I was wondering if Endo can make you feel run down and sick some times. Just bleh, maybe almost flu like. sometimes nausea sometimes not.

" yes, endo can be a part of why you feel sick. there are studies that show that people with endo are more likely to have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, thyroid issues and a whiole long list of other issues. (Oh... one of those being a weakend immune system) Do your research and start tracking how you feel in a calendar or dated journal. You may be able to get some of your other symptoms under controll with the help of a dr. and when you are sick with endo, fixing even the smallest issues can be a major help. "

" For the record, I get nausea pretty much every time I eat... even if i only eat a cracker or 2. (I basically only eat 2 times a week now because of how sick I feel when I eat... yeah... not healthy, but I know how you feel) "

" IS your nausea from the pain or.. just in general? When do you feel pain with your endo?

I def have stomach problem sometimes.. I havent been officially diagnosed with Endo.. still working with doctors, right now Im with the GI doc trying to hopefully rule that out 1st. "

" oh and as a side note, I have also been SO incredibly stressed for months now, and I have no idea of some of my nausea / sick feeling is that.. or worsened by that. "

" I have the same symptoms and just found out this year that i have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, RLS and Endometriosis. I can't remember the rest right now. I would look into it. I seen over 30 doctors in the last ten years and it took an emergency room doctor in another state to diagnose me. "

" I'm not sure if it's related to the endo or all of the hormonal changes that effect endo... but I definitely just feel icky for periods of time. I started keeping track and realized it's more around ovulation time and the week leading up to my period... SUCKS because it pretty much just leaves me with one week of feeling somewhat OK. Just keep track and see if it's related more to the stages of your cycle or what you're eating and when you're eating. I know for me I sometimes experience low blood sugar as a result of the changes in my hormones. So there are certain times of the month I have to be very careful about what I eat and when I eat. Trust your instincts... Stay encouraged :) "
