other wise besides tht I have never really had a hole lot of back pain. Maybe a day here or a day there every so often. I have never been diagnosed with any nerve damage either.

I am so post to be getting a call some time today from my family doctor with the results of the MRI so I will be sure to mention this to her. Would anything like this show up on the MRI? What could cause nerve damage or this type of feeling?

I will keep you all posted when I hear the results.

Endo Question... Weirod feeling

Ok this is so weird....i had my hysterectomy in July 2003..I have recently had these same feelings...except my pain starts at or around my buttocks region and go all the way down...it feels like a pinch or shock...i havent told my doctor about this because it comes and goes in a flash and doesnt do it all the time. I think it could be a pinched nerve or something along the line, i have had a few minor back problems in the past.. but now it has me wondering....im gonna make an appointment with the doc or chiropractor soon....will keep you updated...Good luck to all of you ladies...God Speed

Endo Question... Weirod feeling

When I told my doctor about this she felt it was from the Endo or Adheasions. I told her it felt like something was hitting my nerve & sending electrical shocks down my leg, kind of when you touch an electrical fence.

She said it was a very good possibility that something was hitting a nerve.

Would anything like this show up on the MRI? What could cause nerve damage or this type of feeling?
The surgery itself could cause Nerve Damage exp a Hysterectomy <sigh> Researchers have discovered a lot more into how the pathways of our Nerves are layed out. Previously, it was never thot to be a concern big enough to study and try to prevent this.
Women are wired differently, what they thot had no effect on our responses has proved differently, thus the research

Adhesions can wrap around a nerve also...as you know with Endo, Adhesions can become quite an issue. I found a few sites that discuss this issue <nerve damage> and how it can occur:

Some symptoms of Nerve Pain or damage:
  • pain located anywhere, usually superficial (on the surface of the body)
  • location does not change for subsequent episodes
    sharp, stabbing pain or constant, burning pain
    nerve pain or pain along the path of a specific nerve
  • sharp or stabbing or constant burning pain
    usually no loss of function
  • increased sensitivity of the skin, any touch or pressure is interpreted as pain
  • any touch or pressure is interpreted as pain
    movement may be painful

Gynecological Pain in the Clinic

Ilioinguinal Nerve Entrapment and Pain in Endometriosis

What problems can adhesions cause?
While most adhesions do not cause trouble, adhesions can lead to a variety of potentially serious complications including:
Pelvic pain: Adhesions are a common cause of pelvic pain – an estimated 38 percent of women suffering from pelvic pain have adhesions. Adhesions cause pelvic pain because they bind normally separate organs and tissues together, essentially "tying them down" so that the stretching and pulling of everyday movements can irritate nearby nerves.
((Kim)), did your Dr suggest any possible treatment options when she stated that the *hitting of a nerve was a possibility*??
Hopefully, she can find some further insight & relief to this for you
Good Luck

Endo Question... Weirod feeling


Thank you for all the information... I need to spend some time checking out the websites prior to my appointment on Thursday.

She did not give me anymore dirrection, just has set me up to see a new GYN on Thursday. Right now I am feeling great. This cr*p just seems to effect me about 10 days a month & may hit a few days a month besides the 10 days. When it hits I just want to die. I am in so much agony. I can't even rate the pain on a pain scale anymore. I've had kidney stones before and would take them any day over this stuff. I didn't even take pain pills when I had them. DH says I have a high tolrance of pain. But this just really knocks me out.
